It is looking a lot like Christmas across many schools in the Lakeland Catholic School Division for their annual Christmas concerts.
This is the first year the school has been able to host in-person Christmas concerts since the start of the pandemic and the first-ever in-person concert for some of the students.
Meagan MacEachern the Communications Officer at Lakeland Catholic School Division says this is truly wonderful to be able to once again bring the school communities together to celebrate the Christmas season.
“Our schools work so hard to put together their Christmas concerts every year. For our students, seeing it all come together and having the opportunity to perform for their friends and families is exciting – and you can see proof of that when they are up on stage.”
Some of the kids have been organizing their concerts as early as November.
“For our students, these shows are an opportunity to showcase all the hard work they have been doing in their classrooms in preparation for their concert. For parents, grandparents, friends, and teachers, it’s a chance to see what they’re children have been so excited about for the past few weeks – the songs they have been singing, the dance moves they’ve been practicing – it all comes together during these events.”
