‘Christmas isn’t Christmas….till it happens in your heart….somewhere deep inside you, is where Christmas really starts’….That is the finale song at Dana’s Kindergarten Concert yesterday. An apt song now that it’s beginning to feel a lot like Christmas with malls decked in Christmas lights, carols and festive decoration, all mighty eager to cash in on the yuletide season. The concert put up by Dana’s K1 and K2 friends brought us around the world to see how different countries celebrate Christmas before retelling the real story and meaning of Christmas.

Dana’s class performed the opening act – ‘Shop till you drop’ – no prizes for guessing which country this shopping craze phenomenon came from!

Each year, I am filled with admiration and respect for the teachers for the time and effort they poured into getting ready the props, the choreography, the costumes, the rehearsals, the coordination. My heart is overwhelmed with pride at seeing the little ones perform their items with gusto and precision – executing so many steps on cues and making it seem effortless! Truly, our preschool education system is world class in this aspect. Our kids learn teamwork, discipline and creative expressions from a young age; most importantly, they get to taste the ‘fruit’ of their labour – the immense sense of satisfaction from putting up a successful performance and the deluge of hugs and kisses from their Daddies and Mommies thereafter. What an awesome end to the school year!

|Yet another beautiful milestone for our family…|
