Christmas Concert 2015
St Narsai Assyrian Christian College engaged in one of our most valued traditions, on Friday the 4th of December. We celebrated the birth of our Lord through a nativity drama, Christmas Carols and a video understanding the true meaning of Christmas.
Students performed the roles of Mary, Joseph, Herod and his servants, the Angel of the Lord, Angel Gabriel, the Heavenly Hosts, Shepherds and the Three Wise Men. They were accompanied by students and staff who performed Christmas Carols reflecting the important events of each scene. Students together with the college staff worked tirelessly to put on a marvelous production which saw the entire school engaged in singing and the joy that accompanies the birth of our Lord.
