Pupils thrill parents with ‘a midwife crisis’ show
Originality and hilarity was elaborately displayed by pupils of Greensprings School, Ikoyi, Lagos, during their Christmas drama, titled, “A Midwife Crisis.”
Parents were overwhelmed with laughter at the show, which was also attended by members of staff and friends of the school. The elementary pupils in displaying their arts thrilled the attendees with impressive performances.
The show was part of the tradition of ending the year with celebrations across the four campuses of the school, including the Anthos House- a school for special needs education.
A parent, Mrs. Onayimi Aiwerioghene, said: “I have never seen a Christmas show production this good. The costumes were perfect and the storyline of the nativity of Jesus dramatised from a midwife’s perspective was compelling. The midwife heard the news of a king that is going to be born soon, so she wanted to be the person to take the delivery and be glorified. She believed that kings are supposed to be born in the palace; so she ran helter-skelter in Jerusalem, looking for the palace where Mary would give birth to King Jesus only to discover that Jesus has been born in a stable.
“And rather than Jesus needing the midwife for his delivery, it was the midwife that needed Jesus, so as to be safe and free from sins. The teachers put in a lot of effort in preparing the students for the show and the students did very well. I enjoyed the show as it was filled with excitement from beginning to end. Kudos to the teachers.”
The themes for the Christmas shows at Lekki and Anthony campuses were “AIDA” and “Revelations” respectively, and parents were captivated by the presentations of the students.
The school’s Head of Corporate Strategy, Mr. Uche Ogbu, expressed satisfaction with the pupils performance across the four campuses.
“Though we are very serious with academics and five of our students emerged Top in Country in this year’s IGCSE exam, we take extra-curricular activities very serious. The stunning performances of our students in these shows support the fact that we are a school that provides well-rounded education,” he said.
