Christmas Pantomime




14 December 2006                     

A packed school hall enjoyed an evening of pantomime, carol singing and mulled wine at the end of the winter term.



The evening opened with an inspirational address from Anthony Lutyens speaking about his debt of gratitude to the medical staff on and off Lismore since being diagnosed with terminal cancer and his offering the great sum of over 4000 he raised for the Oban Hospice after walking part of the West Highland Way.

The cheque was handed to representatives of Oban Hospice appeal by Flora MacLean and Eilidh Willis

The proceeds of the evening also went to the Hospice Light up a Life


The pre 5s with their teacher Tamsin MacVean then performed two action songs: I Saw Three Ships and Twinkle Twinkle Little Star. Their handmade ships were impressive.



 The Pantomime which followed was a cleverly scripted  Jack and the Beanstalk cleverly written and directed by Freda MacGregor and Mary MacDougall and brilliantly performed.


All the pupils played a part in the performance and thanks to the skilful makeup of Katy Wright some of them were barely recognisable.  Freda and Mary had managed to put in several very funny local flavoured jokes which added to the humour which the children were very adept at milking.


After the Pantomime the carol singing was accompanied by Ann Livingstone on the piano and the school recorder group. The mulled wine and mince pies was a great finale after Primary 7 boys John Carmichael and Christopher Willis had switched on the Light up a Life tree.
