Our 2018 Christmas Concert

On Wednesday 13th December 2018, the Beanstalk students, teachers and mothers took part in our annual Christmas concert. As with our previous events this was spectacular, exciting and amazingly well performed by all.

After setting the stage the children started to arrive and we wasted no time in getting a rehearsal in.
