Live Crib, December 2016
The children in St. Evin's School were delighted to visit the "Live Crib" which came to our school for a whole day in December. The crib, which was set up in the school shed, consisted of an array of farm animals including goats, sheep, a cow, and a donkey. Mary and Joseph characters stood beside a small "Baby Jesus", laying in a real manger. All the classes had an opportunity to move around the crib, touch the animals and experience what it must have felt like on that First Christmas night when Jesus was born in a stable in Bethlehem. Having the Live Crib in the school brought the real meaning of Christmas to the children in a truly memorable way.
