Merry Christmas drama - Santa explains his theory to a skeptical Mrs. Claus (left) while North Pole folk wonder what to do about a warm-hearted snowman (above) during plays presented by students at Kennedy Langbank and Kipling Schools.

Kennedy Langbank School (KLS) students presented three plays for their families and friends during the KLS Christmas Concert held last Thursday in the school gym.
Kindergarten and Grades 1 & 2 students presented a musical called Christmas Crossword. Solving a Crossword Puzzle has never been so much fun, as the audience enjoyed performances featuring all of Santa’s reindeer (including Rudolf and Leroy the Redneck Reindeer).
Grade 3/4/5 students presented the second play entitled The Christmas Idol, by Kim Sharron. When Santa announces that he has decided to give Christmas a miss this year, a contest is held to decide if another holiday ‘idol’ could fill in for the man in red.
Ultimately, it becomes clear that Santa is the only one who can really fill that role.
In the Grade 6/7 student’s presentation of The Great Christmas Strike, by Denise Singleton and Natasha Husband – all the best-known actors in the annual Christmas drama (including the Christmas stockings and snowflakes) decided to go on strike (and meet with intrepid CTV reporters) to demand better working conditions and compensation. Thankfully, KLS students find a way to remind those on strike about the generosity that lies at the heart of Christmas.
The evening ended with the entire student body coming to the stage for a musical performance, as they wished friend and family in the audience a very Merry Christmas.
Elementary students in Kipling School also welcomed family and friends to their Christmas Concerts held last Tuesday.
Kindergarten – Grades 2/3 students presented a Christmas Musical entitled “Melton the Warm-Hearted Snowman” about a kind – hearted young snowman who risks melting because of his warm heart and responds by giving his heart away to the person who needs to know kindness most.
Later that evening, Grades 3/4 & 5 students delighted their audience with out-standing performances during their Christmas Concert…bringing the first half of the school year to a perfect festive conclusion.
