About 60 St Joseph's School junior pupils charmed an audience of parents, grandparents and supporters with their Nativity play in the adjacent St Joseph's Church on Friday.

The assembly of youngsters wore costumes and with actions sang carols, beginning with Little Donkey, to tell the story of the birth of Christ.

The Queenstown school followed the show with a picnic for all 150 pupils at Jardine Park to celebrate the year.

The activity was part of the farewell to year 8 pupils who graduate today and soon depart for secondary education.
