CHESTERVILLE — The story of the true meaning of Christmas came to life as St. Mary Catholic School hosted their annual Christmas Concert on Friday. Mrs. Veinotte’s Grade 5/6 class narrated the story of Jesus’ birth with the help of Ruth Vanderlaand of Vanderlaand the Barnyard Zoo.

Students dressed as Mary, Joseph, the wise men, and others alike and had their photos taken at the Winchester Springs establishment. The photos were then put into a PowerPoint Presentation that coincided with songs that the other classes sang. It was a great modern take on the biblical Christmas story.
