 The Saints Peter and Paul Cath­olic School held its 3rd carol service on Tuesday, at the school’s premises at Gbawe in the Greater Accra Region ahead of the Christmas holidays.

The programme which was on the theme “The Birth of Jesus, a Reason to Be Thankful” was taken from Isaiah 51:3.

The motive of the celebration is to remember the birth of Christ as staff members and pupils go on the Christmas holidays.

The KG2 pupils displayed a cho­reography dance whilst others also narrated the birth of Jesus in a form of a play.

The programme was graced by several dignitaries of the institu­tion.

The Headmistress of Saints Peter and Paul Catholic School, Mrs. Vera Naana Ap­piah conveyed a heartwarm­ing message the pupils, teachers, and distinguished guests at the programme. According to her, “Christ­mas is a celebration that everyone looks forward to, to make the year complete and also to thank God for giving them such a great opportunity”.

“The Bible tells us that the wise men were led by a star to find baby Jesus. It is therefore, our prayer that this star will lead us to find Jesus; this time not in a manger but in our lives”, she remarked.

Also, she emphasised the fact that Ghanaians should cast their minds to children who were suffering as a result of neglect, and child abuse as we celebrate this day.

The Local Minister, Rev. Father Hans advised the pupils not to mock those who would not get gifts this festive season but should pray for them and offer a helping hand if they could.
