WHILE the Christmas pageant was on in Naracoorte on December 6, Padthaway Primary School students were busy performing in their own production.
The annual school concert was on and parents, staff and friends flocked to the Padthaway hall to watch the Christmas themed show.
All year levels, including the pre-schoolers, got involved to present three plays and a medley of dances.
Principal Cathie Biggins said it was "extremely well attended".
"The weather was very kind to us and it certainly was a lovely way to finish off the year, acknowledge the achievements of students and say a few farewells.
"There was a wonderful feel of joy and excitment among the kids. All their hard work paid off."
The Apex Citizenship award went to Kelsie Moyle-Read, the WAB Junior Achiever award to Stacey Hayes, the Treasury Wine Estate Sport award to Wyatt Fraser and the Principal's Award for Academic Achievement to Jessica Pretlove.
Class and Indonesion study awards were also presented.
The night ended with the "Christmas Boogie" followed by a visit from Father Christmas.
