8 of the greatest school Nativity moments ever

Get the tea towels and dolls out.

AH, THE SCHOOL nativity. We all remember the clamour to get some tinsel and a tea towel for our head the night before dress rehearsal. There was always the lucky guy and girl who got to be Mary and Joseph and bring the dolly to the stable. Then there was the tree, or the standard ‘angel’.

Then there are this lot, who probably didn’t take up a career in acting or musical theatre.
