  Wuhan Yangtze International School (WYIS) held its 13th annual Christmas program on December 4.

  "The Animals' Christmas," a musical directed by music and drama teacher Mrs. Deborah Cattell, included dramatic elements, dancing, and music performed by students of all ages; some of the performers are only four years old, and some others are in senior high school. Wuhan Troupe, a school dance group consisting of a number of elementary school children, kicked off the evening with several upbeat dance numbers. This act was followed by smooth jazz played by the WYIS Band. Some of the older elementary school kids played "Silent Night" on recorders. During the show, the Vocal Project and WYIS Staff Choir harmonized and sang a few Christmas carols. The drama portion of the program was performed by the Middle School Drama Class and introduced the birth of Jesus.

  WYIS was established in 2003 in Wuchang, and it now has a new campus in the Wuhan Economic and Technological Development Zone. WYIS uses American curriculum to teach students from over 20 different countries and regions of all ages, Pre-K to Senior High School.
