Across Gunnedah, school students are practising Christmas songs in readiness for Carols in the Park.
When the Namoi Valley Independent visited St Xavier’s Primary School on Wednesday, Kindergarten were running through Jingle Bells to commit the words and actions to memory.
Carols in the Park will be held on Friday, December 1 from 6.30pm. The annual event will see schools, Plains Pipes and Drums, pre-schools, Gunnedah Shire Band and community groups come together for an evening of Christmas cheer at Wolseley Park.
The event will cap off with a round of fireworks.
In the case of wet weather, the event will be postponed to Sunday, December 3. The oval is an alcohol-free zone.
