Letters extra: Nativity plays - a plea for tradition

Re "How schools are killing nativity plays" ( TES 19 December 2003 ). I attended a nurseryreception nativity play at the school where I have been a governor for overnbsp;20 years. I did not recognise a single carol - the service was "jazzed up" beyond belief. Even the angels were jiggling to the "music".
