Schools ban video at Nativity play then charge for their own.

Greedy schools charging for Nativity plays.

Wakefield Girl's High Junior School, Cliff School and St Hilda's, West Yorkshire, are charging as much as a whopping 17 pounds for a recording of the Christmas concert and five pounds for a photograph, according to this report in the Daily Mail. I can add that similar practices are being exercised in South Shields, although not at the same fiscal rates employed in West Yorkshire.

Parents have been warned in South Shields not to video performances in case copyrights are breached, photography too was discouraged, so that the school could sell a selection of their own snaps taken during the rehearsal.

Of course, if schools could just decide for once to use The Holy Bible as the source material for the nativity Play, there would be no copyright issues to worry about, and we could photograph our children to create an important keepsake for this period of development in their life. Naturally, the schools would raise no money at all by going down this route!
