Mrs Claus saves the day!

December 27th, 2013

The children in the senior room entertained us last week with their Christmas play which told the story of one Christmas when Santa got the sniffles and couldn’t make the journey around the world on Christmas Eve to deliver presents to all the children! Thankfully Mrs Claus saved the day by doing the job herself with the help of Santa’s elves! Well done everybody,it was an excellent performance!

Enjoying the Christmas Play!

The children in the junior room thoroughly enjoyed the senior children performing their play last week. They would be a great help to Santa if he was looking for extra elves to help him out during the busy season!

The Children In The Junior Room With Santa

Rudolf and his reindeer, the elves and Mrs. Santa Claus were the subject of conversation with Mr. Santa Claus when he visited the school on the day of the holidays.  As usual he had a parcel for every child in the school and spoke to them also about the long trek across the world which lay ahead of him on Christmas Night.  We do hope that he made it to every house on Christmas Night and that everyone got what they asked for.

Hallowe'en Costumes

The children in the Senior Room entered into the spirit of Hallowe’en by wearing exciting costumes on Friday last. Fifth and Sixth class pupils took a break from their Maths Assignments on Thursday while the Third and Fourth class were gone to the Football Blitzes. During this little break they managed to make rice crispie buns for the whole school so that each child would have a treat on Friday.
