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!

Santa Claus Visits The SchoolDecember 27th, 2013
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.
