Christmas Preparations 2017

IMG

 

Dear Parents as we begin our preparations to celebrate the season of Christmas I wish to draw your attention to a number of activities and events which are taking place both inside and outside school. These activities are all geared towards preparing your child for a proper and balanced celebration of the Festive Season which is balanced with the joy, reverence and wonder of the Nativity Celebration  in school, at home and in our community.

Annual Saint Vincent De Paul Collection:

Thank you to all the parents and children who have so generously donated food, hampers and toys to our Annual Saint Vincent De Paul collection. The response so far, to this very worthwhile local charity, has been magnificent. This is one of the ways our school community brings the Christmas Spirit to others who are not as well off as ourselves.

Please note the final day for donations is Monday 4th December as a representative from the local Saint Vincent de Paul Society is booked to collect our school donation on the morning of Tuesday 5th December before we get our Christmas Dinner in school.

School Christmas Dinner (Christmas Jumper Day) - Tuesday 5th December:

Our Annual Christmas Dinner for children and staff takes place on Tuesday 5th December. In order to facilitate the staff receiving their dinner the children's dinner will take place from 11.45am to 12.40pm. All children and staff will wear Christmas/Festive Jumpers for the day to add to the occasion. Please note that all children will go home at 1.00pm on this day.

Christmas Pantomime Trip to Belfast:

Our Annual Christmas Pantomime Trip for our P1-P7 children to the Opera House in Belfast takes place on Wednesday 6th of December. The show this year is Peter Pan.

We will leave school at approximately 12.30pm returning for approximately 5.15pm

Parish Christmas Nativity Carol Service - Wednesday 13th December:

I am pleased to announce that our school will be hosting the Parish Christmas Nativity/Carol Service in St. Patrick's Chapel Ballymacnab this year. All our children will be involved and this event will now take place on Wednesday 13th December 2017. After consultation with our PP Father Carvill this has been moved from its traditional Sunday evening slot to the Wednesday evening at 7.00pm.

Christmas Trip To Navan Fort (Christmas Wish Day) - Monday 18th December:

All staff and children will travel to Navan Fort to experience the Christmas Extravaganza Show and also to visit Santa. On the way home they will stop off at the Market Place to hang their Christmas Wishes on the Library Gates.

Christmas Vacation - Friday 22nd December: 

Christmas Vacation begins on Friday 22nd December with the school closing at 11.30am to commence our Christmas Holidays.

 

School Re-Opens - Monday 8th January 2018:

The school will re-open on Monday 8th January 2018 at 8.30am with Breakfast Club.

Supervision will commence at 9.00am; Assembly will be at 9.10am and classes commence at 9.15am.

 

Warmest Regards and a Happy and Peaceful Christmas and New Year to all our children, parents and sponsors. Your continued support is greatly appreciated.
