Christmas Fair Craft Session – 15th and 22nd Nov


Today the school dining hall was busy with parents and pupils creating wonderful items which will be sold at this year’s School Christmas Fair (12-3pm, Sat 29Nov). The turnout was impressive so thank you everyone who came along.

A second Craft Session will be taking place on Sat 22 Nov 9am-11am - here’s the info for that:
We already have material & samples/instructions of the items we would like made & sold at the fair but what we now need are bodies to help make the decorations.
Everyone is welcome to help so please come. We would however ask that all children in P1-P4 attend with a parent / carer. However those PARENTS & CARERS that are not involved or are able to get away from football on a Saturday morning ARE welcome to attend WITHOUTare children. Invitation of course also extends to grandparents that can attend with or without their grandchildren. This first year we are incredibly lucky as a professional florist and parent at school will help us make beautiful table & door decorations to be sold at the Xmas fair. There is no need to bring anything, but do feel free to bring a flask & a snack if you fancy & think it will help you through the morning. We hope to see plenty of crafty helpers on Saturday!

All funds raised will go towards the new playground.
