The annual St. David's Christmas concert took place in the dining area of the school on Friday 21st of December. The concert gave students across all year groups the opportunity to showcase some of the skills that they had developed and perfected within the music club of the school.
Well done to all students involved! A special thank you to Ms. Wilson and Ms. Cunningham for all their hard work in preparation of the event.
Throughout the month of December students from St. David's have been gathering food to donate to Saint Vincent de Paul. Each tutor class in the school put together a hamper to donate. Students were asked to sign up to bring in one item and judging by the magnificent volume of food collected almost all must have obliged!
Well done to all students and thank you to all the parents and guardians for your kindness and generosity. Also, thank you to Ms. Kane for co-ordinating within the school.
On Wednesday 12th of December St. David's were delighted to welcome the students of St. Catherine's School, Newcastle for the annual St. Catherine's Party. The sixth year students of St. David's put on a fantastic morning of fun and festivity for the visiting school.
Students took part in fun games, had a disco and even got the opportunity to visit Mr. and Mrs. Claus in Santa's Grotto. All students from St. Catherine's were given a present by the visitor from the North Pole. St. David's students dressed up for the occasion with a wide selection of costumes on show ranging from elves, to T-Rex dinosaurs, to Tinkerbell! It was a magical morning for all!
A massive thank you to the members of the Fire Department who liaised with Mr. and Mrs. Claus to arrange transportation to the school on the day (the sleigh and reindeer were too busy preparing for Christmas Eve!). Several teachers were involved in the organisation of the event including Ms. Doughty, Ms. Carmody and Ms. O' Sullivan, to name just a few.
Above all thank you to St. Catherine's who really brought the event to life!
