The annual Christmas party for the students of St. Catherine's School took place in the dining area of St. David's Secondary School on Wednesday 11th of December. This yearly event is always one of the highlights of the school calendar and is always spoken of very fondly by any past pupils. The Leaving Certificate class of 2020 dress up for the occasion to put on a big celebration for the incoming students. The highlight of the day for a large number of these students were the arrival of Mr. and Mrs. Claus (who were kindly dropped down by the fire brigade as the sleigh was in for servicing prior to the busy Christmas period). Each student gets the opportunity to visit Mr. and Mrs. Claus in the grotto and receive a gift to mark the occasion. Plenty of food was supplied and games were organised to ensure fun was had by all who attended.
A big thank you to Niall Sheehy who supplied the music on the day. Also a massive thank you to all the teachers who were involved, in particular head elf, Ms. Doughty. But most of all a huge thank you to the staff and students of St. Catherine's who always make it such a special occasion.
