Every Christmas the 6th Years of St. David’s organise a Christmas party for the students of St. Catherine’s school. Normally St. Catherine’s visit Greystones and are greeted by the 6th Year students before having a party and meeting Santa Claus and Mrs. Claus!
But with Covid-19 restrictions this year was a little different and students had to think outside the box.
The venue was switched to St. Catherine’s school and the visiting group was limited to Mr. and Mrs. Claus, along with the four head elves. The rest of the sixth years began preparing by creating Christmas cards and recording Christmas carols.
On Wednesday 16th of December Ms. Courtney and Mr. Maguire escorted the elves to St. Catherine’s School. Mr. and Mrs. Claus made their own way by grabbing a lift with Greystones fire department.
The students of St. Catherine’s got the chance to meet the visiting entourage from the North Pole in their own surroundings.
And, as always, the 6th Year students of St. David’s ensured that Christmas would remain a special time of year to the students of St. Catherine’s.
Well done to Ms. Courtney and Mr. Maguire on your work to ensure that St. Catherine’s party went ahead this year but most of all well done to the 6th Year students who contributed so much to make it such a special occasion.
Happy Christmas to all!
