Day of won­der for happy kids

Bray People - - Christmas Time In Bray -

NO STONE was left un­turned as the sixth years of St. David’s in Grey­stones hosted a mag­nif­i­cent Christ­mas party for the pupils of St. Cather­ine’s School in New­cas­tle last Wed­nes­day.

Weeks of hard work and prepa­ra­tion helped en­sure the school’s din­ing area was trans­formed into a spe­cial at­mo­spheric win­ter won­der­land for the boys and girls of St. Cather­ine’s.

Christ­mas trees and dec­o­ra­tions were put up and Santa’s den had pride of place in the cen­tre of the hall.

The stu­dent’s of St. Davids put their imag­i­na­tions to use by dress­ing up in fancy dress for the oc­ca­sion.

On the day, 50 kids from St. Cather­ine’s School and their teach­ers and bus driv­ers were greeted on their ar­rival by the Christ­mas fairies and santa’s elves. Santa and Mrs Claus were very spe­cial guests and they were de­lighted to see the faces of the chil­dren light up with ex­cite­ment as they opened their Christ­mas parcels.

The boys and girls feasted on the tasty food the stu­dents had pre­pared and all the chil­dren had a great time tak­ing part in party games and they danced away to the sounds of disco and Christ­mas mu­sic.

The sixth year stu­dents who funded the event were more then de­lighted with the out­come and the great suc­cess which the day was.

It was one of the high­lights of the year and their hard work was jus­ti­fied by the sight of the happy smiles on the faces of the chil­dren.
