Day of wonder for happy kids
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.
