Stock­ing-filling fun

Bray People - - NEWS -

STU­DENTS, teach­ers and par­ents were all feel­ing full of fes­tive cheer re­cently at St Kil­ian’s Com­mu­nity School, Bray, as they held their an­nual Christ­mas fair.

All man­ner of bar­gains were on of­fer and quite a few peo­ple dropped by to try and find that ideal last-minute gift for Christ­mas. Par­ents and stu­dents took part and used what­ever skills and ma­te­ri­als they had at their dis­posal to make ev­ery­thing from Christ­mas dec­o­ra­tions and cards to beau­ti­ful jew­ellery pieces. A big hit each year, how­ever, are the Christ­mas logs which get pride of place in lo­cal homes at this time of year.

‘It went re­ally well,’ said teacher Siob­han Gar­vey who helped or­gan­ise the event. ‘We had lots of par­ents in from both St Kil­ian’s and St Fer­gals Ju­nior and Se­nior. It was a joint ef­fort on the part of the three schools and the home school li­aisons re­ally. We also had two lo­cal gar­daí drop by and show their support which was nice too.’

The fair and a raf­fle com­bined also man­aged to raise €700 for the Or­der of Malta which will be grate­fully re­ceived this Christ­mas.
