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.
