The final fortnight of the school year is now upon us and everything is drawing to an end. It is in these moments that there is always time for reflection on “what has been” and opportunity to be thankful for the gifts that each moment has brought to us all.
We have many such opportunities over the next 10 days starting with our Summer Celebration concert on Friday evening ..an opportunity to be thankful for our precious children who will delight us with their summer of fun songs. Please refer to the latest newsletter for details of all end of year celebrations.
ST VINCENT DE PAUL CHRISTMAS HAMPER APPEAL
Earlier this month, the Christmas Hamper Appeal was launched. The food collected is distributed to those in need in this area – and the need has not lessened in 2014 – so please give generously. Vinnies would like Christmassy food and food to make a meal for Christmas day. Here are some suggestions: tins of fruit/vegetables, biscuits, jellies, long-life custards, anything tinned, bottled or packaged that is festive – think what you would like to eat at Christmas. There will be boxes in the classrooms – hopefully every class can fill a couple or four! Start shopping this week and a token basket will be presented at our last day liturgy on Friday 4th December – 25 sleeps away. Thank you.
