The children have performed the Nativity play, in front of their families, friends and community. We are seeing some potential stars already. The children have decorated boxes ready for donations of non perishable food items. As part of Christmas we celebrate the joy of giving with a donation box or two for the Salvation Army and the many families this Christmas. The children gave these food gift baskets to the Salvation Army on the evening of the Nativity. They also shared Christmas cakes baked at Preschool with the help of Sandra Goodwin. Thank -you Sandra. Jason from Earth Education made his last visit this week to encourage the links of recycling and the environment. We are going to the Lynmore end of year production on Tuesday 11th to see the children who were once at Preschool.
