Lucan Christmas Fair Ballyowen Community Centre December 2nd 11am to 3pm. Featuring A Christmas Market, Santa’s grotto, spot prizes and hot chocolate and more.

Christmas Calendars- County Photos came to the school recently and took a class photo. We have used these photos to make a class calendar for every room. They are A3 in size and would be a lovely stocking filler for Grandparents etc. They will be on sale from Monday 27th November, in the morning at 9am and before both pickup times. Children can also bring the money into school and give it to the class teacher. They are priced €3.00 each or two for €5.00.

All fundraising this year is going towards a sensory floor sticker and pathway which will benefit all the children in St Thomas’. Therefore, we welcome and appreciate your continued support.

Christmas Carol Service/ Saint Vincent de Paul Christmas Donations We will be holding a short Christmas Carol service in St Patrick’s church on the 14th of December at 11:15 (time subject to change should urgent parish needs arise). Children will sing carols and read Christmas poems. Please feel free to dress the children in Santa hats or Christmas jumpers. In the spirit of giving, we will also be collecting non-perishable foods to donate to St Vincent de Paul. We encourage all children to bring in something or whatever families can give at this time to donate for St Vincent de Paul. It is a great opportunity for children to experience giving to others. All non-perishable, store cupboard items, such as biscuits, pasta, dry grains, tins, boxed/packaged foods are suitable. The school is collecting items up until the 14th of December. The charity of St Vincent De Paul has a profound impact helping families in our local community and needs all the support we can give in their annual appeal. The school will be presenting the donations to representatives from the St. Vincent de Paul on the day.

Is mise le meas,

Teresa Moynihan
