Dear Parents/Guardians,

We have an exciting agenda for December:

Annual Christmas Decoration Competition
Wexford Co. Council is holding its annual Christmas decoration recycling competition again this year. The challenge is to make a Christmas decoration out of waste and recycled materials such as egg cartons, cardboard, newspaper, plastic bottles, cartons etc. If your child would like to enter the competition he/she must bring their decoration into school by MONDAY 5th December. Please ensure their name and class is clearly marked with it.

For those who bought tickets to visit Santa, a reminder that he is looking forward to meeting all the boys and girls on board the Stena on Monday 5th December. Remember there will be face painting, light refreshments, and parents will be able to have their children photographed in the Grotto, enter into a raffle and also do a little shopping on board. Don’t forget your tickets !
