Christmas Events – 2017

We had so much going on over Christmas this year but absolutely loved every second of it! We started the festive season with a visit to St.Michaels Care where we were welcomed with open arms and performed some of our favourite Christmas Carols for the wonderful residents there. Next we were invited to Garlinge Primary School where we put together a Christmas story which we acted out and included classic Christmas tunes that we sang and danced along to. Then, our Children’s Christmas Party where we had a visit from a fantastic party entertainer and of course the man himself who came baring gifts for everyone. Following this we had our Movie Night and Sleepover with the senior students and teachers, dinner was served, games were played and then we all settled down for a Christmas movie and some zzz’s, only to wake up to a lovely brekky served in the morning. Our last Christmas event was our Christmas Carol Concert where we performed our Christmas Story on the Birchington Centre stage and served mince pies as our audience members arrived, the performance was a great success and the most perfect way to finish a very busy term. We’d like to take this opportunity to thank everyone for their commitment and support to these events during such a busy time, we only hope you enjoy them as much as we do! A big congratulations to all of our students that performed in the local Pantomimes, we managed to get round to all of them and were so proud seeing you all shine like the stars you are, well done...
