CHILDREN’S CHRISTMAS EVENT
A big thank you to all those who helped to organise this year’s Christmas Fair. Many of you came along and enjoyed the games, stalls and refreshments and we even had a visit from Father Christmas. We will let you know how much has been raised when all the Christmas events have finished.

CAROLS AROUND THE TREE
Tuesday 19th December 1.30 p.m.
Parents and friends are invited to join us for our annual
carol singing around the tree.
Refreshments will be served.

CHILDREN IN NEED
Thank you to all our families for supporting our fund raising for Children in Need. You raised £164.

THE GIVING TREE
Once again St Alban’s Families have been fantastically generous in supporting our Christmas Charity Appeal. We delivered 2 full car loads of donated food to
St Joseph’s Family Centre last week. The Giving Tree is completely decorated as a result.
Many Thanks.

PAPER CHAIN & RAFFLE
Buy a link for the paper chain (20p) and watch it spread around the school. Each link will have the name of the child who bought it. The chain will be cut during ‘carols around the tree’ on Tuesday 19th December and whoever’s name is on the cut link will win a Christmas prize. Links and raffle tickets are on sale at the school office.
