Our Christmas Fair

Our Christmas Fair was held on the 9th of December 2018. There were lots of preparations for the fair weeks beforehand. Before the fair officially opened, our choir walked down to the church and we sang a few carols to encourage everyone at Mass to follow us back to the hall. The fair had many stalls including baking, slime and books and there was an area where you could do some art with the help of Orla, who had been coming to after-school for a few weeks to give art lessons. The fair also contained a kids area where you could make a donation and get your face painted, you could get your nails painted and there was also a sweet shop. There was also a Christmas fair raffle which took place by the stage of the hall. There were also guessing games such as how many sweets are in the jar. Overall, the Christmas Fair did extremely well this year. We raised a total of €11,887 for our school. Our raffle netted €5,295 and our Christmas Fair on the day netted €6,592. The Christmas Fair was a great success and it was lots of fun to help out with the 6th Class Baking Stall.
