There has been a hive of activity lately and great excitement in the primary 1-3 classes at Maisondieu School, with pupils and staff being involved in various activities in the lead up to Christmas.
The primary one and two classes raised £300 for UNICEF, with a Christmas shop that they organised.
Pupils and parents donated gifts for the shop and pupils were invited to buy their granny or mum a gift for £1.
The money raised will be used by UNICEF to provide a ‘School in a Box’. The box will contain everything required to set up a temporary school for up to forty children in times of emergencies in third world countries. Enough money has been raised for two boxes.
On Tuesday, December 13, Primary 1-3 and the school choir entertained family and friends with a fantastic afternoon and evening Christmas concert.
The school’s fund benefited from the total of £730, raised through the sale of the tickets.
The school gathered with parents and friends to celebrate the coming of Christmas at their annual service held on Wednesday, December 21 in Brechin Cathedral.
The staff and pupils of Maisondieu would like to wish the local community a Happy Christmas and a Prosperous New Year.
