The Christmas spirit is alive and well at St Mary of the Angels primary school and they are sharing it with the rest of the community. Using materials donated to the school by Kirks IGA, the Year 5 and 6 students have used their talents to create decorations that are now on display in the window of the Bradley Street supermarket.
Kirks IGA manager Harry Kirk has extended his thanks to the students and their teacher Tiffany Martin for the wonderful decorations. He commended them for doing such a great job resulting in lots of positive comments and feedback from all the community.
Miss Martin said that they were grateful for the donation of materials and the students had a lot of fun creating the decorations.
“When Harry got in touch and said he was looking to get the school involved, I was only too happy to help,” she said. “The kids and I brainstormed some ideas and then they got to work and whipped up some crafty Christmas creations.
“They really enjoyed it and there was a lot of excitement in the classroom while they worked. It was such a fun way to finish off a year which has been challenging for all of us.”
“It was a great project to work on with the community, to help share the spirit and feel a little bit of Christmas cheer. Building positive relationships in the community from a young age is vital, and St Mary’s appreciated the opportunity to get involved.”
