It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas

St Austell Carnival

Over 100 pupils from Mount Charles School joined the St Austell torchlight carnival parade through the streets of St Austell holding their lanterns and entertaining the crowds with the infectious samba band beat.  During the week before, pupils worked with a team from Eden to construct and decorate their lanterns with quotes of love.  Miss Sangster had also been working with the samba band to provide the musical entertainment for the parade.  Well done to all who took part.

On a horribly wet and windy Friday night we held our annual Christmas Fair.  Unfortunately the bad weather seemed to put off some people from attending, but those who came had a good time and helped us to raise over £1000 for the PSA, so thank you to Mrs Gray and everyone who worked so hard to put the evening together – the grotto looked absolutely fantastic and the smell of turkey coming out of the kitchen was quite mouth-watering!  During the evening there were three main raffles, tombolas, cakes for sale, toys and games for sale. a brussel sprout tombola and a craft room where children could make crackers, bookmarks and prepare reindeer food to put out on Christmas Eve.

Christmas has now officially started with the first performance of the Infant Nativity ‘Prickly Hay’ having taken place yesterday afternoon.  The children have worked really well on learning the words to all the songs which they sung enthusiastically.  The Juniors enjoyed being invited to the dress rehearsal this week.  The Infants have two more performances left this week.

Then next week, our last week before the holiday, we have a whole host of Christmassy activities going on across the school.  Come back soon and find out what we have been up to.  In the meantime if you would like to leave a comment about anything you have really enjoyed over the last few weeks, why not do so by clicking the link below.
