The school has taken part in an International Christmas Decoration Exchange project by Europe Direct. We were given the names and addresses of 29 other schools throughout Europe in order to make and send a Christmas decoration and information about our school to the 29 schools we were linked to.
Class 1 made some glittery wooden decorations which were then distributed the schools. Then, we started to receive our decorations from the other schools. It has been very exciting to open the packages from places such as Lithuania, Romania, Greece, Czechoslovakia, France, Germany, Italy, to name a few, and to receive information about their traditions at Christmas and to learn about the children who made the decorations.
We had a whole school assembly on Friday 2nd December so everyone could see the decorations, we used the school map to look at where all the gifts came from and everyone, including Pre-school, helped to decorate the school Christmas tree with these gifts.
