Its now officially the run up to Christmas 2022. We will be very busy preparing for Christmas Shows, (part of our expressive arts and literacy curriculum); Christmas crafts which will be sold on our online shopping channel (part of our numeracy curriculum); a Marchnad Nadolig (With a free Santa's Grotto) Carol Service (school choir) in the local church and a Christmas raffle. We will keep you updated with all the Christmas events via this blog, so please share it with your family. I have also included a summary of whole school dates at the end of this article. As I have said before, we don't want to do what we did before covid, we want to do it BETTER! Please remember to check the website calendar, and if you think something is missing let us know. Here are the headlines this week:-
Christmas Show Tickets - We are delighted to be able to offer you 2 tickets per family per show (not per performance). Please note that if you have 2 pupils in the same pod then this is still 2 tickets per family. Please discuss within your own family who will have the two tickets. There is a finite capacity in our school hall which is why the staff are working very hard to do 8 performances across the school.
To Purchase Tickets please use the order form that has been sent to you. (Some received this yesterday, others will today). This must be returned by Wednesday 30th November. Tickets will only be allocated and sent home on receipt of payment (£2.50 per ticket - cash or cheque payable to Llanrhidian Primary School). Please send this in with your order form in a clearly marked envelope. Please note we are not selling tickets from the office. Once we have ensured that every family has had the option to purchase 2 tickets, we will then release more on a first come first serve basis. Please be kind to our office staff who will be ensuring this is a fair process. If you would like to be considered for a further reserve ticket, please let us know.
Photographs Friday 18th November - We will have having individual children photographs on this day. If you would like a family photo, please let the office know so we can arrange a time. The photos will be back in time for Christmas presents. You can decide how you want your child dressed for the photos, as these may make great Christmas gifts.
Children in Need -Friday 18th November - We will be raising money and celebrating Children in Need by having an odd sock day! Time to dig out those odd socks and show them off to your friends. A small donation to Children in Need will be appreciated.
Marchnad Nadolig December 13th. Market Stalls and Santa's Grotto 2.30 - 4.30 - With the cost of living rise, we would like to offer a free Santa's grotto to all our primary school pupils and their younger siblings. We need to source around 200 selection boxes for this and are hoping that a business may sponsor these for us. If you know of anyone, please ask them, or pass on their details to us. We are also hoping to run the event in a similar way to the Monster Ball. If there are any parents who are willing to run a parent refreshment stall, we would be so grateful. This was a massive success and the pupils loved it. There will be external stall holders in the marquee as part of the Marchnad" so this could be a great community event! Please spread the word!
