Come along to St Malachy’s PS, on Beresford Avenue, on Thursday December 7, from 5.30pm-8pm, for a community-wide Christmas celebration to remember. As well as Christmas lights switch-on, the Winter Wonderland will have Christmas Market stalls, a Christmas trail, delicious s’mores, food trucks, book stalls, as well as raffles and games.
Children can post letters to Santa, and everyone can dance the evening away and get their festive-fever on! The main guest appearance will be from Santa Claus himself, who will be meeting and greeting children from his grotto.
St Malachy’s PS wish to extend this Winter Wonderland invite to the whole community, not just those affiliated with the school. The school prides itself on its inclusivity and diversity and family environment.
The school is also inviting the community to its Open Morning on December 5, from 9.30am – 11am.
