Two Sweet Christmas Poems

Little Jack Horner

Little Jack Horner

Sat in the corner,

Eating his Christmas pie:

He put in his thumb,

And pulled out a plum,

And said, “What a good boy am I!”

A Chubby Snowman

A chubby little snowman

had a carrot nose.

Along came a bunny,

and what do you suppose?

That hungry little bunny,

looking for some lunch,

Grabbed that snowman’s nose,

Nibble, nibble, crunch!

Getting Ready for Jesus

xxx
THE MOTHER-TO-BE

Without any doubt, the most eager person who was awaiting the arrival of Jesus was his mother-to-be. Mary had been told by the angel that her son was to be a special person, so she knew that the birth of her baby was a very important historical event. This thought must have been in her mind and in her heart for the past nine months. Who knows what the future will be like. These are the thoughts that are shared by all mothers-to-be. Mary was no exception! Many prophets of the old testament had written wonderful things about this woman who was chosen and destined to become the mother of God. Then all started when she was visited by the angel.  She was soon to marry Joseph the carpenter. Then, all of a sudden, a special baby was on the way. This was a big turning point not just in the life of Mary but also in the story of humanity.

Getting Ready for Jesus

JOHN THE FORERUNNER

According to the New Testament, John was getting everyone ready for an important person whom he described as greater than himself. This important person was Jesus. Sometimes we commonly refer to John as the forerunner of Jesus, since he was the one who announced Jesus’ coming. We find these words written in the Bible that show that some important person was about to arrive: Behold I shall send my messanger before you. He will prepare your way, prepare the way for the Lord and make his path straight. John the Baptist was the last of the prophets. He was the son of Elizabeth and Zachary. In the Bible there is the story of when John baptised Jesus in the waters of the River Jordan.

School Celebration 2014

Soon it will be School Celebration time at our school. As usual our Head of School has put pen to paper and came up with a play – panto style – in which all the school children will be taking part. There will be drama, dancing and singing and an occasional joke as well. This year we’re all off to a faraway Hawaiian island. The natives are in danger as the wicked black witch doctor is about to take all under his control. However things start to take a different route and his plans change quite a bit. There are little Hawaiian children, jolly pirates,  smart sailors and funny witches who, all together, form the ingredients for this sweet story.

Naturally there is a happy ending. If you want to know more make sure to come to our School Celebration which is going to be held on the 18th of December 2014 at 10.30 am. The show of the 18th is meant for parents and guests.
