Christmas is in the air!

Ms Audrey’s children enjoyed preparing Christmas crafts to take home with them and share them with their family. Most of them were made out of recycled material. They prepared a Christmas tree out of recycled toilet rolls and used up decorations.  A Christmas card was made out of carton plates, while a crib was created with recycled ice cream sticks.  Other crafts like Rudolf the Reindeer, a Santa’s hat and a Christmas Star embellished with wadding were worked on recycled cereal boxes.

The 8th of December – The Feast of the Immaculate Conception

This is one of the most important feasts of Our Lady. God loves us so much that he wanted his own Son to come down from heaven and live amongst us. In order to do so Jesus needed a mother. The chosen woman had to be a very special person, completely without any sin. Mary of Nazareth was the lucky one. This feast reminds us that Mary was without sin from the very first moments of her life. This is a  unique privilege that only belongs to Mary of Nazareth.

Let us all praise our holy mother and pray so that she helps us in all our difficulties and dangers.  The statue of Our Lady in our school yard is there to remind everyone about our duty to honour and love Holy Mary.
