Christmas Novena – Day 4 – 18th December

God’s son in a manger,
Can anything be stranger?
A truly odd place for a baby to sleep.

A feeding trough for a cow or a sheep!

Christmas Novena – Day 3 – 17th December

A dirty stable with mouldy hay
‘Twas a dismal place to end the day.
Of simple comforts there was a dearth
And no wise midwife to help give birth.

Christmas Novena – Day 2 – 16th December

Now the trip to Bethlehem was long and tiring.
The poor old donkey was sure perspiring.
‘Twas a nasty burden upon their backs
That compulsion to pay a Roman tax!

Christmas Novena – Day 1 – 15th December

An angel called to Mary one day.
“You will have a baby,” she heard him say,
Now not yet married was Mary – however
The obedient girl just said, “Whatever.”

School Celebration 2016

Preparations are in full swing for our School Celebration 2016!  This time we are going back to the traditional nativity play – but the story was given a twist so that the audience will remain transfixed.  The main character is a sweet little donkey and his pride for having been chosen to carry the holy mother on her way to Betlehem and his vision of the future when Jesus will, once again, choose this humble means of transport for his entry into Jerusalem!  This time besides the usual characters, we shall be having little mice, twinkling stars, cute angels and exploding gifts all dancing happily to the bluttering beat of the Baa Band!  The usual funny moments involving other members of the staff will not be given a miss!  All parents and guardians are kindly asked to keep the 16th of December free so that they all will be able to join us in this joyful annual celebration – starting at 11.00.  The School Administration will then give out prizes to the students who distinguished themselves in various aspects of the school life.
