Today was our last assembly of the term and what an exciting assembly it was! We had just finished singing Jingle Bells when we had a wonderful surprise, Mrs MacLauchlan, Mrs Leeson and Mrs Fox appeared on the big screen and spoke to us all the way from India! We sang Jingle Bells to them again (Brumas seemed to like that) and then We Wish You a Merry Christmas.
Mrs MacLauchlan had left a letter with Mrs Dakin that she didn't want us to see until today so Mrs Dakin read it out to us. It was amazing news! Santa had asked Mrs MacLauchlan to let us know about some exciting presents that will be delivered in the New Year. A climbing wall for the Trim Trail, a Theatre for the playground and a new outdoor cabin for Class 7's playground.
Mrs MacLauchlan asked us to try and remember how lucky we are at Christmas here and to remember that there are children in India who won't have very much at all at Christmas. It was then time to say goodbye! Happy Christmas Mrs MacLauchlan, Mrs Leeson and Mrs Fox!
We then drew the raffle (please see the A-Frame for the winning numbers) - well done to the winners!
After a rousing version of When Santa got Stuck up the Chimney it was time to finish. Happy Christmas to all!
