18th November 2011 - Final preparations for the Christmas Fair

Christmas Fair Raffle
Every child in the school have received a book of tickets this week. Parents/guardians are under no obligation to buy these tickets. Please return counterfoils and money or unsold tickets to the class teacher as soon as possible.  Tickets are €2 each or €10 for a book of 6 tickets.  Good luck in the draw and Thank You!

Christmas Cards & Calendars
This year the children have produced beautiful drawings for our new Christmas Cards.  There will be one card type per class which will include drawings from all the children.   These cards will be for sale on the day of the fair only.  We have pre-ordered a limited supply of cards & calendars this year and they will be sold at the fair on a first come, first served basis. We will not be taking orders for cards & calendars this year.

Donating items for the Christmas Fair
Due to demand, we have allocated some extra evening slots for dropping off donations for the Christmas Fair.  These will replace the advertised daytime collections. The new times are Monday – Thursday evenings 7pm – 8pm.  Thanks to all of you who have generously donated items to date. We are delighted to receive donations of Books, unwanted gifts, DVD’s, Computer Games, Toys in good working order and of course Bottles of Wine, Spirits etc for the Bottle Stall.

Final preparations for the Christmas Fair
We have a wonderful day lined up on the 27th for all the family to enjoy.  The Christmas Fair is open to all members of your family and to the wider community.  Please feel free to bring along Grandparents, Aunties, Uncles etc to have a browse at the stalls and to enjoy some festive entertainment.  Our very popular Cafe will return this year and there will be a few new additions to the fair.  We have an absolutely fantastic selection of prizes lined up for the Wheel of Fortune, a Festive Craft Stall and lots to keep the Children entertained.  Santa will be visiting the school and is returning to his cosy grotto again this year; he has mentioned that he is looking forward to meeting all of the St Patricks children again this year.
We still need volunteers to help out on both the day of the fair and with the set-up.  So if you have any time free to help us out please do get in touch 086 3845931 or 087 4187253. We on the Christmas Fair Committee really can’t do it all without the wonderful support that we receive from the parent body.
