 Christmas Jumper Day


Year 3 donned their Christmas jumpers to mark Christmas Jumper Day on Friday 11th December. This year, we collected donations in support of the Christmas Family Appeal organised by the Education Authority.  This money will be used by St. Vincent de Paul and The Salvation Army to help many families this Christmas.  

We designed our own Christmas jumpers!
