Dear Parents and Carers,

 

Merry Christmas One and All

The staff of St. Gabriel’s would like to take this opportunity to wish everyone in our school community a very Happy and Holy Christmas. We thank you for your generosity and support over this last year and hope that everyone enjoys the festivities.

Nadolig Llawen bawb! We look forward to seeing everyone again in 2020!

Christmas Fayre – Friday December 13th

Our Christmas Fayre was a resounding success which was due to the dedication of the team of ‘Friends’ organising, prepping and leading on the day and also to the amazing support shown by everyone that attended the event. Many thanks to you all.

We are pleased to report that a total of £906 was raised – this will be used to continue upgrading our dining tables. J

 

Friends of St. Gabriel’s

If you were thinking of getting new uniform over the Christmas break, here’s the new link for the uniform embroidery service that provides a donation to our school funds with each purchase. https://myclothing.com/

 

Our week began with a theatre production of ‘A Christmas Carol.’ This experience was provided for all the pupils by the Friends of St. Gabriel’s – thank you for our early Christmas present!

Reception Applications – deadline 15th January

The deadline is rapidly approaching for Reception Applications for pupils who will be starting school in September 2020. As we are a Catholic School, the application is different to the Local Authority process and the forms are available from the school office and also on the school website. Please share this with wider family and friends.  www.stgabrielsrcprimary.org.uk
