Christmas, Celebrations, Christingle and Choirs!

The End of the Term is upon us and Christmas is days away and what a great few last days we’ve had at St Giles School. We had the Music Lesson end of term concert.

Popular Pyjama Party

Again this year, leading up to Christmas, at the end of the school day there was an absence of parents collecting their children. School had finished but the day wasn’t over for the children.

This half term with all of the other Fund Raising events happening around Christmas we decided to do something just for the children at no cost – The return of The Pyjama Party, by popular demand! The popcorn, popcorn cones, drinks and cups were donated by members of Staff
