Christmas in the Park - this Thursday 12am at school

At school we have been discussing Christmas and its true meaning.  We have discussed that Christmas is not simply about what we get, but more importantly about giving to others. The story below shows these values in a very real context.

We have all been very busy practising for 'Christmas in the Park' which will be held this Thursday.  Last Thursday when we were outside practising some songs we were very interested to see a vehicle drive slowly around the school block.  To our surprise the vehicle parked by the side of the road beside the tennis courts.  The children didn't let this phase them and continued practising their singing. As we watched a couple climbed out and started having a picnic while listening to the children singing!  In the true spirit of Christmas our Year 6 students carried over a plate of truffles that we had been making that morning and gave it to the couple to have with their picnic.  The children received some lovely feed-back on their singing, so we hope you are equally impressed with our traffic stopping performance on Thursday - We look forward to seeing your there.

I heard the children singing lots of Christmas songs today. What a treat it is going to be for the people in Waitahuna on Thursday. Well done children it sounds lovely. Your speakers outside are great.

An interested person.
