On Thursday, we celebrated our amazing Winter Wonderland Christmas event !
The children first enjoyed a Christmas movie in the morning before going home at noon, they then returned in the evening for all of our fun festivities !
Our hosts for the evening were Nicola and Fanny, who did a great job introducing the evening.
First up were some Christmas carols performed by each class. The Kindergarten classes sang ‘Santa Claus is coming to town’, followed by Pre-School with ‘Snowflakes Falling from the Sky’, next was our adorable toddlers doing the ‘Reindeer Hokey Pokey’ and finally our Pre-K students with ‘Rudolph the Red-nosed Reindeer’.
The children have been practicing the carols for weeks and they really put in a lot of hard work. They were also wearing some beautiful costumes to match our ‘Winter Wonderland’ theme.
On top of the carols by our students, our foreign teachers and Doreen also performed a play. It was called ‘A Christmas Dream’ and told a story of a young girl named Lucy whose biggest wish was to go to the North Pole to meet Santa !
The children really enjoyed the performance and even got to see Santa Claus himself !
Next it was time for our Christmas Tree Lighting ceremony ! All of the children gathered outside !
Finally, it was time to meet Santa Claus ! Each child received a present and even had the opportunity to take pictures with Santa.
we even got to enjoy a very special dance performed by our Chinese teachers ! Some of our students also had a talent prepared for our mini talent show ! Well done to all students for their time and effort. It was a great performance !
Outside is where we hosted our ‘Winter Wonderland Charity Bazaar’.
We had many different stalls selling food and treats like warm heart snacks, pizza, irresistible deserts and candied fruit. We had stalls with cute christmas accessories, magic balloons and face painting, not to mention some exciting games like ‘Throw and Win’, ‘The Giant Snowglobe’ and our ‘Wintery Slip n’ Slide’. There really was so many cool things to do and wonderful items to buy.
Most importantly of all, Christmas is a time for giving and with this in mind, all the money raised from our stands at the Charity Bazaar was donated to a local children’s hospital.
In this way our school is able to spread some Christmas cheer to people who really need it this year !
In the week leading up to Christmas, we also made many Christmas crafts and even decorated some gingerbread treats. We had our picture day where each student had a lovely picture taken of them in their festive wear.
There have been a lot of busy little elves working their socks off all week to make sure it was going to be a very magical Winter Wonderland so well done to all of our lovely teachers !
Also a big thank you to all parents and family members who joined us for our event and contributed to such a great cause.
Everybody had a great evening filled with laughter and cheer and lots of money was raised for our charity ! What a fantastic way to celebrate Christmas ! Merry Christmas Everyone !
