Leswalt Primary parent council organised the first ever Santa Dash round the streets of Leswalt today – all to raise funds for school based activities. This event was supported by lots of Santas of all shapes and sizes from Leswalt, Kirkcolm, Stranraer – and even Drummore! All were given a Santa hat and dashed round a route in the village to the Christmas tunes being played by Jacky Robinson and Jill Millar. It was even snowing at the start too – just to add to the festive atmosphere!
On return to the hall, mulled wine, mince pies and cakes were provided to all the Santas. Medals were given out to all and this kicked of the festive season in style for Leswalt community.
Many thanks to Leswalt Stores for sponsoring this event and providing all the hats and medals for competitors.
The final fundraising total will be calculated once all donations are in.
On the first day of December, we opened our advent calendars and kicked off the the festive season with some input from the Scripture Union and “Christmas Unwrapped!”
Owain Evans joined our class to lead P5-7 through fun activities such as the Christmas Quiz, and and excerpt from “The Star” movie. In groups we tried some code breaking activities to crack the Christmas code.
We all went on to “Shine a light on Christmas” by making our own beeswax Christmas candles.
It was a fun filled festive morning which reminded us all of the true meaning of Christmas.
