Saturday 9th December Children from Scoil Mhuire NS are invited to the Schull Christmas Fair in the Harbour Hotel to play music and sing carols for all those present. 4th, 5th and 6th class will play the tin whistle but children from all classes are both welcome and encouraged to join in with the singing. The children are timetabled to perform from between 2.45pm and 3.45pm. Christmas Cake to be raffled also.
The Scoil Mhuire NS Parents’ Association’s Christmas Wish Tree will also be lit on Saturday 9th of December at 7pm outside the Bunratty Inn. A raffle ticket will be given to each child present at the event and one lucky child whose ticket will randomly be picked out will be awarded the honour of turning on the lights on the tree. A very special visitor along with his entourage is expected to visit during the event and there will be hot chocolate and treats for the children afterwards. All are welcome to come along to join in the festivities!
The concept of the Christmas Wish Tree is to remember a loved one who is not here, be they no longer with us, abroad or elsewhere for any reason. A light will shine on the Christmas wish tree at the top of the village throughout the Christmas season. Your intentions will be remembered at mass and service on Christmas Day. A gift card comes free with the light which costs €5. A list of those for whom the lights are dedicated to, will be posted on the tree. All proceeds go to Scoil Mhuire National School Parents’ Association and will be used for the benefit of the children. Cards are now on sale in various outlets throughout the village.
