Christmas in SGS

Posted on : December 17, 2020

The festive season is upon us in SGS and the school has welcomed the festivities with open arms. The feel-good factor of Christmas has brought much needed diversion as well as cheer to what has been a difficult term for all. Christmas trees abounded in classrooms and corridors and the TY students decorated the doors of their classrooms for an in-house Christmas Door Competition. The Annual Carol Service was a virtual one this year and was broadcast on Thursday 17th and watched simultaneously by all the students in their own classrooms. It is available to watch on the school website and Facebook page. Thursday 17thalso saw SGS staff and students get decked out in their Christmas jumpers for charity. Everyone in the school donated €2 and, as well as Christmas jumpers, Santa hats and tinsel were on display. One 5th year student came to school in a complete Santa suit – beard and all! The teachers really got into the mood, wearing all sorts of Christmassy clothing, with Mr O’Malley sporting a very seasonal two-piece suit! €1,000 was raised and these funds will go to to Sligo Social Services along with the massive amount of food and other items donated to the Annual Food Collection by students, staff and friends of SGS. Thank you to all our staff and students for helping us make it safely through the term and we wish a happy and safe Christmas to all.  Photos of our Christmassy school can be viewed HERE
