Advent

By Katie Smith (J6R)

Advent is a time when we count down the days to Christmas and light a candle every Sunday, waiting to welcome God’s son, Jesus.

A Cosy Christmas at Alex

Our special Christmas video will be sent to you by video link on Thursday, December 16th at 7 pm. The girls and their teachers have worked so hard rehearsing and recording the show.

Well done to Emily Sexton and Saoirse Jones in J6R and Emily Dempsey and Robyn Sharpe in J3W for having their images picked for the front and back cover of the video.

Tennis Success!

Well done to Alina O’ Connor in J3W. Alina had great success at the David Lloyd’s All-Star National Team Finals for tennis in the UK last weekend. Over 1400 girls and boys across three age groups (U8, U9 and U10) originally entered the competition.  

Alina competed at U8 level and, together with her doubles partner, Ross, finished in third place in the doubles (after winning the semi-final play-off). 

We are all very proud of Alina!
