Christmas party, 2017, Friday 15th December

December 11, 2017 § Leave a comment

Hi everyone,

Our final activity for the year is our Christmas party. If you are able to bring a  festive dish to share, that would be great. There will be games, a pinata, Kris Kringle and  lots of fun to be had.

 

 

Finally, thank you to each of you, for helping to make each activity day a time  where we can all relax & enjoy the company of like-minded mothers, where our children can enjoy informal activities, build lasting friendships and be introduced to new ideas and new opportunities to grow in holiness, wisdom and knowledge.  It has been a year of great blessings.

I hope you can make it to our final activity day, and I hope that Christmas brings you and yours great joy.

Irish dancing activity, Friday 1st of December

November 28, 2017 § 1 Comment

Hi everyone,

This week  the very talented Emily will be teaching the children Irish dancing. She asks that the children wear light and loose fitting clothes so that they can move around with ease.  Also there will be a hard shoe dancing class for the boys,  so if it is possible, please have your boys wear dress shoes.

 

Looking forward to seeing you there, God Bless,

Trash and Treasure activity 2017, Friday November 17

November 12, 2017 § Leave a comment

Hi everyone,

This week Kelly has come up with the great idea that we hold a trash and treasure market, with all proceeds going to the charity, Mary’s Meals.

 

Trash and Treasure: 100% goes to Mary’s Meals.

 

Everyone could bring a number of items they no longer want, put a fair price on them and sit them on a table. We will leave a container on each table and people can buy the items, placing the money in the container. So essentially, we are donating unwanted goods. If an item doesn’t sell the owner just takes it home again.  What a great way to declutter before Christmas, score yourself a bargain and help people in need!

We will also organise a couple of games for the kids afterwards, if time permits.

This is certainly something we’ve never done before.

Looking forward to seeing you there,

Christina.

Leather work activity, Friday 3rd of November

Hi everyone,

This week we will step back in time to make an ancient style drawstring leather pouch for carrying treasures such as rosaries or coins. Students will use a combination of upholstery leather and vegetable tanned leather for the project. Suitable for all ages young and old. There will also be an opportunity to try out some more advanced leather stamping techniques which older students will enjoy as well. Emma.

 

 

 

Looking forward to seeing you there, God Bless,

Grass/sprout heads activity day, Friday 20th October

October 8, 2017 § 2 Comments

Hi everyone,

This week Rebecca will be making grass/sprout heads with the children. It sounds like a lot of fun especially because these will start growing quickly in this lovely spring weather.  She asked me to request that if the mums have any old stockings then could they please bring them along. Also if anyone has a spare glue gun, that would come in handy too.

Hope to see you there.

Hi Everyone,

This week, John and Sam will give us a presentation on composting and worm farming.  If you want any of your children to start their own worm farm then please bring an empty ice cream container.  The worms and bedding for the worms will be provided, long with some handouts on care of worms and how to compost.

I hope you can make it along – it should be a great day.
See you there,

Christina
