I would like to take this opportunity to wish pupils, parents and friends of Langold Dyscarr a very Happy Christmas. We have had a wonderful term with lots of opportunities to celebrate the achievements of the children. The nativity plays were beautiful with so many children taking part and our choir represented the school very well indeed at a number of festive events. Christmas at Langold is always a really special time and one of the highlights was our Christmas dinner day. The PTA did a fabulous job of decorating the halls to create a special atmosphere and there were lots of adults on hand to wait on the children. As ever, the PTA have done a superb job to make our school feel special at Christmas – they decorated throughout the school, organised a mountain of nativity costumes and ran a raffle at the same time. I don’t know what we would do without them.
I also appreciate the generosity and support we get from parents. I know that it means a great deal to the children to see family members present at our events and Langold certainly does this in style. You will be pleased to hear that we raised around £550 from the sale of tickets from the nativity plays which we will use to buy rewards and treats for the children. Thank you very much indeed.
Now that the parties and festivities are over in school I look forward to seeing all the children again in January – I am sure that every one of them will get a visit from Santa for being good all year!
Wishing you a Happy Christmas and a prosperous New Year.
