Latest Laois Event: ‘Christmas Doors’ open wide at Mountrath Community School
Once again festive ‘Christmas Doors’ at Mountrath Community School open wide!
|The festive cheer continues to rolls out in Mountrath Community School as the annual Christmas doors competition took place this week. The organising Teacher Orla Donnelly said that it’s great to engage all the students, in an activity that creates so much fun and goodwill.
The winning class gets a takeaway from a local chipper. It is a wonderful incentive for the students. The Chaplain, Ms Anne Moore wanted to focus on the fragility of the Christ child born in a stable. The straw was a great addition for her festive door.
The Principal Ms K O’ Brien added that the great community spirit was really encouraging to see. The students really enjoyed the caretaker’s door, ‘Seamus and Tommy’, with a comical take on ‘don’t feed us, as we will bite’.
Mr Denis Boland, Deputy Principal, said that the array of Santa doors, nativity scenes and Christmas trees was so creative. And in the bleak midwinter, the hallways and corridors of MCS rang out glad tidings of joy and fun, and that’s what Christmas is all about.
