As Christmas gets closer Guildhouse School is getting quieter as many of our students begin heading home to spend the holidays with their families. To begin of the festive season and also celebrate completing another term here at Guildhouse School we lined up lots of fun activities.
Before we explore the fun things that happen around the school, our Head Teacher Carmel O’Dolan shares a holiday message:
How We Celebrate At Guildhouse
Here at Guildhouse School we have tried to recreate a traditional British Christmas experience for our students. This gives them the chance to enjoy an early Christmas with their friends and school community, whilst celebrating their Autumn term accomplishments.
In order to replicate that authentic Christmas feeling, we filled December with lots of festive activities, leaving Guildhouse School abuzz with Christmas cheer:
Thursday 7th December: Christmas is a time for giving and that is why we ran a charity bake sale. Our student council baked some sweet treats to sell to their peers and staff around the school in order to raise money for a good cause this Christmas.
Thursday 7th December: This an annually occurring charity initiative from ‘Save the Children’. Every year individuals, schools and organisations show their support by dressing in their silliest, ugliest or most jolly Christmas outfit. This year our most festively dressed student even bagged themselves a prize!
Thursday 7th December: By the time the final event of the day rolls around you’ll be dressed to impress and filled to the brim with bake goods. Could there be anything better conclusion to the day than a Music Show? Student Council have been working hard to organise this after school event, which took place at Premier House. They provided food, a chance for students to chat and socialise with friends and entertainment in the form of Mean Girls inspired dance routine.
Tuesday 12th December: Our Christmas Cultural day was a celebration of Christmas traditions around the world. Students banded together to share how Christmas is celebrated within their culture, sharing different foods, drinks and styles with one another. They had a great time spreading the Christmas joy sharing their holiday traditions with their friends.
