St Nicholas House pupils were joined by Alway House and the middle school pupils from St David’s House as they sat down to a sumptuous Christmas Supper in the medieval Dining Hall.
With Mr Halpin as MC for the evening, there was a wonderful atmosphere amongst all the pupils and staff. St Nicholas pupils had a great time joining in the fun having made their own rather glamorous party hats in Craft Club.
Following the first two courses, St Nicholas pupils sang their version of ‘Real Love’, the song from the John Lewis Christmas advert, along with Percy the Penguin.
There was also the annual sprout-eating competition with Louis in Alway beating last year’s record by eating over 50 sprouts!
Mr Halpin brought his guitar and after several rousing Christmas carols, favourite hymns and songs from Les Mis, the evening came to an end with some very full tummies and much excitement in the lead-up to Christmas.
