December


DNS crib
Rev Waugh and three representatives from each class were invited to the library to see the new crib and figures which Mr Howard has kindly donated to DNS.
Nigel spoke about the crib figures, a verse of 'Away in a Manger' was sung and everyone said the school prayer.
Nigel switched on the stable light and the star.
One of our parents, Wendy Dunne, kindly donated a 'Nativity' story book which is also on display near the crib.
Advent has begun!

Fourth Class trip to Bray
Fourth Class, their teacher and some adult helpers went by public bus to 'The Walking in a Winter Wonderland Christmas Tree Festival' in Christ Church Bray.
The children were fascinated by the very creative and interesting Christmas trees on display.


Delgany Christmas Market
Our Christmas Market was held on Saturday 9th December. There was a lovely festive feel to the day and thanks to a trojan amount of hard work by a lot of people the event was a great success!

Countdown to Christmas!
All classes and teachers are counting down the days and preparations are underway for our Carol Service in Christchurch Delgany on Thursday 21st December. Carols are being practised, lines learnt and prayers rehearsed.
It promises to be a very special evening and many say that this particular evening marks when Christmas truly begins!
Hope to see you there!

Katie Taylor
The staff and pupils of DNS were very excited to welcome 'Boxing Legend' Katie Taylor to our GP Room on Thursday 21st December. Our very own Tony O' Donoghue chatted to Katie asking her questions devised by the children like 'What was her best ever Santa present?' (Rhys, Junior Infants) and 'Does she like vegetables?' (James, Senior Infants). 
Katie kindly passed around her Olympic medal and showed off her World Title belt (it's VERY heavy!). We learned that Katie's favourite colour is gold and her family and her faith are very important to her.
We were inspired by Katie's humility and her passion for her sport.
We wish her well in 2018!
         
Santa visit!
We welcomed Santa and his helpers to DNS on the last day of term. Santa said that he was incredibly 'pushed for time' and wouldn't be staying long! He checked that the children were being good, left them a chocolate lolly and then hurried off back to his workshop!
