Fantastic support for children’s Christmas concerts

MAY I, through your columns, express my sincere thanks for all the support from all the parents, grandparents, ex-pupils and the community who attended our Christmas concerts last Wednesday, Thursday and Friday evenings as well as Friday morning.

The nursery children performed The Astronaut’s Christmas Story, P1/2 Aladdin’s First Christmas , P3/4/5 The Egyptians and P5/6/7 Puss in Boots.

It was a packed house at every concert. The children were excellent and we are all very proud of all of them.

The total amount raised from the nursery, P1/2, P3/4 and P5/7 concerts and raffles was £1,011, an excellent amount. Thank you to all who donated to the raffle. There were excellent prizes.

The end-of-term service collection in Canonbie church raised £60. School staff added to the church collection in lieu of sending each other cards. The money will be sent to CFM’s Cash for Kids charity which was the P5/6/7 choice.

Children from Cumbria and south-west Scotland benefit from this. Thank you to all who contributed.

Congratulations to the P5/6/7 class which reached the final of the Xmas Factor carol concert at Gretna Gateway recently. They sang God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen and sang it beautifully.

Thank you to all the people who voted for Canonbie primary in order for the choir to reach the final five. There were votes on line from all over the world.

I must say a great big thank you to all the staff for their dedication and commitment and to the parents, grandparents and the community for all their support.

Also a great big thank you to all the children for their hard work.

On behalf of everyone at Canonbie primary school and Canonbie nursery may I wish you all a Merry Christmas and best wishes for 2013.
