Advent and Christmas Activities


When December arrives, St. Brendan's becomes a hive of activities to prepare for the celebration of Christmas.

Christmas is always celebrated through the arts in St. Brendan's.

Favourite annual activities include:

  • A Christmas concert in the school hall
  • Musical nativity plays
  • Carol singing in Sligo to raise money for Sligo Social Services 
  • A whole-school Christmas Art Day 
  • Advent assembly on 8th December
  • Collection for the Vincent de Paul Food Appeal
  • Visits to local cinema for a private Christmas movie showing for the whole school.
  • Trips to the theatre for a live Christmas show
  • Trips to local cafes for hot chocolate and a bun 
  • Walking trips to visit the Crib in Sligo Cathedral
  • Class visits to St. John's Hospital and Cregg House
  • Parents Association Fundraisers eg Design-a-Card scheme, craft fair, raffles etc
  • A free Christmas Annual presented to every child in the school

It's a jammed-packed schedule throughout December but our Christmas programme is a highly-valued and much enjoyed part life in St. Brendan's NS.
