Christmas Cards

Children at St Gabriel’s are designing their own Christmas cards. They are being sent off this week to be professionally printed. Parents will be informed of different options for purchasing prints of their children’s cards. 

Here’s Ms O Dowd’s class busy designing their cards!


St Gabriel’s Christmas Album

As we are not able to do a whole school Christmas show, this year we are recording an album of Christmas songs, sung by the children of St Gabriel’s. Each class are recording songs in pods, with Mr Whyte and Mr Donnelly helping out with music and production. Everyone is so excited! 

Release date and price will be available soon.
