On Wednesday 16th December 2015 we had a Christmas Ceilidh House at the hall for our school play. It was great fun and there were good jokes like, ‘What is the best present in the world? A broken drum, you just can’t beat it!’
We told stories called ‘The Raven’ and ‘The Snowman’. Eigg Ceilidh Band played a Virginia Reel and we danced. The Eigg Singing Group sang ‘Mistletoe’, ‘We shall Overcome’ and a reindeer calling song. Mrs Ib read ‘Chocolate Cake’ and Eigg Primary School performed ‘The Star Watchers Journey.’ Maise played ‘Fairy Lullaby’ and Maggie sang’ Ha mi Skith.’ Everyone sang carols and we had mulled wine and mince pies.
On Thursday 17th December we had a Christmas lunch at school. We had: chicken and gravy that Mrs Boden prepared and brought in, cabbage, potatoes, leeks and onions that we grew in our garden, huge parsnips that Mrs Hollands brought in from her garden and some pigs in blankets which Maggie made. It was all delicious!!! It was so good I had three helpings and ice cream and jelly for pudding.
As part of our enterprise project we made Christmas cards in art and entered the Lochaber Housing Christmas card competition. Although we didn’t win we did get a commendation and £25 for the school. We had our pictures made into cards to sell. We made quite a lot of money.
Last but not least Mrs Ib retires this term and we would like to thank her for teaching us and being our Head. We hope she is very busy in her retirement and has a happy time.
Merry Christmas everyone from Eigg Primary School!
