You are invited to our…

SAINT MARTIN’S DAY LANTERN FESTIVAL

MONDAY 11TH NOVEMBER 2019 AT 5PM

Before the festival come along to the Winter Café at 3.30pm in the Hall hosted by Class 4/5.

Bring your pennies for homemade hot soup, rolls, cakes, samosas and warm drinks.

All proceeds to Class 4/5’s residential trip next year.

Martin joined the Roman Army at his father’s behest and, though a reluctant soldier, rose to the rank of Tribune within three years. He is remembered as the one who cut his cloak in half in order to clothe a cold and hungry beggar. After this act of charity he dreamt that he saw Christ wearing the half – cloak.

Martin left the army and went to Poitiers to become the disciple of Bishop Hilary. Although Martin would have preferred a quiet and humble life, the people of Tours wanted him to be their Bishop and had to trick him to get him into the cathedral to be consecrated. One story tells that he hid in a goose shed and the people came with their lanterns to find him.

When we are all gathered in the story circle, Class 2/3 will perform a German play about St Martin. This means that the performance space will need to be clear. We will be providing extra seating at the front for the children. Please follow the directions you are given on the night so that we can enjoy the event without long delays.

IF YOU USE THE TOP CAR PARKS PLEASE TAKE GREAT CARE IF TRYING TO DRIVE AWAY WHILE CHILDREN ARE STILL COMING DOWN FROM THE LAND

IN THE EVENT OF BAD WEATHER THE FESTIVAL WILL BE HELD IN THE HALL.

We look forward to seeing you there.

Dear Iona Community,

Please take part in this school wide fundraising event.

SMALL CHANGE FOR BIG CHANGE!

What to do-

Collect any loose change from now until the Advent Fayre in a jar at home, 

get the whole family involved, or work colleagues.

On the day of the Advent Fayre, bring your change to me (I will be wheeling  the big jar around the school) and we will pour the change into the jar.

There will be an opportunity to guess – 

THE TOTAL AMOUNT OF MONEY IN THE JAR

and 

THE TOTAL WEIGHT OF THE JAR AND MONEY 

Prizes will be given for the closest estimates.

The proceeds will go towards buying stock for our School Community Shop.

Thank you in advance for your anticipated enthusiasm and participation.
