On Monday evening it was our Advent Festival, marking the time when we begin to look forward to the coming of the Christmas Light.

In the dark stillness of the evening, children lit a candle to the sound of gentle singing and music and placed it in a spiral. Parents commented on what a moving festival it was.

Iona School’s Advent Fayre was a resounding success on Saturday! Everyone commented on what a special day it was and a lot of fun was had by all!

It’s amazing what the magical combination of parent power and staff commitment can achieve and this was reflected in the feel-good atmosphere of the day and the fantastic total raised for the school which was £ £6,009.27!

Thank you-thank you-thank you to everyone involved-you have been amazing and to everyone for coming along and supporting the event. We look forward to doing it all again next year:)
