Parent-Guardian Teacher meetings 15-16 G K W

Hello Everyone
This year’s individual parent teacher meetings have been scheduled for Wednesday November 25th and Thursday November 26th. These meetings are for all classes from Senior Infants to 6th class. Junior Infant meetings will take place in February when the children have settled into school. Infant children will go home as normal on these days and children from 1st to 6th will go home at 14.05 on both of these days.

These professional meetings are for adults. It is important, therefore that children, especially pre-school children, are taken care of outside of school for the duration.

You will receive a time allocation of 10 minutes. Please try to be  on time and to schedule a future meeting if more time is needed to discuss specific concerns. As always, we are happy to meet with and involve parents in the life of our school. If, throughout the year, you need to pass on information about a small matter, you are welcome to mention it from 08.40-08.50 in the morning or directly after school on collection. If you need to schedule a longer meeting please talk to Judy and she will help you arrange it.
We are looking forward to seeing all of you.
Sally

Here are the words for the songs in the presentation.

They Came to a Christmas Party

Long time ago and miles away

On a night so clear

Shepherds came to see a child

At the end of a long hard year

 

Chorus:

They came to a Christmas party

They came to dance and sing

They came to see the wonder of

The newborn heavenly King

 

Along the lonely winding road

Three Kings came to call,

Trav’lling from a distant land

Just to find a lowly stall

 

Chorus: They came to a Christmas Party…

 

Now some they came to tell their name

In Bethlehem that day,

Some came seeking peace on earth

In the place where a baby lay

 

Chorus: (x2) They came to a Christmas party…

 

EVERYONE’S ASLEEP

Everyone’s asleep in the night so deep

Everyone’s asleep tonight

Children in their beds rest their weary heads

Everyone’s asleep tonight

 

Donkey’s in the straw, Can you hear him snore?

Everyones asleep tonight

Not a sound is heard from a mouse or bird

Everyone’s asleep tonight

 

But coming down the road

The long and silent road

Strangers come to Bethlehem

They’ve travelled all the day

A long and tiring way

Who will find a place for them?

 

Lights are all turned down in the darkened town

Everyone’s asleep tonight

Theres no room anywhere, not a bed to spare

Everyones asleep tonight

 

Everyone’s asleep, everyones asleep

Everyone’s asleep tonight  sshhhhhhh

 

Something Happened to the Light

 

Over the hills long time ago,

Shepherds and their sheep lay low

Midnight came a light did shine

Bright as the light from a neon sign

 

Chorus:

Something happened to the light

Should be dark but it turned out bright

Never seen a stranger sight

Looks like day….but it should be night

 

Angels came and said to them

“You gotta go to Bethlehem!”

They flew up into the sky

Shepherds could not believe their eyes!

 

Chorus: Something happened to ….

 

Shepherds travelled high and low

Wond’ring where the light would go

Travelled up and travelled down

Til they came to a little town

 

Chorus: Something happened…

 

Still their journey led them on

All the time that light it shone

Over an inn it seemed to hang

At the door all the shepherds sang

Final Chorus:

Something happened to the light

should be dark but it turned out bright

Never seen a stranger sight

Looks like day…but it should be night X2 

Dont know how it shines so bright

Tell the truth it gave me a fright

Looks like day…..but it should be night

 

Three Kings from the East

Three Kings from the East

Sat at a late night feast

Saw a star and wondered why

It shone and never ceased

 

Chorus:

A long, long way to go

Through the valleys high and low

And a biting wind did blow

Such a long, long way to go

 

They left their wine and bread

Followed the star instead

Rode their camels through the night

‘Til they came to a cattle shed

 

Chorus: A long, long way to go….

 

They saw the star shine down

Over Bethlehem town

On a manger filled with straw

And cattle all around

 

Chorus: A long, long way to go

 

They stood before an inn

To knock they did begin

Knocked three times…

And three times more…

Just to waken those within

 

Chorus: A long, long way to go x1

Shine Away

Chorus:

Let it shine ____, Let it shine ____,

Let it shine, let it shine, ooh let it shine,

Let it shine, let it shine, ooh let it shine.

 

There’s a bright light shining in the world tonight

All your fears will vanish in the morning light,

There’s a new horizon, there’s a brand new day,

A brighter future and it’s on the way

 

May all the love in the world,

Come shining through,

All the dark clouds disappear from view,

Let the light in your heart shine on,

All you do and say,

Let it shine, ooh, shine away

Chorus x 1

There’s a new beginning in the world tonight,

There’s a dawn breaking and the future’s bright,

May we each find blessing now its Christmas time,

Through all our lives may the good light shine

 

May all the love (twice)

…Shine away, shine away
