The boys and girls from Lismullen NS had a very special Christmas visit today from the big man himself, Santa!!!
There was lots of excitement when the students got to the School this morning to see that Santa had set up a grotto in the playground to welcome all the boys and girls and have a socially distanced chat with the students in their pods. He also had a small gift of a selection box for each of the students to enjoy over Christmas.
Thank you Santa for coming to visit Lismullen NS and best of luck getting to all the boys and girls on Christmas Eve night, we hope the weather is good for you and the winds are strong!… READ MORE
