Christmas Disco!

(December 2015)

The Christmas Disco was a great success. There was great excitement when Santy came to visit the children. Although it was hard to catch them standing still, I managed to get a few photographs of the boys and girls during the Christmas Disco.

Army drills get us active




The pupils of Kiltealy impressed again this year with fantastic efforts going into Halloween costumes.

Ghosts and goblins, witches and werewolves, zombies and skeletons; were scattered throughout the group that traveled around the village.

We stopped off to see the children from the playschool in their costumes and they treated us to a song and nursery rhyme.

We continued down through the village to the carpark where our group photo was taken before making our way back to the school.
