Short Street - Activities

Christmas Celebration 2013
At Mongrace Short Street Christmas was celebrated keeping the spirit of "give and forgive" in mind. One week prior to Christmas children made Christmas crafts, like stars, stockings etc. On 20th Dec 2014, Children and teachers gathered in the beautifully decorated garden.

The tiny tots sang carols along with their teachers and the whole school echoed with their joyous voices. The students attired as Santa Claus attracted the attention of the audience.

Children sang "Jingle Bells" in a festive mood and danced to the numbers like "We wish you a Merry Christmas" etc.

Later the tiny angels learnt to share their joy with the less priviledged ones who were given warm jackets as gifts.
