The annual Clydeview Party was a huge success again this year. 6th year pupils fundraise for the whole event through bonus ball competitions, the S1 Hallowe’en Party and bagpacking.
Luckily, Christopher Tyrrell, in 6th year, knows Santa’s mobile number, and helped by Marie McInerney, Joe Dempsey and Sarah Kane, he managed to persuade Santa, Mrs Claus and a couple of elves to pop in and hand out gifts to everyone. The whole room sang Jingle Bells and there was an excited yell as Santa walked in to sit in his big red chair.
Every pupil from Clydeview is teamed with pupils from OLHS, so anyone who was a bit unsure of the beardy man in the funny red costume had lots of big helpers. With plenty of party food, games and dancing later there were two bunches of very tired but incredibly happy pupils.
This is a truly special and memorable occasion for all of our pupils and is talked about long into the New Year.
