We held our Christmas concerts in St. Mary's Youth Centre on Thursday, December 20th and they were a great success. The girls and their teachers put a huge amount of effort into their performances and the hard work certainly paid off. Thanks to all the parents for coming to watch the concerts and for helping with organising costumes. Take a look at the photos below.
