Wednesday 11th December – Christmas Concert

Friday 13th December – Last Day of School (noon finish)

 

 

From the Year 5s
As part of their inquiry into marketplaces, the Year 5 students will be hosting a Christmas Market for the school on Thursday 12th December in the school hall. They will be selling handmade Christmas craft and Christmas-themed food and drink items.
 
Students are invited to bring along $80-100 to shop. We also encourage them to attend the market with a reusable shopping bag and an empty snack container for any food items they may purchase.
 
All profits from the day will go to support ImpactHK. This is a local charity that supports the homeless community with kindness and empowering them for change. Children from Beacon Hill have supported ImpactHK in the past through kindness walks and donations from one of the House Days.
