Mini Christmas puddings on a stick, were popular treats. Christmas hamper winners included Kevin Zischke, Donna Sheales,Sandy Clavis while the signed Confro raffle of a signed Cowbys jeresy was won by Shiralee Critchley.The P&Fcontinued the tradition of sharing little Christmas puddings with supporters before the students presented the Christmas story. While Secondary students narrated the story, Primary and Blackthorn Kindy Kids involved in acting out the scenes of the story, before a Choir of students led the singing of songs relating to the story. Popular songs for the evening were Go Tell It On The Mountain , Sally Palmer's beautiful rendtition of O Holy Night,Angels We Have Heard on High and the always loved Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer(with all the echoes of course).

Year 4 and 5 students tested their prototype rockets with mixed success. The rockets were powered by the volatile mixture of vinegar and bi-carb. There was a lot of fizzing and excited students as they tested to see whose rocket would go the furtherest.
