RM concert

The Grade 2 class at Robert Moore School, under the supervision of Ms. Richards and Mrs. Howell, presented a skit entitled “The Presents” yesterday before a packed house in the auditorium. When Santa got his pack stuck in the chimney, Mrs. Claus, the reindeer, an angel, and an assortment of Christmas characters all came to the rescue.

'Coffee House' a big hit

According to the organizers and everyone who attended, the Church of the Holy Spirit's first-ever “Coffee House” on Friday evening was a total success.

The interior of the building magically was transformed into a welcoming space, complete with small tables, “coffee bean candle” centerpieces, and the soft glow of colourful Christmas lights.
