A Christmas party was organised in Abbeyleix Further Education & Training Centre on December 18.
It was held for children and families living in the Direct Provision Centre in Abbeyleix.
The party was organised by the Student Council and staff. There was a variety of activities, games, music and fun to be had.
Hot food was very kindly provided for the families by Clelands in Abbeyleix and many thanks for their generosity.
Students and Staff also provided food. Santa, a very special guest arrived.
He was a massive hit with all the children and ensured each child received very special individual gifts.
Organisers said: “When we remember this Christmas party, it is not the presents that made it special, but the laughter, the feeling of love and the togetherness of friends and family from different cultures that made the occasion a day we won’t forget.”
