More fun from December 2019

Carol Service 2019

Our Carol Service is always a special time in St Pius X BNS, but this year topped the charts! An amazing choir was backed up by soloists, musical performers, narrators and even a teacher band! All of which made the festive celebrations the most memorable to date. At the Senior Carol Service, we also got a chance to pay tribute as a community to Mr. Gaynor on his retirement. The school's chairperson, Ronan McMahon paid tribute to Mr. G for all his hard work in St. Pius X BNS over the last 21 years. A specially commissioned poem from 6th class was read and Mr Gaynor's favourite carol, Auld Lang Syne was sung by the choir. Mr. G even accompanied them on his accordion as they sang!

Practice makes perfect!

Pictured is the calm before the storm as our "in-house band" tune up ahead of Thursday's Carol Service. The hall as you can see is also resplendent in the amazing art of our classes!

SVP Thanks

At the busiest part of the year, St Pius X BNS families still found time to think of others and donate to our annual SVP appeal. The letter speaks for itself and calls to mind others who are less fortunate at this special time. Huge thanks again to Mr. Dillon and his class for working at this project for the last number of weeks.

No, Mr. Coyle hasn't become obsessed with Food Dudes, it is in fact Buddy the Elf from Ms. Stewart's class! He's been keeping an eye on the school from the office and reporting back to the North Pole.

The Mighty Quinn Returns!

Former Principal of St. Pius X BNS, Michael Quinn, returned to the school to wish Mr. Gaynor bon voyage on his upcoming retirement. Mr. Quinn was principal of St. Pius X BNS from 1998 - 2002.

Santa Visits St. Pius

Lots of excitement when Santa called to St Pius X. Pictured are Ms Robinson's class in awe at the sight of the great man!! While Mr Kealy's took it lying down. Santa also had time to wish Mr. Gaynor a happy retirement and tell him he was on the "good" Deputy Principal list!
