OBS Wrapping Paper - from Tuesday, 10th December 2013
We are pleased to announce that the first ever Oporto British School Wrapping Paper will be available from Tuesday, 10th December 2013. Every child in the Primary Section has had the opportunity to contribute at least one Christmas illustration and every image that was submitted has been included in the final designs. We will be selling the wrapping paper in rolls of seven sheets, which includes every design done by the children of the Primary Section. Not only is this a fantastic opportunity to promote Art and encourage the children but all profits from the sales will be going to charity.
You can buy the Christmas wrapping paper through your child's Form teacher by writing a note requesting the number of rolls (please include payment), or after school where it can be purchased close to the entrance. Each roll of 7 sheets will cost €5.00.

Tree Lighting Ceremony - Tuesday 03rd December, 4.30pm
The PTA will be hosting their annual Tree Lighting Ceremony on Tuesday 03rd December. This event will be held in the Teage Hall from 3:40pm to 5pm; the actual tree lighting will take place around 4:30pm. A pupil will be selected for this honour. There will also be an official lighting of an outside tree, arranged and decorated by a Primary Art Club. During this ceremony the PTA will be serving wine, soft drinks and seasonal snacks. There will also be a short musical recital from some of the OBS pupils.
The PTA have asked that any parent wishing to help prepare the Teage Hall, including dressing the tree should arrive around 2:00pm. Also, any parent wishing to donate any desert or snack for this event should deliver it to the school for 1:30pm; Vera Silva, Front Office will be able to collect any donations. It would also be helpful for the PTA to have an idea how many parents are willing to help at this event. They request that, if possible, you email Elisabeth Martorell (email@example.com) of your intention to assist.
We hope to see you at this special Christmas event that will again allow the whole of the OBS community to come together.
