Week 16 in Merchiston Juniors
19th December, 2017
Last week was the final week in Merchiston Juniors before the Christmas Break. We enjoyed taking part in Christmas Jumper Day and raising money for the Forth One Kids Christmas Appeal, celebrating an early Christmas with all our friends and finally performing at St Cuthbert’s Church, Colinton, before we headed back to our families for the Christmas Holidays.
We wish everyone a very Merry Christmas and we look forward to what is to come in 2018.
