Holy Family College is hosting the Drakensberg Boys’ Choir during their 2014 Noel Tour in the newly restored school hall. You will remember the hall burnt down in May 2013.  Restoration started in January 2014 and except for the delay caused by the metalworkers strike it has been going steadily since then.  It would be wonderful if you could support this function.

The "Christmas truce" is a term used to describe a series of unofficial cessations of hostilities that occurred along the Western Front during Christmas 1914. World War One had been raging for several months but German and Allied soldiers stepped out of their trenches, shook hands and agreed a truce so the dead could be buried.
