Mount Carmel School - Christmas Fair

Amongst work supported by OPEN Ealing.
So another interesting experience today - being part of the Mount Carmel (School)  Christmas celebrations - their Christmas Fair, with Carols, Santa, and much more.

What was quite inspiring was how much this School is supported by the parents of the Children at the School, I gathered from Mandie the Guiding light behind OPEN's presence was that the school had flourished with help from the Diocese of Westminster and the enthusiasm of the local churches in Nortthfields.

What was then a largely Irish community now has pupils  from a wide variety of backgrounds and it was great to see the Children and parents all together untied in shared goals.

[Good to see that the School is above the national average too.]

I will say that the crowd were intent on keeping their Children happy and sales of crafts were minimal but a great bunch of people including Islamic Artist Samira Mian (who teaches at OPEN)

As the day started
Samira demonstrated her art
