KOTA KINABALU – Over 200 children attended the annual pre-Christmas party organised by the Sacred Heart Cathedral Parish here on 18 Dec 2016.
As soon as the registration was done, the children (3-13 yrs) were given a nativity scene to colour. These were then posted on the makeshift walls for all to see.
The children were divided into 10 groups of 30 each by colour.
The facilitators were drawn from the Bahasa Malaysia Sunday School, English Rite of Christian Initiation, St Francis Kindergarten teachers and some volunteers.
After the Christmas Zumba, Father Joshua Liew had a Christmas storytelling session with the children.
Two games were played: (1) Christmas Tree Design (won by Light Green with Pink and Purple as runners up); and (2) Balloon game (won by Yellow with Blue as runner up).
Archbishop John Wong and Jason Joenoi (parish pastoral council chairman) graced the event and posed for some shots with the different groups before the children got their gifts.
