Zal de Sint ook dit jaar SDS bezoeken?  De (Wo) Men in Black zijn de voorbije week al op school gespot maar iedereen is nog op zoek naar Sinterklaas!  De kinderen van SDS leggen de goedheiligman dit jaar extra in de watten en hebben heel wat verrassingen voor hem.  Misschien wil de Sint wil een nieuw mijter?  Of nieuwe wimpels voor de stoomboot?  Zou een schoorsteen op het dak Sinterklaas kunnen overtuigen om naar SDS te komen?

Wij hopen jullie allemaal op vrijdag 1 december te mogen verwelkomen en hopen van harte dat de Sint ook dit jaar langskomt  met allerlei lekkers !

De letter van de week is de ` uu `.
