THREE SIXTH YEAR students and two teachers from St Michael’s College in Ballsbridge wanted do something to help raise awareness of the homeless this Christmas.

Shane O’Brien, David Brazil, Conor Igoe, David Wilson and David Sheridan had no money and little time but came up with an idea for a video.

They got family and friends to play the characters and music teacher, David Sheridan came up with an original song called Christmas Time. They filmed it during the midterm break in October, and edited it in their own time.

Teacher, David Wilson, told it is not about “making money, it’s about getting the message out there and spreading a positive message”.

So here it is, be warned, it will warm even the coldest of hearts out there:
