Primary 5W Host A Heroes Assembly

Primary 5 hosted a full school assembly this morning on the theme of 'Heroes'.  Primary 5 displayed a lineout of superheroes and explained that we do not always have to think of a Hero as a 'Superhero'.  Their second lineout was of heroes in our daily lives that help us in many different ways such as a Paramedic, Teacher, PSNI Officer, Patrol Man, Firefighter and Doctor to name a few!  The children also watched a short video clip on Daniel in the Lions Den which displayed Daniel as a Biblical Hero for standing up for God.  The message given to the assembly was that we do not need to wear a cape or a uniform to be God's HERO ... we only need to LOVE God and LOVE others.  Primary 5 concluded their assembly with a performance of 'Everything I Am'.  Many of the children sang a solo and/or a duet.  Everyone performed superbly and were given a Friday off their Class Test!  What a treat!! The powerpoint used for this assembly is attached to this article also.

Thankyou Mr Wright

Today we had to say a sad farewell to Mr Wright who has been teaching football to our pupils for eight years. During a special assembly Mr McCambley asked every pupil who had been taught by Mr Wright to stand...and a hall with 400 pupils standing was quite a spectacle. We wish Mr Wright our best wishes as he moves into a new role, and hope he will be back to visit us soon.

Tree Damage

The storm caused quite a bit of damage to our wooded grounds and we did have one large tree down across the children’s pedestrian path which takes them home.

Thankfully, the tree which came down during Monday evening's storm was safely and quickly removed by the EA grounds men who were in school on Tuesday morning. The path is now totally accessible again. Thank you and well done!

We do anticipate that school will be open again tomorrow (Wednesday 18 Oct). This will be a normal full day with extra-curricular activities (Golf and half-Marathon) running to 4.00pm.

School Meals

School meals will operate as normal and indicated on the October Menu. The correct food will be served so the menu is correct!

Primary 6 Swimming

Waves Leisure Centre, Lurgan, have been in touch to announce that due to unforeseen circumstances the pool will be closed tomorrow therefore, we have cancelled Primary 6 swimming.

Inspector Smart (Theatre visit)

Wednesday 18 October sees Inspector Smart arriving in school for ‘The Greatest Rescue Ever!’. The theatre group will be staging this production sponsored by Holy Trinity Church of Ireland. Children will enjoy feet tapping songs and their hearts will be singing as they find out wonderful truths about King Jesus, and the Greatest rescue EVER!

The Round Pound

Please remember that the school can no longer accept the round pound coin. Wednesday sees the collection of dinner money after our Exceptional Closures so your help in this matter is very much appreciated.

Our School Canteen is not in a position to confirm dinner options for Wednesday as food deliveries have been cancelled. Therefore, at this stage, we can only state that a hot meal WILL BE served. After Wednesday a full menu will be published assuming that deliveries resume.

Thank you for your patience!
