Christmas Post Box Opens for Business!

The School Christmas Post Box will be in operation from Monday 02 December until Wednesday 18 December.  During this time the children may post Christmas cards to their friends within the school. The Post Box operates from our Central Mall.

 Please make sure names are written clearly on the front of the cards along with the class to which they have to be delivered.

eg    Jonathan Woodshanks

                          P4 Mrs J  McElhinney

 There are now over 430 children in the school who will undoubtedly wish to send cards to their friends. Therefore, a huge number of cards go into the post box and sorting takes quite a while each morning. 

  As usual, any amount raised will go to The Royal Hospital for Sick Children, Belfast, so there will be a suggested donation of 50p to cover all cards posted by each child. 

  We thank you for your valued support.

Odd Socks Day 2019

Odd Socks Day

In conjunction with Children in Need today, it was fantastic to see all of the pupils wearing their odd socks in support of Anti-Bullying at the start of the week.

It was a great opportunity to encourage our pupils to express themselves and to celebrate their individuality and what makes them all unique!

The pupils took part in many fun activities throughout the week and have learnt the importance of standing up and speaking out when they know it’s the right thing to do. Most importantly, the pupils know that they have the power to make change happen and ensure that every pupil feels happy and safe both inside and outside school.

Primary 6 enjoy Robotics Day

On Tuesday, James from Sentinus came into school equipped with laptops and robots for the Primary 6 children to work with. The children were paired up and had to programme their robots to go as quickly as possible around a track.

The children thoroughly enjoyed this programming and look forward to using it again. Thank- you to James from Sentinus for such a brilliant STEM project.
