Easter Bunny Makes His Annual Appearance

The Easter Bunny made his annual appearance in Waringstown Primary School along with a selection of goodies and treats for our competition prizes.

The boys and girls and staff all loved spending some time with the Easter Bunny in a fun filled, egg-cellent assembly.

Have a lovely Easter break.

 

**NON-UNIFORM DAY ON FRIDAY 23 MARCH 2018**

Friday 23 March 2018 is a non-uniform day for all classes with a suggested donation of £1.00.  This non-uniform day is hoped to raise enough money for our school to donate towards the training of a new guide dog within the Guide Dogs NI organisation.

Colouring In Competition Results Are Almost In!!!

We have had a fantastic response for our colouring in competition.  Easter Bunny will have a difficult job choosing the winners from each class … poor Easter Bunny!!
 
All the entries are outstanding!!  Well done to all who entered.
 
There will be a special prize award ceremony on Friday where the winners will be announced for all the competitions with a “Special Visitor” giving out the prizes!!
 
Many thanks once again for your continued support.
 

World Book Day 2018

Waringstown Primary School had a terrific response to the World Book Day this year once again.  The children in the Foundation Stage and Key Stage One enjoyed dressing up as favourite characters whilst the remainder of the school were engaged in World Book Day activities in their respective classes.

Take a look through our gallery to see how we got on:

Waringstown Primary School Have A Visit From 'Alex The Guide Dog'

The whole school came together on Wednesday 07 March for a very special Morning Assembly. Mrs June Best from 'Guide Dogs' was accompanied by her friend (and volunteer with the guide Dogs organisation) Mrs Michele Hutchinson. Mrs Best had her guide dog, Alex, at her side throughout the assembly and the children were mesmerised by him throughout. Some of the children close by him also managed to enjoy giving Alex a stroke or two!

Mrs Best and Mrs Hutchinson spoke to us about how their friendship had come about and how important it is for sighted people to act as volunteer helpers. Children from each Year Group had prepared questions and some were able to pose their specific question to our visitors. The whole morning was informative and most enjoyable.

As a school we have established a link with Guide Dogs organisation and hope through the final phase of our fund raising to be able to donate £1,500 towards the training of a new guide dog. Perhaps it will even be Mrs Best's new guide dog after Alex retires as he's 8 now. Mrs Best has even thought of an appropriate name and has decided upon the name of 'Waring.' What a wonderful name!

The children were very well-behaved during our Assembly and managed to have a little stroke of Alex as we filed out of the hall. Alex was presented with a bone and dental stick just to show how much we appreciated his visit.

It is hoped that in the very near future the Nursery children will see the return of Mrs Best, Mrs Hutchinson and Alex along with a Guide Dog puppy. 

There will be a non-uniform day at the end of term to add to our current total which stands at £700.

Take a look through our gallery to see how well Alex behaved:
