Primary 7 Gifts From Canon Martin

Image preview

The Rev Canon B Martin (Chair of the Governors) visited school to leave a gift for each P7 child. The gifts are traditionally handed over towards the end of the second term. However, this year as Rev Martin is moving to Drumglass Parish, Dungannon in February, he’s brought the gifts in early. We will pass these gifts on to the children upon their much anticipated return to school.

We thank Rev Martin and Holy Trinity Church for this gesture and also wish Rev & Mrs Martin along with their family every blessing as they start this new chapter in their family’s life.

Christmas Jumper Day 2020

Recently the children wore their Christmas Jumpers to school to raise money for The Royal Belfast Hospital for Sick Children. Everyone enjoyed the day and it was great to see the children busy in their classrooms preparing crafts and other Christmas related activities.  Lots of colourful photographs to browse, click on the link below to view:

VLM Certificate Of Achievement

We are delighted to have received a certificate from VLM Mini Marathon congratulating all of our pupils for participating in the event during Autumn term.  We have added this to our certificate of achievements in the school mall.

Christmas Dinner Day

Dear parents / s

On Wednesday I wish to inform you that your child / ren may wear a bright / colourful jumper to school. They may even choose to wear their Christmas jumper. We DO NOT wish for new clothes to be bought during these challenging days

The Christmas Jumper will add to the Christmas Dinner Day which is Wednesday 02 December.

Children should wear their 'normal' uniform on the day but simply wear the colourful jumper as well.

Christmas Dinner Day is always a joyful and pleasant day under more normal circumstances and it is hoped that by dressing slightly differently on Wednesday, we can still add a touch of Christmas flair to the occasion.

Thank you for your continued support in all school matters.

Mini London Marathon 2.6 Mile Event Celebration


Back in September / October of Term 1 our school participated in the London Mini Marathon Event which entailed covering a distance of 2.6 miles over a specified period of time. 

We have been very fortunate to be one of the schools to receive medals for every pupil in the school who completed this distance. 

We are thrilled to have achieved this as a whole school. 

Remembrance 2020

Today saw a very different Remembrance Day within school.

Even though we couldn’t come together in the Assembly Hall, the children were able to sing a hymn and listen to the Remembrance Assembly via their Interactive Whiteboards. The significance of the Poppy emblem and the day itself were explained.

Primary 7 Mrs Sloan’s class came to the village War Memorial to place the school’s wreath at the base of the clock tower too. The oldest boy and girl from the school placed the wreath on behalf of the school.

School Dinners Commence On Monday 07 September 2020

Dear parents

We have established sound routines within school and are now in a position to resume the cooked dinner option from Mon 07 September.

The Eduspot link is working and has proven very straightforward to operate as we move towards our goal of being a cashless school.

The Dinner Menu has now been posted on the website. You simply select the days you wish to purchase a meal over the weekend.

A school meal costs £2.60 / day.

Initially the menu is restricted to one meal option daily. The meal will be delivered directly to the classroom door with cutlery on the plate. Each plate, along with the enclosed cutlery, will be sealed with tin foil.

Primary One children continue to go home for the month of September at 12.30pm. Therefore, this does NOT apply to them.

Thank you for your continued support as we grow in confidence with Eduspot. Should you be experiencing technical difficulties please contact Mrs Fitzpatrick, in the School Office, who will endeavour to connect you to the system.

Re-start Eduspot

Dear parents

The Eduspot email notifications have been issued and we ask that you simply register now following their instructions.

Please check your email Inbox or the Junk box.

NB Children require their own Break and Lunch in August as the School Kitchen may not prepare food in the summer months.

The facility to enable you to order Packed Lunches from the kitchen in September will go live later next week.

Re-start - Nut Free School

Dear parents

We wish to remind you that Waringstown Primary School is a NUT FREE ZONE.

This means that all children are required to have a safe Packed Break or Lunch.

Children should avoid ALL nuts; eg Pesto Pasta Salad. Pesto contains cashew and / or pine nuts. Therefore, pesto sauce in wraps or pasta salads MUST be strictly off the menu in school both at Break and Lunch time.

Kiwi is another food item to be avoided as we have several children with a severe allergy.

Thank you for your ongoing support in this most vital aspect of safeguarding procedures within school.
