Waringstown Primary School

Adverse Weather Conditions Notice

Dear parents

Please note school policy that in adverse weather conditions, such as today’s snow, we shall always strive to open.

Several staff do travel quite a considerable distance to school yet we were delighted to be able to open school today.

Mr McKittrick and I greatly appreciated the fact that a parent came to school this morning to help with the clearing of snow and to ensure that all access paths were safely gritted. That’s teamwork!

Children enjoyed a chance to play outside and to enjoy the snow at Break time so thank you for ensuring appropriate clothing and boots etc came to school this morning too.

Should the school have to close or be advised to close by DENI a message will appear on the BBC NI News schools closure list and our own website as early as possible.

Thank you for your support in all school matters.

C McCambley

Music Service Orchestra (Southern Region) Treat WPS To A Christmas Concert

The Music Service Orchestra (Southern Region) recently visited Waringstown Primary School and WOW we did not know what was instore!!  All children from Primary 1 to Primary 7 were indeed treated to a fantastic christmas concert led by our very own Orchestra. During the concert the children got to see Mrs Peacocke conduct and they also got to sing along to the Orchestra.  One of our own Primary 7 pupils was invited to play with the Orchestra by Mrs Gallagher, a familiar Music Tutor in WPS.  The children enjoyed this experience thoroughly, as did all of the staff in attendance!

Christmas Recipe Performance

The whole school came together recently to celebrate the Primary 1, 2, 3 & 4 Nativity; ‘Christmas Recipe.’
We were so pleased to see children, parents, grandparents and supporters mingling freely in the school during the performances. The children were so excited to play their part on the stage and as a school we wish to thank you for your overwhelming support.
Mrs Brown, Mrs Park and all of the staff were delighted with every one of the 240 children coming on to stage in their beautiful festive costumes.
Thank you once again and enjoy looking at some of the photos from the recent performances in the gallery link below.
A DVD will be on sale soon!

Christmas Jumper Day - Monday 18 December

Dear parent / s

Just a reminder that Monday 18 December is our Guide Dogs for the Blind Christmas Jumper Day. Children may wear casual clothes with their jumper! We are suggesting a £1.00 donation.

Early in the New Year we will be having a visit from the Guide Dogs who will bring along an actual guide dog to Assembly.

We hope, ultimately, to be able to name our own school guide dog for a visually impaired person.

This week, we are suggesting that you may wish to send children to school in casual clothes as there will be Christmas parties.

Thank you for your continued support as we look forward to Christmas!

Waringstown Primary School is open today, Friday 08 December.

Please ensure you travel safely to school.  We will understand if children are a little late; especially if you have chosen to walk your family to school.

Warm scarves, hats and coats along with wellington boots are encouraged especially if we decide to play outside in the snow at break.  Please send a second pair of training shoes in a bag so that we can swap wellies/boots for indoor use.
