World Book Day 2022

Waringstown Primary School celebrated the 25th anniversary of World Book Day when both staff and pupils embraced the opportunity to come to school dressed as a character from a book. Across the school the children took part in various fun and creative reading and writing opportunities to really promote a love of books and of reading, not just for pleasure but also for a purpose.  Take a look through our gallery to see how amazing everyone looked:

Ukraine Support

Dear parent / s

All of us cannot help but be affected by the plight of the Ukrainian people at this time.

We believe it is important to 'do our bit' and to this end we wish to offer you some practical ways to help.

Colin Tinsley, a local youth worker, who appeared on television this week is currently working in the refugee camps in Poland where many Ukrainians have fled.

There are two practical options for you should you wish to help: 

  • Donations of Supplies
  • Monetary donations

Should you wish to donate supplies, please see below a list of local drop off points for Saturday morning (5 March) between 10am and 11am:

Tesco Lurgan car park

Moira Demesne car park

Donaghcloney Orange Hall

Waringstown - Hyways-Byways-Missions, 129 Banbridge Road

Banbridge Baptist Church car park

Also, we intend this year on Red Nose Day (Friday 18 March) to accept donations to help towards the Ukraine Aid Appeal. If you wish to donate you may send a sealed envelope into school or donate via Eduspot.  All proceeds will go directly to a local charity supporting the Ukrainian refugees.  Further details will follow next week.

Thank you to all our parents in anticipation!

World Book Day 2022

Dear parent / s                                                                                                                   


This year (the 25th anniversary) we plan to celebrate World Book Day once again. We are aware that the official day is Thursday 03 March. However, we as a school we will celebrate the event on Friday 04 March.

Children from Nursery to P6 may dress in character.

We are very aware of the additional stress and cost this can cause on a family household especially in these challenging times and we do not wish to see large amounts of money spent!

Children may also choose to bring in a photograph reading in an unusual place, or a prop which reflects their favourite character. Other suggested activities include a photograph of a character’s dining table with clues and props to help others guess who the meal is set for.

Primary 7 may wear their casual clothes on the day and will be celebrating the 25th anniversary of World Book Day with ‘You are a Reader’ workshops and fun activities and challenges.

There is no expectation that everyone should be dressed in costume. We are very aware that some children will simply wish to come to school in uniform and enjoy the activities which will be based around World Book Day 2022. If any child does not wish to dress in costume it is also acceptable to send them to school on Friday 04 March in casual clothes.

Thank you for your continued support!
