World Diabetes Day 2021

World Diabetes Day is a global occasion on which people with diabetes, health professionals, diabetes advocates, media, the general public and government organisations unite to raise awareness of diabetes. Your participation – both in the build-up to and following 14 November – is key to the success of the campaign. Taking part can be exciting and hugely rewarding! 

This year some of our classes joined together to raise awareness of diabetes.  The girls painted their nails blue, while the boys wore blue socks.  The pupils also participated in a diabetes awareness walk on the MUGA pitch.  Pupils also promoted the use of bracelets to identify diabetes.  Rufus the bear was introduced to pupils and they were informed of his role in helping children learn about diabetes when first diagnosed.

New School Term - School Bags

Dear parent / s

I trust this note finds you well and enjoying the summer break.

I write to remind you that we plan to resume using the shared Cloakrooms in the new term rather than hang coats etc in each classroom on a rail.  This means that school bags will be required. 

Please keep an eye to the school website in late August for further updates and information regarding re-start routines.

Easter Assembly

Mr McCambley was able to join together virtually with each classroom to deliver his Easter Assembly to the whole school.

The true meaning of Easter was highlighted and the class bubbles were also able to sing along with an Easter Song.  Singing together and coming together collectively as a school is something we all miss very much from the life of the school.

Nevertheless, the true meaning of Easter was emphasised through Mr McCambley’s Easter Talk and he very much enjoyed hearing the class bubbles sing along when he was walking through the building.

Happy Easter to the whole school community!

Return To School Programme Hosted By Mr Moran

It was wonderful to welcome Mr Moran back in to school today as he commences his return to school programme.  The scheme is designed to bolster the children's mental health as they engage in activities with their classmates and generally enjoy socialising and playing with their friends.

The eagle-eyed among you may have seen Mr Moran's interview on UTV earlier in the week.

We are delighted Mr Moran has been able to accommodate our school into his busy schedule.  He's a familiar face to the children as he always organises the BeeActive football camps.

Initially, the activities will operate in Nursery along with P1 - P4 and then focus on P5 - P7 later in Term 3.

New School Office

Dear parent / s
 
We are delighted that the Education Authority have agreed to reposition the School’s Office to the Central Mall at the main entrance doors from the Visitors Car Park. As a school we were always concerned that visitors were frequently ‘buzzed’ into school and gain access directly to classrooms which is in breach of all schools Child Protection policies and protocols.

The building works have commenced and should take approx 6 weeks.

Children will NOT be in contact with the builders throughout the day and Primary 3 pupils have rehearsed their ‘new way‘ to gain access to their respective classrooms.
 
All visitors should continue to park in the Visitors Car Park and if a child is to be collected early, simply walk down the avenue to enter the mall via the morning access door using the buzzer system.

In the unlikely event that the buzzer access system is not working because of the building work, please phone Mrs Fitzpatrick in the office on 02838881367.

Thank you for your continued flexibility and support as we seek to safeguard the children and enhance our school building.

Collection of the P4, P5, P6 & P7 Mrs Sloan Learning Packs on Friday 12 March

Dear parent / s

At present the main entrance to school is no longer in operation from the Visitors Car Park end of the mall.

Parents should still continue to park in the Visitors Car Park if they are coming to school for a collection.

The short video explains that the Learning Packs for P4, P5, P6 & P7 Mrs S Sloan are to be collected from the Assembly Hall via the hall’s back / fire door on Friday 12 March.

Packs may be collected on Friday 12 March (8.15am - 2.00pm).

If you are coming to school to collect a child early, please telephone Mrs Fitzpatrick in the School Office (tel: 02838881367) upon arrival and we will walk your child out to the Visitors Car Park via a safe route avoiding the building works.

Thank you for your continued support

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.
