Supper With Santa Update Report!

'Supper with Santa' proved to be a wonderful success with several hundred children and adults visiting the school on both nights.  There was a tremendous sense of community in the building as children and adults visited the various craft stalls and mingled over a cup of tea and dessert in the Assembly Hall.  A huge thank you to everyone for the continued support shown to Waringstown PS!

Supper With Santa Report!

Santa was definitely kept busy by all the boys and girls of Waringstown Primary School on our first evening of 'Supper with Santa'.  Thankfully he had Mrs Claus and the Elves by his side to help him out!  Parents, grandparents and friends were entertained by the school choir and instrumentalist groups while enjoying a well deserved coffee and dessert.  Lots of crafts were on show and for sale throughout the evening, as well as a movie and story telling room.  Everyone enjoyed the Christmas festivities and we are looking forward to welcoming all those who are planning to attend on Thursday evening for another enjoyable event!

Here are a few photos capturing only a small part of our first evening:

Friends From America!

We had the privilege to host a group of twelve students along with their tour tutor Mr B Milk and the Education Lecturer Dr E Alcindor from Liberty University, Virginia, USA. This opportunity comes through our strong link with Stranmillis University College, Belfast.

The students attended our Morning Assembly and introduced themselves to the whole school informing us about their home state and personal background. Everyone was delighted to welcome the American Educationalists to Waringstown Primary School.

Over the course of the day they toured each classroom and observed the Teaching and Learning taking place from the Nursery to the P7 classrooms.

What a tremendous opportunity to showcase the wonderful work of Waringstown Primary School.

Anti-Bullying Week - 12 November to 16 November 2018

It is Anti-Bullying Week, this is coordinated by the Northern Ireland Anti-Bullying Forum.  Anti-Bullying week takes place from Monday 12 November until Friday 16 November 2018.  The focus of Anti-Bullying Week 2018 is on the theme of RESPECT. 

Under this theme we are encouraging our children to think about what RESPECT means to them, what it feels like to be respected and how they show respect to others.  Overall, we are exploring how respect for others can build an anti-bullying culture in our schools, youth groups and wider communities.

Primary 4 Mr Gault's class are hosting a whole school assembly tomorrow on the theme of 'Operation Blue' which will further raise awareness with our children.  Click on the following link to find out more information on Anti-Bullying Week:

Boys' Football Success - Champions

Just before half term the boys football team travelled over to Drumgor Primary School for the annual 7- A-Side Mid Ulster festival of football.

As the headline suggests the boys came through the tournament unbeaten. The boys won their group and progressed to the quarter finals to meet Hart Memorial PS. The boys won this tight game to set up a derby match against Kings Park PS. After a tense game, the teams could not be separated in normal time. Penalties decided the winner and we progressed to the final thanks to some excellent penalties and great goalkeeping. The final again was a very close encounter and finished 1-1 against Bocombra PS and both teams shared the trophy. Well done to all the boys'!
