Annual Sports Prizes

Recently our annual sports prizes were given out during a special assembly.  Teachers who coach after school sports awarded prizes for hockey, football, rugby and cricket.  To mark their time spent in senior choir the Primary 7 leavers were also presented with music medals as part of the celebration. Sports day winners in each Key Stage were presented with their awards to end the assembly! Everyone celebrated together, well done to all of our winners.

2019 School Fete

Dear parents
 
Thank you for coming together once again, in such a wonderful way, to celebrate the School Fete 2019.
 
It was wonderful to see children, parents, staff and supporters mingling in the grounds to enjoy this landmark annual event.
 
Thank you to every one of our generous donors and sponsors who donated to the Raffle or Auction.
Thank you to our superb 5 Star rated Kitchen Staff who once again so willingly agreed to cook our food for the event.
Thank you to the parents who volunteered to man a stall alongside the staff.
Thank you to the wonderful group of dads who stayed behind to tidy the school ensuring that we were able to open the school in such a good condition on Thursday morning!
 
We are simply thrilled to be able to announce that the grand total raised thus far is:
 
£11,000
 
Working, Playing, Succeeding Together is our motto and we certainly saw that in action last night!
 
Thank you!

Sports Day 2019

Sports Day 2019 . . . the weather was very kind and everyone had a great day!!! The children all enjoyed the races and events and the fact that so many parents managed to attend made the day ever so special.  The sports day pictures this year were taken by our Digital Leaders, a huge thank you to them. Sports Day 2019 was a huge success with several hundred friends and family mingling freely in the grounds.  It was wonderful to see so many of the school community relax over a cuppa and catch up with friends at Break time.

Thank you for your continued support!

Take a look through the Sports Day Gallery to see how everyone got on:

A Farewell To Mrs Johns

Waringstown Primary School recently came together for a morning assembly to say a fond farewell to Mrs K Johns, one of our classroom assistants, who has worked with us for just over 11 years.  Mrs Johns has recently qualified as a Teacher and we congratulate her on this success.  We shall miss Mrs Johns from the school very much as she has become a familiar figure to the Pupils and Staff alike.  We wish her every blessing as she moves on now to new pastures.

Keep Your Eye Out For The Easter Bunny In WPS!
