Opus Digital Photography - Tuesday 25 February 2020

Dear parents

This year Opus Digital Photography (Roy Clements) is offering photographs to:

                              P1, P3 & P5.

The idea is to offer the individual and family photograph every other year. However, if your child is in P2, P4 or P6 you can still use the form to opt for a photograph to be taken: we know some parents like the option of an annual photograph! P7 may wish to be included in a family photo too!

                  Family photos are taken early from 8.30am

 Photographs will take place on:

                          Tuesday 25 February

 Please note this date and plan accordingly.

Christmas Post Box Raises Money For RHSC Belfast

The Christmas Post Box proved as popular as ever this year! Our Postboys and girls carried out their roles efficiently and all post was delivered daily to each classroom. The total amount raised is £200.00 and this will be forwarded to The Royal Hospital for Sick Children, Belfast as our annual contribution on behalf of our school community.

Non-uniform Day / Guide Dogs for the Blind

Description: https://awordwithdaniel.files.wordpress.com/2012/12/ladies-mens-knitted-christmas-jumper-rudolph-print-in-warm-red-4283-p.jpgThis year we plan to hold a non-uniform day on Wednesday 18 December (thereafter children may wear casual clothes for the remainder of the week). We ask that children wear their Christmas jumpers to school on this day or that they simply wear something bright and cheerful. Suggested donation is £1.00.

 

As a school we have established a link with The Guide Dogs for the Blind and once we reach our £1,500 TARGET FIGURE we will be in a position to adopt a puppy on behalf of the children in our school. Having had our visit from Mrs J Best and Mrs M Hutchinson (from Guide Dogs for the Blind) we have almost reached our target to adopt a puppy and to call him ‘Waring’!

The amount already raised stands at £1,034.50.

Recently our whole school joined together for a Remembrance Assembly.  Mr McCambley led the assembly, highlighting the importance of the Poppy, explaining to the children how the leaf of the poppy should always be set at the 11 o'clock position.  This is to remind us of the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month when the armistice was signed.  The children participated in the assembly and carried out the act of remembrance to remember those who died. 

Anti-Bullying Week 2019: Change Starts With Us

Anti-Bullying Week banner

 

The theme: Change Starts With Us 

Small change. Big difference.

Whether it is verbal, physical, online or in-person, bullying has a significant impact on a child’s life well in to adulthood. By making small, simple changes, we can break this cycle and create a safe environment for everyone. Because together, we can challenge bullying. Change starts with a conversation. It starts with checking in. It starts with work together.

Change starts here.
Change starts now.
Change starts with us.

This year the goal is to inform schools and settings, children and young people, parents and carers to know that it takes a collective responsibility to stop bullying. We are excited for this campaign as we want to create empowering, positive messages addressing the fact that when it comes to bullying CHANGE STARTS WITH US!
