A number of children from both Primary 7 classes enjoyed a very successful day at Asda selling "Christmas in a Bag". The children had set up their own business and produced the bags in the classroom themselves.
Many thanks to Mr Gordon and Mr Cordner for their help and advice, and to the parents and classroom assistants who helped with transport and selling at Asda.
The children have gained so many skills by taking part in the Young Enterprise scheme and again thanks must be given to Mrs Helen Fitzpatrick for her guidance and for Asda for allowing the children to sell in their store in Portadown. We may have some entrepreneurs in the making! Watch out Lord Sugar!!
As Girls Hockey comes to an end for Term One the teachers would just like to say a huge thanks to the girls for coming each week with great enthusiasm and motivation (no matter what the weather J). It is a pleasure to watch the girls develop their hockey skills and grow in confidence on the hockey pitch. We look forward to seeing all the girls back at hockey in the new year. Here are a few photos of the girls during our last hockey practice.
Once again, great fun was had by the Gardening Club members when we visited the Nursery owned by Mr and Mrs Geddis. We were able to see their preparations for the new season and hear how this busy nursery is managed at this time of the year.
Shamrock growing is in full swing and we were shown the work that is required to have these plants ready for St Patrick's Day. The club members have been challenged to care for their own shamrock plant and have this ready for a competition in March. The children were amazed by the large glasshouses that need maintained both to withstand winter conditions and also to prepare for the growing season in the spring.
The visit finished with a welcome hot chocolate and treats provided by Mrs Geddis. Needless to say, the children are very keen to repeat the visit later in the year to see the Nursery in full production.
A huge thanks to the parents who provided transportation and also to the Geddis family for their great welcome and tour!

This week in Primary 2 we have been learning about keeping healthy as part of our 'Wonderful Me' topic. Today, we had a visit from Karen Lyness who is a parent in school and is a dental nurse. She taught the children about good dental hygiene and showed us how to use disclosing tablets. These colour your teeth and show up areas of plaque (blue is old and red is new) and they teach us how to brush properly.
The children had opportunities to brush an enlarged set of teeth and each child took home a dental pack which included their own toothbrush! A huge thank you to Mrs Lyness for coming in and bringing in a pack for each child.
