Primary 5 Mrs Williamson's class held their Harvest Assembly on Friday 12th October. They decorated the assembly hall with the help of Mrs Wilson. The whole school, including the Nursery unit joined together in celebrating the season of Harvest. Everyone worked together to contribute to the decorations for the hall, a special mention needs to go to Mrs Emerson and the Nursery who allowed us to borrow their farm vehicles and machinery for the morning! Harvest is a time of celebration and to thank God for what has been provided to us through this years hard work and labour. The whole assembly were further treated to a superb performance from Senior Choir. Primary 5 really enjoyed performing and Mr McCambley give them a huge thanks at the end of Assembly. Mrs Williamson was extremely proud of Primary 5 and rewarded them with a special treat - this proved a great end to their day!
We were absolutely delighted with the response to the Food Bank Appeal once again. The Friday Assembly photographs reveal the wonderful response to the appeal. As usual we have been simply humbled by your generosity and kindness. Thank you for supporting the school in this most practical way. Even the Nursery helped to bring in items of food!
A special mention to Primary 7 Mrs Erskine's class who organised all of the food products and prepared them for collection. A very busy morning indeed but very worthwhile for everyone involved!
THANK YOU once again!!
The Half Marathon Club is already into its second week, the Primary 5 pupils are enjoying the activities so far and are showing great progression! Mrs Williamson and Miss McAnearney are very proud of all the boys and girls who turn up very enthusiastically every week.
As P4 and P6 were visited by staff from N.I. Water to talk about 'Water and Health,' we've been given a drip-free water bottle for every pupil. Your child should receive theirs at some point this week. We're asking pupils to take them home and write their name on the bottle using permanent marker.
These bottles have been donated by N.I. Water to encourage us to stop using the 'drink once' plastic bottles and reduce our plastic use.
A huge thank you to N.I. Water for their time and generosity.
Primary 2 travelled to Armagh Palace Stables today for our ‘Apple Trip’. We learned how apples come from the tree, to the factory, to the shops and to our homes. We saw how apple juice was made in the 1700’s and how to make apple potato bread. We made our own apple core using card, lollypop sticks and string. A super day was enjoyed by all the children! J
Mr McKittrick recently visited the Primary 1 children in their classroom. They looked at his uniform and learnt how his coat is fluorescent so he can be seen in the dark and that it has reflectors to help the cars see him.
The children went outside to practice how to cross the road safely with his help. They know to hold an adult’s hand, wait until Mr McKittrick calls them and to walk in front of him.
We remember to always say ‘thank you’ as he helps us to cross the road.
P1 went for an autumn walk in our school grounds looking for signs of Autumn!
The Nursery recently had a successful evening with parents to present the Big Bedtime Read Information Evening. Mrs Emerson led the evening and guided parents to consider the importance of the Bedtime Story, sharing tips and ideas for ways to make story telling beneficial for all our children. The evening was well attended and the parents got to see some of the new books their children will get home in their lovely new book bags.
Our School Eco Council for 2018-19 have now all been elected and taken up their positions on the Council. They had their first meeting earlier and are all ready for the busy year ahead; Going for our second Green Eco flag and 'Going for Gold' through SUSTRANS.
It was brilliant to see so many pupils interested in joining the School Eco Council and the manifestos written and presented were of top quality.
Congrats to our new eight Councillors
Did you know that our bodies are 75% water? We naturally lose water daily!
P4 were learning about the importance of Water today as part of their healthy living curriculum. It was great to have Pat from NI Water join us to talk about how much water we should drink. He showed us the amount of sugar in various other drinks and informed us about how water helps to:

Children from Primary 2 recently got busy with apples! They stewed the Bramley apples with Mrs McCracken and then, together as a whole class, made the pastry, rolling out the dough and cutting a circle shape for the base and top. They used the stewed apple to fill the pies. Every child loved making their very own apple pie.
The only challenge was keeping it until home time!! J
