Mrs Peacocke’s class put on a wonderful assembly today for the rest of the school and she is very proud of each and every one of them. They really are a very talented class. They had an important message for everyone, explaining the importance of friendship and what makes a good friend. They sang a beautiful song ‘Seeds of Friendship’. Check out the photos below J
Primary 2 recently travelled to Armagh Palace Stables for their 'Apple Trip'. They learned how apples come from the tree, to the factory, to the shops and to our homes. They saw how apple juice was made in the 1700's and how to make apple potato bread. They made their own apples using card and tissue paper and played apple games! Overall it was a super day which was enjoyed by al the children!
Next Friday, 27 October, we will be hosting a movie day for all of our pupils. This will take place after lunch time. Details about this will be coming home shortly.
The Primary One children observed Hyacinth bulbs. The teacher cut the bulbs in half and the children looked at them using magnifying glasses. They then planted two bulbs - one in a bulb jar with water and one in the soil. They put them both into the dark to grow roots and shoots.
The Primary One children will watch how their bulbs grow and turn into beautiful Hyacinth Flowers in time for Spring! We will have to have patience though!
After weeks of preparation and practice Miss McAnearney’s P4’s took to the stage to perform their play which was called ‘Captain Perseverance to the Rescue’. The theme of the assembly was ‘Never Give Up’. Each and every pupil performed magnificently. See photos below which captured them in action.

Over the past two weeks P4 have been completing a Writing Project which aims to promote sustainable travel and walking to school. They started this by exploring what persuasive language is, and gathered information and the pros and cons of saying that everyone should walk to school. P4 then spent time planning, looking at advertisement posters and the language used within them. Today, P4 got to create their own 'WALK TO SCHOOL' posters using illustrations and persuasive language. Some of these posters will be placed around school, which links in well with our SUSTRANS work and ECO SCHOOLS work.
Well done P4

The Rev Bryan Martin was in school today as the Chairman of our Board of Governors to introduce the ‘Inspector Smart’ stage production. Holy Trinity sponsored this event as part of their year of mission in the Church of Ireland and we are most grateful for this support.
Dave and Michael introduced the children to Captain Mike, Undercover Mike, Michael the Frenchman, Dr Von Pomplenickel and of course Inspector Smart.
The message was that Jesus is the king and nothing can separate us from God’s love.
They journeyed through the Bible using drama, songs and puppetry emphasising that Jesus is alive and He is the King.
Everybody thoroughly enjoyed the performance! The children had a wonderful morning of live theatre.
Please note that due to illness Golf Lessons for all those who attend from P2 to P7 have been cancelled today.
Lessons will resume as normal next week.
The storm caused quite a bit of damage to our wooded grounds and we did have one large tree down across the children’s pedestrian path which takes them home.
Thankfully, the tree which came down during Monday evening's storm was safely and quickly removed by the EA grounds men who were in school on Tuesday morning. The path is now totally accessible again. Thank you and well done!
We do anticipate that school will be open again tomorrow (Wednesday 18 Oct). This will be a normal full day with extra-curricular activities (Golf and half-Marathon) running to 4.00pm.
School meals will operate as normal and indicated on the October Menu. The correct food will be served so the menu is correct!
Primary 6 Swimming
Waves Leisure Centre, Lurgan, have been in touch to announce that due to unforeseen circumstances the pool will be closed tomorrow therefore, we have cancelled Primary 6 swimming.
Inspector Smart (Theatre visit)
Wednesday 18 October sees Inspector Smart arriving in school for ‘The Greatest Rescue Ever!’. The theatre group will be staging this production sponsored by Holy Trinity Church of Ireland. Children will enjoy feet tapping songs and their hearts will be singing as they find out wonderful truths about King Jesus, and the Greatest rescue EVER!
The Round Pound
Please remember that the school can no longer accept the round pound coin. Wednesday sees the collection of dinner money after our Exceptional Closures so your help in this matter is very much appreciated.
We were absolutely delighted with the response to the Craigavon Area Food Bank Appeal once again.
The whole school community came together on Wednesday and Mr McCambley shared a Harvest themed talk.
The letters of the word ‘HARVEST’ were considered.
The letter ‘H’, which stood for our Help, was removed and the remaining letters were re-arranged to spell STARVE. Mr McCambley encouraged all of the boys and girls to bring in an item of food for the appeal and explained that by HELPING we were stopping some people from going hungry and being without food.
The Friday Assembly photos reveal the wonderful level of 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!
Food Bank will collect the food from school on Monday 16 October so if you would still like to contribute please send food in to school on Monday morning.
We hope to receive a Certificate of Thanks from the Food Bank soon which in turn we will post on the website and display in the mall trophy cabinet.
Thank you once again!
