P4 visit from Northern Ireland Water

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:

  • boost energy levels
  • keep mentally alert
  • keep organs healthy concentrate
  • stop headaches
  • have healthy skin
  • have fresher breath
  • flush waste from our bodies

Wrigley Litter Less campaign - Pick 1

Some of our P7 girls have signed up as our 'Wrigley Litter Less Team,' and will be involved in going around our school grounds and local streets in picking up litter. Today four of the team went out with Mr Gault to begin our project.

The Litter Less Campaign is a joint initiative of the Wrigley Company Foundation and FEE. The Campaign entered its third phase in 2017 and will run in 15 countries until 2019. The Litter Less Campaign Phase III is being implemented in schools through the Eco-Schools and/or Young Reporters for the Environment (YRE) programmes. It aims to engage and educate children and young people on the issue of litter, and encourage them to make positive choices.

There will be five more ventures outside our own grounds before the project report must be completed, by April 2019.

The Snug Bug Hotel is opened

You may have wondered why we've collected a few pallets around the front of school over the past number of months...and here is the reason why. Our P3s have been studying mini-beasts and in order to keep them happy have built 'The Snug Bug Hotel.' The children used various items and debris to fill the pallets to encourage the mini-beasts to come and stay.

Dairy Council Food & Fitness Programme for P5 & P6

Primary 5 and 6 recently enjoyed a visit from the Dairy Council.  The Food and Fitness Programme for Primary 5 and 6 has been developed by the Dairy Council for Northern Ireland to help teach primary school children about the benefits of a balanced diet and an active lifestyle.  The children really enjoyed this experience and had fun participating in all of the various activities.
