Habitat for Humanity NI

 

We were delighted to welcome back Habitat for Humanity NI to do workshops with all of our Key Stage 2 pupils. All of our Primary 5, 6 and 7's worked with Peter learning about waste, recycling and the many struggles of the third world.

The wonderful work of Habitat for Humanity can't go unnoticed and we were delighted to weclome Peter back this morning to be able to give a donation to this work.

Anti-Bullying Week and Children and Need 2020

Dear Parents

Anti-bullying (Alliance NI) week begins on Mon 16 November with this year’s theme being ‘United Against Bullying.’

As well as several in class activities on Monday 16 November we will be joining schools all over the UK to spread awareness of Anti-Bullying by wearing odd socks to school (with normal school uniforms).

We are also aware that Friday 13 November is Children in Need Day. Therefore, we plan to celebrate Children in Need Day on Monday 16 November by wearing odd socks.

If you wish to make a donation to the Children in Need charity, simply send the money into the class teacher on Monday 16 November and we will pass all donations on to the BBC Children in Need appeal.

Kind regards

Miss J McAnearney
