Primary 5 Achieve Half Marathon Distance

Primary 5 pupils completed their Half Marathon of 13.1 miles on what turned out to be a very pleasant Wednesday afternoon.  Approximately 43 Primary 5 children crossed the finishing line to achieve their Half Marathon Medal.  All other Primary 5 children supported their peers by marshalling the route and encouraging the runners on their way round.  Well done to all!

The celebration mile allowed parents, grandparents and other spectators to join in and support the runners.  The PSNI were present, with Constable Anderson and Constable Brown distributing the Race packs to the children crossing the finishing line.  Mr Mitchell, our very own P6 teacher (and Glenavon football player) presented each runner with a medal and certificate, alongside Mr McCambley. Our Race packs were very kindly sponsored by Moutrays, PSNI and Intersport, Rushmere Shopping Centre.  A special THANK YOU to the PSNI for their kind sponsorship of goodies for our race packs and also for coming along and supporting the Celebration Mile!  The children really enjoyed the extra treat of getting to see inside the police car! 

Mrs Williamson and Miss McAnearney enjoyed leading the Half Marathon Club this term and have been delighted with the children's enthusiasm throughout the 7 week programme and would like to congratulate each child on their Half Marathon achievement.  A huge thank you to our marshalls and also to Miss Duncan for all her assistance on the day.  Take a look through the gallery below, thank you to Mrs Peacocke for being our photographer:

Primary 5 Enjoy A Visit To The Ulster Museum

Primary 5 thoroughly enjoyed a recent visit to the Ulster Museum in connection with their World Around Us topic of The Egyptians.  The children enjoyed time in the Learning Zone led by a qualified Archaeologist, here they were able to identify and handle various artefacts from Egyptian times before heading up to Zone 2 in search of the famous Mummy Takabuti!  Click on the link below to learn more about what the children experienced through the visit:

Fire Service NI Visit Primary 5

Primary 5 were recently visited by the Northern Ireland Fire Service. The children were given a brief safety talk by the officers in class and were then taken outside to view the Fire Engine.  The children were shown a variety of objects which are needed when the Fire Service are required to visit a fire or accident! The children really enjoyed and benefited greatly from this very worthwhile and educational annual visit. A special thank you was said to the Lurgan Branch of NI Fire Service who were fantastic in relaying their safety message.

Primary 5P Lead Our Harvest Assembly

Primary 5 Mrs Peacocke’s class presented a lovely Harvest Assembly to the whole school.  They enjoyed performing a play ‘The Rainbow People’, a Harvest poem and a song called ‘Thankfulness’.  Mrs Peacocke is very proud of every child in her class and the role that they played in the assembly.  They remembered the importance of being thankful to God for all he has provided and also the responsibility we have to share and look after one another.  Thank you to everyone for their very kind and generous donations for the Craigavon Foodbank.  We were overwhelmed with the amount of food the children brought in and are so pleased that we are able to play our part in helping to provide for others. 

Enjoy the photos of the Assembly.
