Weather permitting...It's Sports' Day tomorrow! (Tuesday, 12th June, 2018)

We aim to start races at 12.30pm and plan to finish at 2pm.  Pupils will be escorted to the football pitch by school staff.   Children to be collected at the football pitch, not at school.  Parents must let their child's teacher know before taking them home. 

Please apply suncream to your child before coming to school. 

School t-shirt and jumper to be worn, with shorts or tracksuit bottoms and trainers.

A sun hat, bottle of water and light raincoat is also required.

We will be having an early lunch at school, so if your child is having a packed lunch, it might be easier to send it in a plastic bag, to save them carrying anything up to the pitches.

No schoolbags are needed tomorrow.

Looking forward to seeing you all at the football pitches tomorrow afternoon to cheer on your children!

    Thanks, Thanks, Thanks!

    Just a quick note to say thanks to everyone who planned, prepared, assisted or supported our fundraiser this evening. We will have raised a significant amount which is important but the fun, fellowship and relaxed atmosphere experienced by pupils, parents and friends were every bit as rewarding. More news about winners, figures etc. early next week.



Our P7 pupils took part in a 3 day computer coding course - HIVE HACKERS.  The course was run by Price Waterhouse Cooper, a very large accountancy firm.  They really enjoyed it and were presented with certificates and medals for completing the course.

On Wednesday 18th April we had a visit from Maghera author of the Weatherbies stories, Yvonne Fleming.  Throughout the day the pupils heard about her weather based characters and stories.  She explained how she created her characters and how she has now published two of her stories as books. 

We really enjoyed her visit.
