Important Information for all Parents.

Dear Parents/ Guardians,

Our Primary 7 classes are making their Confirmation next week, this Special Ceremony will be take place on Tuesday 17th of May and Thursday 19th of May.  On these dates  the school will close at 2pm for all pupils.  There will be a restricted after school facility available for those children who in exceptional circumstances cannot be collected at 2pm and need to travel home on the 3pm bus.  Best wishes to the children and their families on this very important occasion, May God Bless them on their Confirmation day and always.

Last week in Nursery we hosted “The Great Nursery Bake off “. The class was divided into three groups, each group decided on what goodies they were going to produce.  We looked up recipes and wrote out our ingredient list before setting off to our local Spar – McCreesh’s shop.  Lots of learning took place in our adventure to the shop, exploring food origins, talk of recycling plastic bags, and money handling, thanks to the shop assistants who were very patient with their visitors.
On return to Nursery our budding bakers set to work, measuring and mixing.    The treats were enjoyed by all, with all participants being crowned worthy winners of The Bake Off.

Enjoy this video of the Nursery at work.

Looking back over lockdown

Looking back over lockdown

Dear Parents and Friends of our school,

We have been completely humbled and overwhelmed firstly to be nominated for recognition in the the up and coming Families First awards and secondly by the number of votes and heartfelt comments we have received.  The audience that has taken time to vote reaches far and wide and has made us realise what an extensive school community we have.  Regardless of the outcome at the Awards ceremony this Saturday night, we the staff and pupils are  already feeling like winners, so our sincere thanks.
We have complied a video of some of our lockdown memories linked below, the video is approximately 15minutes long, it could have been a three hour blockbuster as when we looked back collectively over everyone’s input to our online provision and in school service we have realised what a tremendous effort went in to ensuring some sort of normality and fun for our children.
If you haven’t already cast a vote, please click on the link below.  We really appreciate it.

Enjoy the linked video, it gives us all an opportunity to reflect on how far we have come from Easter two years ago.  Looking forward to better times in the near future.
Kind regards,
