What a busy day our Nursery gang had today. We welcomed Rotarian Gabriel Byrne and presented him with the shoeboxes kindly donated by parents. On behalf of the Newry Rotary club, Gabriel expressed his thanks and appreciation to the school community for our ongoing support. Then our little stars shone brightly during their nativity performance for a packed out hall, full of proud family members . They were fantastic and each and everyone of them played their part so well.
As with previous years we are supporting Newry Rotary Clubs Annual Shoebox appeal. Many thanks to those who have returned their boxes already, if you wish to join in, shoeboxes can be collected in the Nursery . The final day to return your shoebox is this Thursday – 13th. Thanks
The Smartie Box Challenge has had an amazing response. Together we have raised£1,176 for school funds. Congratulations to Moya Rafferty P7 winner of the cinema package and to MIA Mc ArdleP2 winner of the games hamper. Thank you to everyone who took part and supported us.
