Farm Safety Talk

farm-safety_featureTomorrow morning we have a visitor in school, to give a talk on Farm Safety to classes P 1-P 7. Whilst we know not everyone lives on a farm, we do all live in a rural setting with farms and farm land around us and as we tragically know, farms can be very dangerous places. The talk will focus on safety around machinery, animals and slurry pits. Classes will attend in 2 groups: P 1 to P 4 at 9.30 am and P 5 to P 7 at 10.15 am. (Nursery will not be attending)

2017 Sports Day

This week we had the annual Whole School Sports Day. We were blessed with the weather and the children enjoyed a full day of activities. A huge thanks to SPAR Mullaghbawn who again sponsored packs for all of the children in the school. This is an extremely generous act and the pupils loved them. Thanks also to the P7 pupils who operated the ice cream stand. It was a busy day but the children all seemed to go home with a big smile on their face.
