Sponsored Walk Draw

A huge thank you to everyone who returned sponsor cards following our sponsored walk at Hallowe’en, an amazing total of £1,800 was raised for school funds!

All the names of those who returned their sponsor cards were put into a raffle and 2 draws made, the lucky families were the Kellys and O’ Callaghans (Nursery pupil), each family received a gift voucher for Smyth’s Toys.

An additional raffle was held for all those who raised around £50 and over, the lucky winners were the Ferris Family.

One P7 pupil who overall raised the highest amount, well in excess of  £100, was acknowledged for her superb effort.

Amazing work everyone.

Gardening Club

Well done to the boys and girls of P3/4 for their great work in Gardening Club this week. With a little guidance the boys and girls were able to use the skills and knowledge they gained over the last weeks to plant their own daffodils. I can’t wait to see some photos in the Spring when they begin to flower!

The P4’s were able to see some of the different things they had planted before the summer break. Some lovely spring onions and tomato plants.

Student Council Elections

Student Council Elections

Some photos from our Student Council Presentations on Friday…. a lot of thought went into the presentations and speeches and some really good ideas were put forward which we look forward to discussing further when we have our first meeting later this week.

A huge well done to everyone who took part, it’s not easy to stand up and deliver a presentation or speech in front of your peers, much less take questions from the floor, definitely a few politicians in the making!

Student Council Elections

The corridors are festooned with campaign posters ahead of tomorrow’s elections for positions on our Student Council. Many of the changes in our school over the last few years have come about because of ideas and proposals from the Student Council. We are sure that this year will be no different, many interesting proposals have already been put forward on election posters. Tomorrow P4-P7 pupils will hear the speeches and presentations of their year group peers before they cast their vote. Good luck to everyone who is taking part and well done on all the work you have put into your election campaign so far.
