Congratulations to the pupils chosen as Pupil of the Week in KS 2 this morning. Their awards were given for: improved concentration and focus on their work, for being great ambassadors for their school and for having positive attitudes towards school life in general. Well done and keep it up!
Well done to our four Junior Road Safety Officers who took part in the regional heat of the NI Road Safety Quiz. The children had to answer a mixture of general knowledge and road safety questions and performed very well, coming in eighth place overall in the district. It was a very well organised event in the Canal Court Hotel and thanks to the sponsors “CRASH,” who provided refreshments and sponsored materials to bring back to school. Our officers will now look to pass on the message of road safety throughout our school over the course of their last few months in P7.
P7 had a wonderful day in St John the Baptist Church, Drumcree in Portadown for the mass to mark the beginning of Catholic Schools Week 2018. It was a very special occasion, made even more so as three of our own pupils were involved in the ceremony. The theme was linked to “The World Meeting of Families” and we look forward to disseminating some of the key messages to the school at assembly on Friday. Thanks to the organisers for the invitation to attend.
To mark the beginning of Catholic Schools’ Week 2018, our P 7 class are travelling tomorrow to attend Mass in St. John the Baptist Church Drumcree, with pupils from all over the Armagh Diocese. One of our pupils, Rhiannon, is taking part in the ceremony and we need to be there for a practice before Mass begins. Please everyone be on time in the morning, we will be leaving at 9.15 am sharp. Everyone should wear full school uniform, (shirt and tie), please bring a packed lunch as we will not be back in time for dinners.
