Numbers’ Day

Numbers’ Day

.

There were numbers everywhere today, helping us to spread the important message, “Speak Out, Stay Safe”. Even Buddy the NSPCC mascot made a return visit to help out.

We hope you enjoy catching a glimpse of some of the activities we were involved in around the school. Watch out for more pictures in the local papers this week.

A big thank you to family and friends for sponsoring the children in their Dance- athon and to our student teachers Miss Hearty and Miss Murphy who led all the classes through their dance moves.

Finally a big thank you to Mrs O’ Hagan our Numeracy Co-ordinator for organising the day and promoting a love of Maths with all the boys and girls.
