P5/6 visit to World War II Exhibition

On Friday P5/6 visited Newry and Mourne Museum to participate in a Living History Workshop as part of their World War II topic. During the workshop pupils travelled back in time to experience life as a child in the 1940s and to learn about handling Gas Masks, Air Raid Procedures and Make Do and Mend.

Our short film shows very sad faces as P5/6 pupils were evacuated from their families just like the characters Olive and Cliff in their novel “Letters from the Lighthouse”.  A big decision for pupils to decide what items to pack into a small suitcase!

Gardening Club

What a fantastic morning Primary 3/4 had in Gardening Club. The children were very busy planting daffodil bulbs at the front of our school. We had a lovely morning learning how to get the soil ready and how to plant our bulbs correctly. It was brilliant to see the excellent teamwork from the boys and girls. Well done everyone!
