Primary 1-4

This week we enjoyed some Cinderella shoe size problem solving, designing, creating and producing a Hansel and Gretel puppet show and had lots of fun during outdoor learning. We also completed a summer themed talking and listening activity about our summer bucket lists. Let’s hope the sun shines and we get to do some of our summer wishes!

Primary 5-7

Primary 5-7 worked hard on completing lots of finish work this week. Primary 7 have been working tirelessly to perfect their leaver’s assembly being held on Tuesday 28th June. They have set the bar high and we got a sneak preview in school on Thursday! Tissues at the ready mums and dads!

Sports Day

Well done to each and every one who took part in sport’s day. You were all beautifully behaved; you showed off your skills and talents and did both yourselves and us the staff so proud! Thank you to the staff for putting the event together. Thank you to our parent and family helpers on the day and thanks to Mrs McGarel who represented the Board of Governors and took part in the prize-giving.

Transition Day

We enjoyed a variety of team building activities throughout school on Thursday to help us get to know our class mates and teachers for next year. Primary 7 worked with Miss Mulholland on some activities to help them transition smoothly to their new schools in September. We welcomed some visitors to the P5/6/7 class who will be joining us next year and Mrs O’Reilly was so impressed with the great work on their STEM activity stations.

Primary 7 got a big surprise when they saw their mode of transport to dinner on Thursday evening! Many thanks to Mr Cahoon for organising the train to bring us to the Londonderry Arms. We thoroughly enjoyed the special evening with our wonderful Primary 7 pupils. Their manners, behaviour, conversation and great humour was a joy to be part of!
