I would like to take this opportunity of welcoming everyone back to a new school year. I trust that those pupils who are new to the school will have an enjoyable, educational time with us. The new school year started with a welcome to 30 new pupils in Primary 1.

A 'Zooper' day out for P6

On Thursday 11th June, P6 visited Belfast Zoo.  We are learning all about the rainforest in school and were therefore excited to find out more about the animals that live there.  When we first arrived we went straight for a talk on the rainforest with Maureen.  It was very informative and told us a lot about how deforestation is affecting the animals in the rainfores

Bun Sale

Last week, Primary 6 and 7 (those not away on School Tour) were busy making buns with their classroom assistants.  They then held a bun sale on Friday morning, to raise money for our School Charity, Stand By Me.  The sale was a sell-out success, with all children in the school enjoying a tasty bun at breaktime.  We raised a total of £73.52.

Bike Rides on Brighter Nights

With the brighter evenings of May and June finally here, now is the perfect time for the whole family to get out and about on foot, bike or scooter.  As you know we have been promoting active travel to school over the past year, working with Sustrans. The Sustrans website can provide you with a list of safe cycling and walking routes.
