We had great news on Thursday - we have just been awarded our 8th Discover Science Award. Thank you to everyone for all the hard work which went into this year's project and especially to Mrs Gourley for overseeing and organising the project. This year's folder is on display in the entrance foyer. Please take time to have a look.
The programme is proving to be an overwhelming success. So far, most of the fruit and vegetables have been eaten enthusiastically by most children. The children have been making comments such as 'Oh, these are quite nice actually' and 'I didn't like tomatoes until today'. We hope you will continue to encourage the children.
Unfortunately our visit from the cartoonist had to be cancelled on Wednesday. We hope to rearrange it for a later date.
Our Sports Blitz also had to be rearranged last week. We hope it will now take place on Friday 10th May.
Visit to Brownhall
As part of our work for our third Green Flag, the children in the Senior Room will be visiting Brownhall on Wednesday 8th May. We thank Mr John Hamilton for facilitating our visit. We also thank Inland Fisheries and in particular, Paul Gallagher for arranging this trip for us.
Beidh triúr pháiste ó Rang 5/6 ag taisteal go dtí an Ghaeltacht ar 14ú Bealtaine. Ta suil againn go mbainfidh siad taitneamh as an turas. Three children from 5th/6th Class will be travelling to the Gaeltacht on 14th May. We hope they enjoy their trip.
Standardised Tests will be carried out during the fortnight beginning 20th May. Please try to avoid all absences and appointments during this time.
Thank you all for your responses to our Literacy Questionnaire. We also asked the children to complete a similar one. I will shortly be sending home details of the responses and a summary report on the results of our evaluation of English in our school.
