Our assembly started with a prayer service to help us prepare for Easter. The children reflected on the 14 stations of the cross and said a prayer for each station which was led by a number of pupils in Key Stage 2.

Assembly continued with the Speech and Drama festival participants performing their poems in front of the whole school. They did a wonderful job and everyone enjoyed listening to the different poems. A huge congratulations again to all those who took part in the festival you did the school proud. 

We celebrated the success of the Credit Union quiz who made it to the next stage of the competition but were narrowly beaten. Well done again to all those in the team.

Children who took part in the Reading Partnership Programme were presented with a certificate for all their hard work and dedication.

 

This has been a very busy term for all our pupils who have been working extremely hard.  So we would like to wish them a restful and fun filled Easter break.

 

Happy Easter! 

 

Cake Sale

The staff and pupils would like to thank the coaches from the local GAA club who visit our school every week and coach our boys and girls in Key Stage 2. The school would like to show its appreciation to the football club by having a cake sale in the school on Thursday 27th April from 2:15p.m to raise funds for the club. We are asking all our families to bake something for this and come along to support the event. All items can be left in school on the morning of the 27th April. All support would be greatly appreciated.

 

We are very excited to be getting a new covered outdoor play area!

 

Congratulations to our Credit Union winners!
