Notes for Parents & Carers:

6 December 2017

 

Welcome to December!

We all know what's coming up and we're all looking forward to bringing you much joy in the build up to the festive season.

Firstly this month, however, here is the all-important link to the P1 admissions information (and form) from the Education Authority website:

P1 admission information

Remember our Open Day is on Friday 8 December, with tours at 9.30am, 11.15am and 1.15pm.

All prospective parents are welcome; our own parents who want to visit are welcome in the afternoon, too.

Please come and visit - the only way to view a school is when the children are here.  They make school a special place for those who work here, as well as those who learn here...

 

And now, as Open Day approaches, here's a small selection of photos from 'around' our wonderful school...

We have P1 children busy on their Homes topic;  P2 children enjoying a visit from an ambulance, complete with paramedics; we have P3 children enjoying Scientific Sue (see earlier tweets) and active learning in literacy; there are P4 pupils engaged in their WW2 topic (as evacuees); P5 children enjoying a visit to Comber Fire Station; and P6 pupils working hard - and together - during their Skills-Based Learning on the topic of Violent Earth.

Finally, as we close the term, here are some photos from our Christmas Services (P4/5 first; P6/7 second), as well as from our Nativity, The Gigantic Star.  All were a true testament to the talents, skills and, above all, effort, of our children and staff.  Evidence of our PERMA and Growth Mindset abounds!

As a wee footnote to end 2017, check out the link below to read some exciting news about one of our recent past pupils, Ben Watson.  We take great pride in recognising achievements of all our past pupils, so please let us know of any that we may not hear about directly.  Our new set of special pupil-created Congratulations Cards will be ready in the new year, so we want to make sure they find a home where earned!
