Month: June 2017

Wednesday Letter – 28th June 2017

Farewell
Today we said a fond (and possibly teary) goodbye to our Primary 7 pupils. The staff have many fond memories of the tiny 4 and 5 year olds who started Dunseverick all those years ago and we are so impressed by the mature young people they have grown to become. We wish Primary 7 all the very best as they embark on their next great adventure and hope they will remember the lessons they learned and cherish the friendships they made here!

Friends of Dunseverick
Thank you to all the pupils, parents and staff who have given their time and donations to school. We have raised an incredible amount of over £3500.

Charities
You have raised £773.80 for charities this school year; including NSPCC, Alzheimers, Cancer Fund for Children and Comic Relief – Well Done!

Friday 30th June
This will be a non-uniform day for children. School will finish at 12 noon and both buses will run as normal.
