Sponsored Walk
We are looking forward to this event being held on Friday 2nd October 2015. Any sponsorship money can be sent into class teachers at any time.  Money raised will be helping to purchase an interactive whiteboard for our Primary 1 classroom and also to subsidise our Christmas Theatre Trip.

Parent Interviews
This year, interviews will take place from Monday 19th October until Thursday 22nd October.  There will also be limited interview times available on Tuesday evening until 7.30pm.

Book Fair
Our scholastic book fair is due to run again this year during the week beginning 5th October.  The fair will be open for purchases on the Thursday and Friday mornings from 8.30am – 9.30am and on the Thursday and Friday afternoons from 2pm – 3.15pm.  Wednesday is a browsing day for pupils only during the school day.  If parents are unable to attend the Book Fair, they can send money with pupils, so that they can purchase a book with their class teacher.

If you have requested a Wednesday letter via email, hopefully you have been receiving them.  There are a few parents who unfortunately haven’t been.  If this is you, can you please email me ( and I will hopefully get any problems with emails sorted. Thanks.

Christmas Theatre Trip
We have booked to take the children to see Aladdin in the Millennium Forum in Londonderry on Thursday 17th December.  Approximate costs for this trip (subsidised) is £10 per child.  More details and payment options will be available next week.  This is a fantastic opportunity for children and we hope as many children will be able to experience a theatre visit.
