Buddy Trip to the Beach!

Reception, P1 and their buddies had a fantastic morning at Portballintrae beach. We built sand castles (and mottes), splashed in the water and dug big holes. We’ve all had a fantastic year getting to know our buddies and I know the Reception and P1 children will be sad to see their P7 buddies leave tomorrow. What a fantastic way to say goodbye to one another!!

Games Night & Duck Race

On Thursday 27th June between 6.30pm and 8.00pm, we are holding a games night on the beach at Portballintrae – a get together for all the pupils before we break up for our summer holidays. Families can bring their own picnic/bbq and children must be accompanied by an adult during the night. On this night we will be having our duck race. There are still a number of ducks for sale. Ducks will cost £2.50 each and the prize for the winning duck is a mid-week overnight stay in the Bushmills Inn with breakfast. We have also been given a voucher for Flash in the Pan in Bushmills which we will use for second place. Please contact Dawn if you would like to purchase any ducks.

P4 Meeting

A meeting will be held on Tuesday 25th June at 2.30pm. This is for the parents of our current P4 children

Rathlin trip

We had a fantastic day in Rathlin despite a choppy sailing on the way over and to be told by a member of the ferry staff that we had the most well behaved group of children they have had on the ferry certainly putting the icing on the cake. Well done.
