What a day! I can’t even begin to describe how proud I am of each and every one of our pupils. Their performances on Tuesday were outstanding. From shepherds and wise men, Mary and Joseph, Bible Readings, choral speaking to singing Silent Night in German, it really was amazing. A massive well done to all involved!

Theatre Trip

We are looking forward to our trip to the Theatre on Wednesday 20th . A few reminders:

  • Breakfast and break
    club will run as normal
  • Children need to bring a
    packed lunch

    collected from school at
  • Children will return from
    the Theatre at
    approximately 3.15pm
  • No buses will be
    available at 3.15pm so

Friends of Dunseverick have secured a slot for bag packing in Tesco, Ballymoney on Monday 18th December. We are asking for volunteers to help with the bag pack. A rota will be put on the front door. Please fill in your name at any time you would be available to help.

Inclement Weather
Weather forecasts are continuing to warn of severe weather and snowfall. We have an ‘Inclement Weather’ policy on our website which explains the procedures for closing school due to the weather (fingers crossed we won’t need to). I have sent out a text message to everyone today to make sure everyone is receiving texts. Text Messaging is our first communication method should we need to close school and I am asking that if you did not receive the text message can you email me, with your mobile number and I can add your number to this service We will do our best to inform parents about the yellow and blue buses but please understand these services are out of our control and can only pass on information as and when we receive it. Thank you again for your continued support and ensuring the safety of the children being paramount in every decision we make.
