We are really looking forward to our Christmas performances next week. A big thank you to all the pupils, staff and parents for helping prepare the children for both these events.

Christmas Gift Boxes
We hope the children are enjoying decorating the Christmas gift boxes and parents making them.  All gift boxes are to be returned to school no later than Tuesday 19th December.

Class Assembly
Mrs Bell’s P4/5 class will be taking assembly on Thursday 25th January at 9.30am. Parents and friends of children in P4/5 will be invited to come along and enjoy the assembly and enjoy some tea/coffee and scones after.  More details will follow in the New Year.

Unfortunately, our school is being hit by a lot of illness at the moment.  We hope the children will feel much better soon.  Please be advised that children should not return to school until 48hours after the last bout of illness.  This is to let the child fully recover and prevent further spread.

If you haven’t already checked, a letter was sent home on Tuesday with lots of information and important dates.  Something to pin to the fridge!

Movie & Munch Night
Thank you to Friends of Dunseverick for our organising our Movie and Munch night.  The children had a great evening and enjoyed yummy hot chocolate and popcorn

Tesco Bag Pack

We still need volunteers!
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.  We are also hoping to take our P5/6 class to Tesco on the same day to do some carol singing.

Inclement Weather
Weather forecasts have been warning 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.

Christmas Dinner
Thank you to Judith, Rosemary and Claire for a delicious Christmas lunch which we all enjoyed.

Christmas Jumper Day
On Friday 15th December we are asking all children to wear a Christmas Jumper to school.  Any money raised will be donated to NSPCC.

Behaviour Award
Well done to Rec/P1 and P4/5 who received the behaviour reward in Assembly today.  They will enjoy some extra playtime.
