Blooming Marvellous
A big shout out to Bushmills Garden Centre for kindly donating plants, seeds and hanging baskets. We can’t wait to see the results when our gardeners get their hands on them!

Plea for Plants
If you are stocking up with your winter plants and spring bulbs we would love it if you could pop one extra in your basket for us. We are hoping to plant up a number of areas around school and would really appreciate any help.

After School Clubs
There are still a few spaces left in some of the after school clubs.  Any remaining reply slips should be sent to school on or before Friday 16th September.

Funs with Drums and Spanish still have to be confirmed. We will send confirmation to parents as soon as possible.

Healthy Habits
Every Friday we are introducing a focus fruit and vegetable for the children to try.  During September we will be focusing on strawberries and carrots.

We would like to say a massive thank you to Glasses Fruit Shop in Bushmills for sponsoring our healthy habits and providing the fruit and vegetables each Friday.


Translink have contacted the school asking that parents/guardians are at the bus stop on time for pick up. This avoids any unnecessary distress for children and the drivers are on a schedule for other pickups.

Friends of Dunseverick
We would love to harness the power of friends and parents to organise a few events/fundraisers throughout the year. A note will be going home for your chance to express an interest and get your thinking caps on!

Board of Governors
We currently need a parent representative for our Board of Governors.  If anyone would be interested please email a ‘blurb’ about yourself and why you would be interested to by Monday 19th September.

Violin & Woodwind
We are delighted to welcome Mr Elliott and Miss McDermott back to school this year to provide specialist music tuition to some of our pupils.  We look forward to hearing the children play at upcoming school events.

Community Notices
Mosside Parent and Toddler returns Wednesday 14th September, meeting in Mosside Presbyterian Church Hall from 10am -12noon. All parents and carers welcome. For further details please contact Joanne on 07762673681.
