We are pleased to inform you that a new Principal, Miss Rebecca Roe has been appointed Principal of Dunseverick Primary School. She is currently a P5 teacher in Ballywalter Primary School, from which she will be released to start on 4th January 2016. We look forward to welcoming her to Dunseverick Primary School and the community.

Mrs Smyth
Mrs Smyth has now commenced her maternity leave and Mrs Taggart has taken over as P7 teacher.  We would like to thank Mrs Smyth for all her hard work and dedication as acting principal of our school and hope she enjoys some rest and relaxation before Baby Smyth makes an appearance.

Open Afternoon
Our open afternoon for prospective Reception and P1 pupils will take place on Friday 20th November 2015 at 1pm.  If this date does not suit, there will an option for prospective parents to make an appointment to see around the school.  Please let prospective parents know of this date if their child is due to start school.

Theatre Trip Reminder
Just a little reminder of our upcoming trip to Aladdin in the Millennium Forum in Londonderry on Thursday 17th December.  The cost for this trip (subsidised) is £10 per child and any outstanding money or bookings should be paid in full on or before Friday 27th November.

If you have not already done so, please complete the attached form and return to your child’s teacher as soon as possible.

Children in Need
Friday 13th November 2015 is Children in Need day. Children in Need exists to change the lives of disadvantaged children and young people in the UK. We wish to support this worthwhile cause through a non-uniform day on Friday and would ask that children taking part bring a donation of £1.

Breakfast Club
Just another little reminder that our early morning breakfast club will continue to run until 18th December 2015.  It is a great facility to be able to offer to parents and we hope that parents will continue to avail of this service. We would encourage ALL children who come into school before 8.30am to make use of the Breakfast club and take Breakfast.  This way we can ensure that numbers are kept at a level to maintain the ability to offer this club.  Breakfast club will continue to run every morning from 8.00am – 8.30am costing £1.05 per child.

We have enjoyed the mild weather up to now, with the children being able to play outside every day. However, it is now cold and breezy in the playground.  Please ensure that the children bring a coat to school from now on so that they can go outside on a cold day.  Please also ensure that they are clearly labelled with your child’s name.

Milk and Dinner Money
We would appreciate it if parents could please send in correct money for dinner and milk on a Monday morning in the yellow envelopes provided. If you require more yellow envelopes please see Dawn in the office.

Dinners – £2.50 per day
Milk – £1.00 per week
