‘Just 4 Parents’ Course
Unfortunately the above course has been postponed due to a lack of numbers attending. Future dates may be rescheduled by Mrs McAuley, who delivers the programme. Parents will be informed of these.

Staff Information
Mrs Browne will be returning to school on Friday 27th February 2014. Her role at present will involve providing Educational Support each Friday morning to pupils throughout the school. Mrs Smyth will be returning to full time teaching duties from Monday 3rd March 2014 in P6/7. As a staff, we would all like to thank Mrs McCluskey for her time at Dunseverick and are sorry to see her time with us ending. She has fitted in so well and will be sadly missed by staff, pupils and parents. We wish her well for the future!
