Bridge I.P.S Parents Group
The Parents Group organise many events throughout the school year, such as, school discos, Spooktacular Hallowe'en activities for all pupils and prize draws to name but a few. A number of parents regularly attend the meetings and work hard to bring ideas for fundraising together. Their efforts greatly assist what we are able to do in school and ensure that our pupils have lots of fun!
When your child joins Bridge Integrated Primary School, you as parents, automatically become members of the parents group. So if you are feeling up to a challenge and would like to assist the efforts of those parents who already freely give of their time to fundraise and deliver extra resources and events for your children, come along and get involved.

Donation for Playground Equipment
Thank you to our parents group who have kindly made a massive donation of £700 towards the purchase of new playground equipment.
The School Council have worked tirelessly on behalf of all pupils to ensure each playground has adequate playground equipment. Zach P.7R (chairperson) and Brooke P.7YR (vice chairperson) wrote a letter to the parents group, asking for a donation. No doubt every class will be very excited with the possibility of ordering their own equipment. Fun times ahead!
The most recent events; the Hallowe'en disco for P.5-7 and the Hallowe'en 'Spooktacular' were both a huge success. The Hallowe'en disco for P.5-P.7 on Thursday 19th October was enjoyed by all who attended. Many pupils, with lots of help from their parents, came dressed to impress in many amazing costumes and fantastic face painting, which made it hard to distinguish who was who! It is safe to say that there was lots of chat in class the next day and pupils had a ball! In P.6 they are already talking about when the next disco will be!
There was a huge turn out at the 'Spooktacular' on Friday 20th October, which as fantastic to see. Pupils enjoyed lots of fun 'Hallowe'en' themed activities such as delving into a bowl full of spaghetti to find an eyeball and daring to put their hands in mystery boxes to guess what was inside. Families enjoyed coming in fancy dress and trying out the many games, whilst also enjoying a few treats!
The amazing 'balloon' witch was made by Mr Twister and was donated to the school for these two events.
We are indeed indebted to all of the dedicated parents, who give of their time to organise these events and also to all of the children and parents who support them.
A huge thank-you to everyone for your support!
Sharing Resources with Donard School
After the two very successful Hallowe'en events the Parents group decided to kindly donate a variety of resources and games they made to Donard School so that their pupils could also have lots of Hallowe'en fun! They also passed on the balloon witch, kindly donated by Darren Mortiboy (Mr Twister). Here's hoping that this little act of kindness brings enjoyment to all.
