Children in Crossfire Competition

Keep this entries coming!  We can't wait to see them.

COMPETITION TIME

Children in Crossfire need our help!

Children in Crossfire are currently supporting communities in Ethiopia during this extremely tumultuous time.

Mr Byrne from St Ronan’s P.S. and Mrs Davis from Bridge IPS travelled to Ethiopia as part of their Connecting Classrooms project to visit schools and develop friendships with the schools’ teachers. With these links in mind, it is part of our ethos as compassionate schools to help those in need, both locally and globally.

COVID-19 is affecting Ethiopia at the same time as the worst plague of locusts in 70 years, which is decimating crops and livelihoods.

Children in Crossfire are fundraising to support St Luke’s Hospital in Ethiopia, who are on the front line of both these crises.

As both schools have school partnerships in Ethiopia now, we are asking families of both school communities here in Co. Down to do 2 things:

- Text STLUKE to 70085 to donate a one-off £3.  

- Colour in the picture which was emailed to you or made available on SEESAW or Google Classroom on Monday 11th May. A winning picture will be chosen, and it will be used as the front cover for a book Children in Crossfire are publishing soon.       PICTURE

This is very a difficult time for us all, so we ask that you do what you can to support our friends and their families in Ethiopia.

 

Who is up for a virtual sports' day?

IMPORTANT INFORMATION

RE: Accelerated Reading P.5-P.7

Following the latest Renaissance advice, we are now able to offer AR quizzes at home. Users will be prompted once they log in with their current login info to create a new password so that there will be added security for use outside the school intranet. Please ensure your child records their new password so that they do not forget it.

To access the website simply click on the image below.

FREE NON-FICTION BOOKS

Renaissance, the company we access Accelerated Reading from, has made their Non-Fiction books available during this time.  All these books are audio books and they offer a wide range of information for all reading abilities.  The fact that they are audio will also support children who find reading more challenging.  

Many of the titles are American versions so please check titles in www.bookfinder.co.uk to ensure we have the relevant quiz here.
