P1TM Celebrate Chinese’s New Year

Andy’s Room is Officially Opened


On Monday 20th November we were delighted to have District Inspector, Mr Belvins, officially open our amazing nurture/wellness space, named ‘Andy’s Room ‘ after the well known character from Disney’s much loved Toy Story.

It is a wonderful new addition to our school, which offers a relaxing ‘hideout’ and a truly magical and serene experience for the children. It can be used by pupils with anxiety issues, or simply as a treat. And is already much lived by both staff and pupils.

P3 enjoy some choice and chill out time in Andy’s Room

Christmas Cracker Day 2021

It’s safe to say that pupils had a ‘cracking time’ on Christmas cracker day. It was great to see so many pupils in their Christmas jumpers, Santa hats and festive socks snd head gear! Many pupils also enjoyed a treat a break time or got to swop seats for the day!  Not only that it was also Christmas dinner day!  Delicious!  Many thanks to the kitchen staff and supervisors.

A huge thank you to all the pupils and parents for your very generous donations today.  All money raised will be donated to Cash4Kids to help and support children here in Northern Ireland.
