Craft Club

Over the last couple of weeks, the pupils at Craft Club have been working hard to make Pom Pom key rings.  It was quite tricky but everyone worked together and now they look amazing!  

 

Year 4 Shared Education

Year 4 had a fantastic first day of Shared Education.  Everyone was buzzing after the fun activities led by Be Unique Drama Group and it was great to see so many new friendships!  We are all looking forward to meeting up again soon! 

 

Christmas Card Competition 

This year we are celebrating our 10th anniversary as an integrated school.  With over 150 entries to the competition, it was hard to pick just 10 winners!  Well done to these pupils who designed a Christmas card with 10 years of integration as a theme. 

 

Christmas Jumper Day 

Everyone had a great day celebrating Christmas Jumper Day on Friday 13th December.  We raised a fantastic £177.50 for Save the Children.  Thank you to everyone for your support. 

  

Extra-Curricular Programme - Term 1B

  

Extra Curricular Activities - Term 1B 

There are so many fun activities available after school.  Take a look at a few from this term. 

  

Meet the teams

Pupil voice is very important within our school.  Meet the teams for this school year.  

  

Global Rhythms 

This group of instrumentalists thoroughly enjoyed the performance by the Ulster Orchestra. The orchestra performed dance music from all over the world. The children listened to music from Russia, France, Spain, Ireland, Mexico, America, Austria, Scotland, America and France. There was great excitement as children listened to Richard Sidwell's Disco Symphonic Overture and participated in a disco dance. Who knows in years to come, some of our young instrumentalists from today may go on in the future to play music professionally  - maybe even with the Ulster Orchestra!

 

  

10 Years of Integration

This year, we are celebrating 10 years of integration.  To kick off our celebrations, Year 5, 6 and 7 discussed the benefits of integration.  

 

Our October theme was Kindness.

Together we thought about sharing kindness with others close to home          

and also with those that live further away.

Our Year 1 - 4 pupils supported the Shoe Box Appeal with Drop Inn Ministries.

Thank you to Mrs Chambers and Mrs McAuley who came to collect all our shoe boxes.

Our Year 5 - 7 pupils collected items for the Ballymoney Food Bank. 

Thank you to Peter Rollins for collecting all the donated items. 

 

European Day of Languages 

On 25th September we celebrated European Languages Day by reading stories in French and Spanish, singing songs and learning some key words.  

 

Year 1 School Dinner Days

The two Year One classes enjoyed their School Dinner Day. 

A big thank you to Collette and her team for their help and

support in organising these special Year 1 events.

 

September Whole School Assembly 

 

On Wednesday the 4th September we enjoyed our first whole school assembly. We focused on what makes our school special, learnt a 'Back to School Prayer' and a new song called 'Shine'. We finished our assembly with singing Happy Birthday to all those children who would be celebrating a birthday in September and four Year 7 pupils read the School Creed.
