Welcome Back

We welcome all of our pupils back after the Summer break, especially the boys and girls in Primary 1 who have joined St Patrick’s.  We wish you all every success in this new school year.


Infant Entrance

Parents are reminded that if their child is late arriving at school they should gain access through the main school entrance.  Please do not send your child up to the infant area if the playground has cleared and all of the children are in class.


Drop-Off Point

Please do not park in the drop-off point or block the gates of the school.  Access to the main building must be kept clear at all times.


Curriculum Meetings

Curriculum Information Meetings take place on 19th September 2011.

The P1-P3 meeting will run from 2.15 – 3.00pm and the P4-P7 meeting will run from 3.15 – 4.00pm.  Parents are encouraged to make every effort to attend.  However, should these arrangements not suit due to work commitments etc, please contact the school and an alternative date may be agreed.


New School Year Just Around The Corner

As the summer holidays draw to an end we look foward to a new school year.  We hope that everyone will return refreshed and with great enthusiasm so that they learn lots of new things and try their best in eveything they do.

There have been more changes to the school, which we feel certainly enhances the environment for everyone.


June Newsletter

June 2011


Safety in the Sun

As we approach the final month of the school year and look forward to enjoying some good weather parents are reminded of the importance of making sure children are safe in the sun.  Apply sun creams before children come to school and provide a hat to keep the sun of your child’s face.  Wally and Wise will be visiting the school on 23rd June to promote safety in the sun.


Labelling of Clothing

It would be much appreciated if parents could check their child’s clothing to ensure that they are clearly labelled.  During the warm summer days children take of jumpers especially and labelling is a big help in finding the rightful owners of the clothing.


Sports Day

Sports Day takes place on Tuesday 21st June in Assumption Grammar School from 9.30am to 12.30pm. Instead of a hot meal the school meals kitchen will be providing a packed lunch which can be eaten on the sport field. The Parents Support Group will be providing refreshments with all proceeds going to their fundraising efforts.


Gaelic Team

School Gaelic team took part in a 9 a-side blitz on Tuesday 24th of May.

Fire Service Visit

Fire service visit our school.

Members of the Fire Service visited our school as part of their fundraising effortsfor Heart, Chest and Stroke.

A team of Fire Officers are cycling around Northern Ireland , callling into two  primary schools daily and visiting all 82 Fire Stations.Our school was chosen for a visit.

During the visit, the children were told about fire safety and the importance of leading a healthy lifestyle.The presentation from Fire officer Noel was excellent and all the children learnt very important safety messages.A big thank you goes to Fire Officer Blaney for bringing along his colleagues.

The children also met 'Chester' the monkey and his friend Jessica Perry who told us how we can help the Heart, Chest and Stroke charity to raise much needed funds.

There will be a non-uniform day on Friday 3rd June 2011 and we would ask that each child make a donation of £1 for the privilege of wearing their ordinary clothes on that day.
