Some photos of what the children in the Nursery have been up to over the past few weeks!
The Big Pedal begins next Monday, the 20th March, and will last for two weeks. We are encouraging all our pupils from P1 - P7 to either cycle or scoot to school on these dates. Every day each class will total up how many children cycled or scooted and this information will be uploaded to the BIG PEDAL website. Daily prizes are available!

Coming up to Easter we are going to be have a few fund raising competitions running within school which we hope the children will enjoy.
Our competitions and activities include:
Easter Hamper: raffled at £1 per ticket
Easter Anagram sheet: £1 per sheet
Guess How many eggs in the jar: 25p a guess
There will also be a ‘special visitor’ coming into school before the children get off on their Easter Break who has informed us he has a treat for all!
A note will be sent home next week about this.
Tomorrow in school (Thursday 16th March) we are all going green!
All children are encouraged to wear green clothing into school as part of this non uniform day.
The children are to bring in a £1 donation for the day.
All the proceeds of this will be donated towards the upcoming P7 Lurgan Tigers Rugby Trip.
We thank you in anticipation of your support.
During the Fairtrade Fortnight, the children in P6 had Gemma and Emma in from Armagh Banbridge and Craigavon Borough Council.
The two ladies had a PowerPoint concerning Fairtrade and played a retailer consumer game with the children.
Both classes thoroughly enjoyed the experience and look forward to learning more about Fairtrade in Primary .
Thank you Gemma and Emma
On Thursday 7th March EVERY child who attends P7 football practice got a chance to represent the school.
Each P7 child "pulled on the jersey" and took part in a tournament with our P7 friends from Dromara (Fairhill Primary).
Each Boy had five games in total, lasting 10 minutes each.
The boys seemed to really enjoy the day which ended with a wee snack of crisps, kindly sponsored by Mr Brown.
Well done to all concerned

Primary One have been exploring the topic of 999. They have especially enjoyed visits from the 3 main emergency services – The Police, The Fire-Fighters and the Paramedic. Highlights have been trying on uniforms, squirting water with the fire-fighters’ hose and going up in the ambulance lift!
