Judo Taster Session – Primary 1

As part of Health Week primary 1 participated in a Judo taster session. It was a super morning learning about Judo and some the of the movements used in this ancient sport. We even learned a little Japanese!

 

SCIAF Thanks for your wonderful generosity.

We have raised a massive £518.71 which has been banked and paid over to SCIAF.  As we paid before,4th May, the government is doubling the amount raised. A huge thanks to the children and family for this support as our Lenten effort to look after our brothers and sisters around the world in need.

This will make a direct difference to lives of people supported by SCIAF.

 

P7 Camp

camp 1 camp 2 camp 3 camp 4

On the 11th of April Primary 7 left for camp. They left at 12:30 and arrived at 14:30. There was a stop half way there and the children enjoyed some fresh air!
Miss O’ Regan and Miss Kinsella came with the Primary 7 children to join in and have fun. They also helped with the activities.
When the Primary 7s arrived at camp, they got their bags and went to their dorms with their new dorm mates; the boys’ dorms were upstairs and the girls’ dorms were downstairs.
Every morning, the children woke up and went down for breakfast. They could choose from a wide variety of food. They then joined their activity groups to find out what their activities were for the day. They did their first two activities and then went for lunch. Again there were many options for lunch and these changed every day.
After lunch, there was some free time before their next activity. The children used this time to get ready for the afternoon. Once again there were more activities for the afternoon.
Dinner was wonderful! There were plenty of options. After dinner, the tuck shop would be open. The children got snacks and juice to eat and drink before their next activity. After all of this, the children went back up to their dorm where they could have a shower before they went to bed.
On Thursday, there was a disco with the other schools. The P7s said that the party was great fun and they had a very good time that night. On the last day the P7s had two activities and then after that, they put their bags on the bus and then went back home!
Camp was great fun and we would like to thank all the teachers and parents for helping us doing this. It will be a week that the children never forget!

JRSO Assembly

Well done to our JRSO’s from Primary 7. This morning they presented a Road Safety Assembly to the whole school. They spoke about the importance of crossing at safe places and made everyone aware of hazards that can be found on our roads. They also reminded us about cycle safety and the importance of wearing a helmet when you are cycling. This was good timing – as next week some of us will be bringing our bikes to school for Health Week. It was a good reminder to all – that you may not bring your bike to school unless you have a helmet and wear it when you are on your bike.
