Home Learning

In the January newsletter I explained that our approach to  home learning would be adapted in February.

P1 & 2 will continue to receive their tasks as they have done since the beginning of this academic session.  Primary 3 – 7 will receive their literacy & numeracy activities through their Google drive;  engagement with theses activities  will be at the discretion of children and families.   These adapted tasks will be available from today.

I hope that the amendments that have been made will now allow children & families to access  their home learning tasks at a time that is convenient to  personal circumstances.


Change Starts With Us

You don’t have to like me…

agree with me…

or enjoy the same things I do.
But you do have to respect me.

Respect for All – Anti bullying policy for website

On this 11th day of the 11th month, when we stop to remember those souls who gave service so that we could enjoy our freedom, we challenge our children to be kind.

Be kind, accept kindness and pay kindness forward.

We are looking for kindness role models this week, will it be you?
