A HUGE thank you to everyone who came along and supported our Christmas Market/Breakfast.

These events take a lot of organising behind the scenes, so a massive thank you also, to everyone involved- without volunteers like you events like these just wouldn’t happen ⭐️

It's not a pallet!

It's amazing how much you have grown by June!

The Action for Happiness calendar for July shares daily actions to help you find ways to bounce back. 💜

➡️ This month's theme is all about resilience and understanding how we can build skills that will help us to bounce back. We can't always predict or control what life throws at us, but we can build a range of skills and nurture our resources to help us respond flexibly, effectively deal with challenges, recover more quickly and even learn and grow as a result.

Your inner strength, resilience and determination will.
Let your light shine bright!
In this 'strange' year, we are so proud of you all.

Learning through play...this week our clerks of work drew and labelled their final version of their “stone shoot”. Great discussion, trial and error and testing until it was just right!
Alan was able to tell us that we could get some 3x4 timber in Cookstown.

Love this quotation, as a school that embraces outdoor learning!
'Frequent lack of attention to the external environment must come from some bizarre assumption that knowledge acquired indoors is superior to that gained outside.’ Tina Bruce

Parentkind and #BringItBackToPrimary want to hear from P6 parents in Northern Ireland

On Friday 14 May, the Association for Quality Education (AQE) announced when their 2021/2022 Common Entrance Assessments would be taking place in Northern Ireland - i.e. Sat 20 Nov, Sat 27 Nov & Sat 4 Dec 2021. They confirmed that further information for the registration will be provided this week (w/c 17th May) on their website.

Parentkind and #BringItBackToPrimary are meeting with AQE and the Education Minister Peter Weir MLA on Monday 24 May in a video call to discuss the AQE transfer test process for 2021. They are inviting parents of pupils in P6 to share queries or concerns that they might have about this year’s test and will put these directly to the Minister and Dr Darrin Barr (CEO) and Board Chairman Mr Ian Noad from AQE.

The video call will be recorded and will be shared on Parentkind’s website and notice of the video link (when live) will be shared via the Parentkind and Bring it Back to Primary social media channels.

Head of Parentkind Northern Ireland Jayne Thompson will be working with Naomi McBurney, Campaign Organiser of #BringItBackToPrimary, on collating and theming the questions and they are keen to hear from as many parents of current P6 pupils as possible. If you have a question that you would like them to ask about this year’s AQE transfer test, then please email them to Jayne or Naomi by 2pm Friday 21st May. All questions will be anonymised.

Email Jayne: [email protected]
Email Naomi: [email protected]

Please do not ponder over whether your question is a good one or a bad one, all questions are good and worth asking and they are happy to ask them on your behalf.

[05/16/21]   Could all end of year trophies and awards please be returned to school this week. Thank you.🏆🏆🏆
