Notices for week beginning May 13th May

10th May 2019

Testing for all children from P3 to P7 begins this week for the next 2 weeks. As I mentioned before, please try to ensure that your child is at school every day and do not sign them out early as all children must have completed tests before results can be obtained.

This week we are having our annual residential trip for P7s I know the children are really looking forward to this trip. I have also asked that no electronic devices be bought with the children this is for a number of reasons including Child Safeguarding.

Next Saturday is also an exciting day for our P4 children as they make their First Holy Communion. The children and their teachers will be practising in the coming week to ensure every thing runs smoothly on the day so again can I please ask that you do not sign the children out early.
