Cáisc mhaith daoibh! Happy Easter!

A chairde,

On behalf of all of the staff here in Naíscoil agus Bunscoil Bheanna Boirche I would like to wish our entire school community a Happy Easter / Cáisc Shona! This has been a long and an extremely busy term in our school's life. Our pupils have enjoyed engaging in numerous Shared Education "Forest School" Activities with our partner schools.  Many also enjoyed success in Féis an Dúin. Our Rang 6/7 pupils, in particular, have been exceptionally busy mastering their swimming skills, participating in Indoor Football tournaments, taking part in STEM workshops, performing concerts, winning awards for drama and quizzes as well as completing their normal studies of the curriculum! This term we also achieved "Fairaware" status as a Fairtrade school, due to the excellent efforts of our School Council.

Some of our staff have also been very busy, attending Mindfulness & Makaton courses or presenting at the C2K E-Learning conference (to show all the other schools in Northern Ireland how we make effective and innovative use of ICT).

In addition to all these activities we also ran a Book Fair last month which earned £691, meaning that the school will now be entitled to 50% (£345.50) worth of additional books for the classes.  Go raibh céad maith agaibh! Many thanks!

Finally, the progress of the building project to provide us with 2 new classrooms is continuing at a rapid pace. The Department of Education will soon decide which company should complete this work. We hope that these new classrooms will be in place for the next school year.

Beirigí bua is beannacht,

Survey about access to Disabled Play Areas

A thuismitheoiri,

The Children's and Young People's Strategy team from the Department of Education have commissioned a survey of play based opportunities for disabled children.

We would encourage all parents and carers to take part in the survey below and to share it with any other relevant persons.…
