CONGRATULATIONS P.4

A big congratulations is extended to all our P.4 pupils who made their 1st Holy Communion on Saturday. All pupils contributed magnificently to the Mass itself and evidently prepared diligently for their day. Hopefully they all had a day which will remain long in their memory. Well done all!

Many thanks also to all those who made up the choir for the 1st Communion Mass. It is indeed very gratifying to know that the school community will rally together on such an occasion to ensure the event is so special. On a similar theme, thanks to the members of the Parents’ Association for their splendid efforts in providing refreshments afterwards back in the school – it really was very much appreciated.

CROSS-COUNTRY

Well done to our Cross-Country runners who performed so well in Greencastle last week. Although no silverware was brought home, two individuals in particular performed admirably in their races. In the girls’ race Lucy McCann finished in 6th place, while in the boys’ race, Brandon Downey conceding 2 years to most in the field, finished just outside the medals in 4th place. But well done to all who attended and completed a very gruelling run on a very warm morning.

GOOD LUCK CAROL

Good luck to Carol McKnight who travels to Belfast on Thursday to participate in the Ulster Final of the Eason’s Spelling Bee competition. We have no doubt that Carol will acquit herself very well….enjoy your day Carol!

ALLIANZ CUMANN NA MBUNSCOIL

Our footballers participate in the Allianz Cumann na mBunscoil schools competition tomorrow morning in Tattyreagh GAC. Good luck to all involved.

SCHOOL CLOSURE

Just a wee reminder that school is closed next Monday-Wednesday (28-30th May) but will re-open on Thursday at the usual time.

WELL DONE EOGHAN

Congratulations to Eoghan McGrath who played in the half-time exhibition game at
Healy Park yesterday. Eoghan certainly enjoyed the occasion and gave a very good account of himself. Well Done Eoghan!

FIRST HOLY COMMUNION

Good luck to all our P.4 pupils who will be making their First Holy Communion on Saturday in St. Mary’s Church, Drumragh at 12.30pm. All pupils have been preparing diligently for their big day, so hopefully the sun will shine and add to the enjoyment of the day. Pupils and their families are invited back to the school afterwards for light refreshments and the opportunity for family photographs. Exact arrangements for P.4 pupils (re. seating etc) will be issued later in the week. As always, we ask as many pupils (P.5-P.7) to assist with the choir so as to add to the sense of occasion.

SCHOOL PLACINGS

Our P.7 pupils will get notification of their secondary school placings on Saturday.

Should any parent not receive their letter, there is a hotline available for parents to contact to confirm placings. The number to call is 028 2566 1379 between the hours of 3.30 – 5.00pm.

GOOD LUCK EOGHAN

Good luck to P.7 student Eoghan McGrath who was recently selected to participate in the half-time exhibition game at Sunday’s big Championship match between Tyrone and Monaghan. Good luck Eoghan and enjoy the occasion!

CONGRATULATIONS CAROL

A huge congratulations is extended to P.7 pupil Carol McKnight who became Tyrone Champion in the Easons Spelling Bee competition held in the school last Thursday. The standard of spelling had to be seen to be believed, but Carol fought off all her opposition before triumphing by virtue of spelling ‘ultrafastidious’ correctly! Carol will now represent Tyrone in the Ulster final to be held in Belfast on 24th May. Well done Carol!

SPEAK OUT! STAY SAFE!

The school will be hosting a ‘Speak Out! Stay Safe!’ information day on Thursday. This programme will be delivered by Lisa Norris from the NSPCC. All pupils will attend an age related assembly on Thursday when they will be given the knowledge they need to stay safe from abuse. An additional parental workshop is being held in the school on Thursday afternoon from 2.15 – 3.15pm in relation to internet safety. Representatives from mobile network O2 will be in attendance to help educate parents in how to protect their children from online dangers in this increasingly technological world.

SCHOOL PHOTOGRAPHER

The school photographer will be in school on Friday morning. All pupils should ensure full uniform is worn.

SCHOOL HOLIDAY

The school is closed next week from Monday 7th – Wednesday 9th May. School will re-open on Thursday at the usual time.
