School Books – Please return all school and library books before the end of term.  This is extremely important as they are needed for next year’s classes.


School Football Kit – We have quite a few pieces of the school kit missing and would appreciate it if they could be returned before the end of next week.  We appreciate that your child may have their own kit, but our shorts have the school crest on them to the front.  Our football tops do not have any numbers on the back but all the children’s tops have and are also initialled.  We would ask that these are checked for and returned as soon as possible.  Thank you.


Gaelic Team – A huge congratulations to the School Gaelic team who were narrowly beaten in the final of Francis Lagan Finals at Owenbeg. on Friday past. They have made us so proud of all their achievements this year.


School Reports – A copy of your child’s school report has been sent out today. Please sign the accompanying letter and return to the class teacher on Monday. If you wish to speak to the class teacher a time will be allocated for a phone call on Tuesday 27th June.


P7 Gortatole Residential Trip – Well done to all the P7 children who went to Gortatole this week.  They were extremely well behaved, mannerly and cooperative.  They took part enthusiastically in all the activities and showed great teamwork.  We hope they have made memories that will last a lifetime and enjoyed their final trip away with Broadbridge P.S.  We wish them all the best as they transition into their new schools.


McGinnis Group – Are working with a charity called Shalom Center for Conflict Resolution & Reconciliation, Africa (Shalom) and are raffling a 2020 Ford Fiesta to raise funds. Tickets are £20 and available at the school office, car is on view at Mc Ginnis Group office, all proceeds will go to the charity. Shalom focuses on the root cause of violence in the tribal lands of eastern Africa. It was created in 2009 in the wake of persistent widespread violence and dislocation across northern Kenya, and in the aftermath of the disputed Kenyan elections. Shalom has made a major impact on peace initiatives in this vital strategic of Africa.

ParentPay – Please ensure that all payments for outstanding items on the ParentPay system are made before the end of the school year so that the year 2022-23 can be closed off. Thank you.

Lost Property – We have lots of school jumpers that have not been claimed that are in perfect condition. They will be outside the Master’s hall on Monday from Monday. Please come and take if you wish as they will be disposed of at the end of the year. It could save you buying them over the summer.
