Congratulations – To the boys’ soccer team and their coach Mr Bogle, who nearly lost his coaching role after a recent spate of heavy defeats but won the 7-a-side competition at the Vale Centre yesterday, defeating Drumachose 1-0 in the final, to bring home the silverware. The girl’s soccer team came runners up after being defeated by a solitary goal in the final against Drumachose Primary School. A great day out for all. Thanks to Faughanvale Primary School for hosting the tournament.


School Disco – Thanks to the Parents & Friends’ Association and staff for organising and attending the ‘Easter Disco’ on Saturday 23rd March, a special word of thanks to those parents who volunteered for the first time. Thanks to DJ Gabriel for once again making the evening an enjoyable and memorable night for all.

Primary 4 Holy Communion – The primary 4 pupils continue with their work and rehearsals in school for receiving the sacrament of Holy Communion.
