COVID in School – If your child displays symptoms of COVID, keep them at home and do a Lateral Flow test.  If your child is tested for COVID, please forward a copy of the result of the PCR/Lateral Flow test to the school office.  If a positive result is returned, please contact the school office for further guidance.  If a child tests positive in any class, an email will be sent out to the parents/guardians of pupils in that class.  The guidance has changed; you DO NOT keep your child off school (unless your child has tested positive!), an updated information email will be sent out if there is a positive case in your child’s class.


First Communion – The First Communion will take place on Saturday 21st May at 10:00 a.m.  There have been no restrictions placed on people attending the ceremony, however, there may be guidance in place regarding face covering etc.  Once confirmation is received from Fr. Mc Dermott, all attending will be informed.  Primary 4 children have a separate note regarding the ceremony.  Choir children will also receive a separate note.


New Primary 1 Play Days – Week 3 of Induction Play Sessions is on Tuesday 24th May from 2:15-3:00 p.m.  Please note there will be no play session on the 31st May.


Netball Congratulations – Fantastic news for the girls’ netball team who have made it through to the NI Primary Schools’ Finals which will take place in Lisburn on Saturday 18th June.  Supporters welcome!


Soccer Congratulations – Congratulations to the school soccer team who came runners up in the C League Cup at the Vale Centre on Friday past.


School Show


Dress Rehearsals – The dress rehearsals scheduled for Friday 20th May at 10:00 a.m. for Cast A and Monday 23rd May at 10:00 a.m. for Cast B have been brought forward to 9:30 a.m. to accommodate canteen times.  Sorry for any inconvenience.  There is no need to purchase tickets for the dress rehearsals as these performances are free to view.  We would encourage parents who would like pre-school children to see the show to bring them along at these times as they will not be able to attend any of the evening performances.


Costumes – Please send in all remaining costumes as soon as possible in preparation for the dress rehearsals.  If you are having any difficulty sourcing costumes, please contact your child’s class teacher.


Tickets for School Show – Most ticket orders for the Wizard of Oz have been collected.  Remaining tickets please collect as soon as possible.  For those who placed their order, your tickets are now ready for collection and payment.  We have been able to fulfil all ticket requests made to date, if you require any additional tickets there are still some available to purchase.  Children from other primary schools may attend the performances, we would ask that no children from pre-school attend the evening performances, they may attend the dress rehearsals.  Children from Broadbridge Primary School are not allowed at the evening performances, they will see the show on the dress rehearsal days.
