Congratulations to the whole school community for being awarded the Sustrans Bronze Award for Excellence in Sustainable Travel! Thank you to everyone who participated in the many events held this year. We are looking forward to seeing you at future events.
Check out the Eco Committee who were at Stormont on Wednesday 14th June for the 'Wheelie Big Challenge' finals. We were delighted to win 1st prize and will be putting our £500 towards a new bike shelter.
The documents below show how we have increased our recycling this year and worked to encourage active travel to and from school.
We held a 'Go Green' Day in April to raise awareness of environmental issues. Pupils dressed in green or created their own costumes from recycled materials and we all made an extra special effort to walk, cycle and scoot to school.
P2 held an assembly to tell us all about how we can make a difference in our world and we launched our charity fundraising event for 'The Ten Foundations.' Through this work, we will be helping to promote sustainable development and supporting families and children in the Philippines to earn a living.
Well done everyone!
Well done to all those children who walked, cycled or scooted to school in their high-visibility vests for 'Healthy Heart, Happy Heart Day.' The vests were provided by Sustrans' Active Travel Programme and funded by the Public Health Agency.
Check out the photos of our visit from Captain Cleanup who taught us how to keep Belfast Tidy. Remember 'Don't drop it, stop it!'
We had great fun walking, cycling and scooting to school wearing our Santa hats in December. Well done to all the boys and girls who made an extra special effort to get active that day. Keep it up!

Cash for Clobber
We will be gathering all your clobber again this January in order to raise money for the PTA so please keep any old or unwanted clothes, shoes (pairs only), handbags, hats, scarves, bed linen and curtains until the new year. Cash for clobber bags will issue in the coming weeks and can be returned to our school reception between 3rd – 13th January.
We are delighted to have been chosen to take part in the Sustrans 'Active School Travel Programme', starting November 2016. Sustrans is a leading sustainable transport charity which encourages children to make more journeys to school by cycling, walking or scooting. Our Sustrans Active Travel officer, Beverley, will help us to get active by organising different activities and events throughout the year. She'll be offering cycling training to KS2 pupils and working with us to get better facilities for our bikes and scooters.
