Due to the large number of Children in P1 this year we have to limit the maximum amount of tickets to 2 per child. If you require more than 2 tickets we can take the names although we cannot guarantee they will get in.

CHRISTMAS PRESENTS 

Christmas will soon be with us all!

Parents/Guardians often generously give presents to teachers/assistants at Christmas. Over the last few years we suggested that you give a small donation to charity instead which has been great success.

If you do decide to make a donation, a box will be available at the main office.  Any donations received will be split between the 3 Charities. The Charities we are supporting this year are – 

*Hospice

*Daniel’s Rainbow Fund

*Heartbeat NI

Please note this is entirely voluntary and no one is under any obligation to do this.
