Shannaghmore Trip 1 - Day 3

Day 3 - … started with a bang! The sun was up and the sky was blue, but the CPS crew were definitely starting to wain. Unbelievably no one was awake at 0730, so Mr D had to take dramatic action …. the lights were switched on … the bell was rung and the sleep had to be rubbed from our eyes!

Shannaghmore Trip 1 - Day 2

Day 2 began at the crack of dawn … teeth brushed, showers (despite protests!), change of socks and a healthy breakfast …. much to Miss Armstrong's delight! All aboard … for the move to Tollymore Forest Park, where the team was lulled into a false sense of security …. 'and we only have to crawl under a bench!!'

Shannaghmore Trip 1 - Day 1

A fantastic start to our trip to Shannaghmore OEC for Year 6 (Group 1) - The 'A' Team. Miss Armstrong has found a new weekend hobby - next stop Mount Everest! Following our first experience of Scrambling at Spelga Dam, we can honestly say that we are really proud of our team.

Exciting Year 1 News

We are delighted to be able to inform you that the numbers in our Year 1 have increased significantly since the start of the year. As a result, the Board of Governors have looked at the impact this increase is having and have decided to operate three full-time Year 1 classes with effect from March 2019.

This means that all of the children in Year 1 will now remain with their own class teacher throughout the day and the class sizes will not increase in the afternoons. Consequently, now the average class size in Year 1 will be 23 all day.

This is fantastic news, as this development will enable us to offer all of the children in this year group an even better learning experience.
