Tis the season to celebrate!
The children in our school are busy preparing for a very special Christmas Carol Service, being held on the morning and evening of Tuesday 12 December 2017 at First Cookstown Presbyterian Church, Loy Hill, Cookstown at 10am and 6:30pm.
This is a special service as it is to celebrate the school’s Fiftieth anniversary. We will enjoy music from our drum corps, Traditional Group, Infant, Junior & Senior Choirs and the school Orchestra……along with a couple of other surprises!
Further information will follow in due course but save the date!!! You won’t want to miss it!
Christmas Craft Fair
There will be lots of exciting and original stalls selling handmade arts and crafts from local artists and makers. This is a brilliant opportunity to buy a special gift for your family & friends, so we hope that you will be able to get into the Christmas Spirit at Cookstown Primary School's Christmas Craft Fair.
We can promise that there will be a little something for everyone as: Health and Beauty, Jewellery, Books, Baked Goods, Chocolate Fountain and the girl’s firm favourite Once Upon a Bow Stall are all coming along..
A little Elf has also informed us that Santa and his reindeer will be joining us to make this special evening even more memorable for all of the family.....
If you would like further information or would like to book a stall, please contact Yvonne on 07850570486.
On Wednesday 8th November Cookstown Primary School hosted its annual Harvest Tea service. Children throughout the school participated in the celebrations. Musical items featured the school orchestra, Junior Choir, Senior Choir and also the Traditional Music Group. Rebecca and Maddie in Year 6 performed a mime to "At Your Name". Many parents, family members and friends visited the school to listen to the exciting programme which the pupils had keenly rehearsed. An enjoyable morning was had by all!
Check out videos of the Junior Choir, Senior Choir and mime below!
Year 5 have thoroughly been enjoying the Lego after school club.
Check out our spooktacular costumes below!!!
Congratulations to the Hughes family who all received a special award certificate for the month of October. Well done!!!
Looking forward to the Harvest Tea
The Orchestra, Trad Groups, Drum Corps, Junior and Senior choirs have been super busy preparing for the Harvest Tea. Unfortunately Hurricane Ophelia, along with an unexpected Year 7 trip to Windsor Park and various other events in our school diary, put a spanner in the works and we have had to postpone our performance to Wednesday 8 November 2017 at 10am.
Tickets are priced at £2 per person and you can sit back, relax and enjoy some music that the children have prepared over the last number of weeks. And then the Christmas rehearsals commence...!
We would like to congratulate Laura and Ivan Keys on the safe arrival of little Evie Grace on 6/10/17. Weighing 6lb 11oz. We can’t wait to meet this wee dote!
