Today Johnny from @SustransNI paid us a visit. Unfortunately it was just too windy for our annual Santa Run, so instead we held a Santa Duck hunt in the Hall. Two P6 boys hid the ducks and it was great fun trying to find them! One duck was exchanged for a treat from Mrs. H.

Thank you to everyone who attended our Christmas Tree Festival last night, there was a super turnout and Santa was having a great old time chatting with the children. The total raised from the Raffle, and the Christmas Tree Festival was £1231.30 which is a super amount. Thank you to you all for your support.

A huge well done to this Primary 6 star who is showing such kindness to others. Yesterday, she got her hair cut to donate to @LittlePrincessTrust and has raised over £800. The Little Princess Trust provides free real hair wigs to children and young people, up to 24 years, who have lost their own hair through cancer treatment or other conditions. They also fund childhood cancer research searching to find kinder and more effective treatments. We are all so very proud of her.
