The Credit Union ran an art competition. Ellie Mcdonald won first prize in this winning a family pass to the Zoological gardens.
They had previously run an art competition in conjunction with Shankill Traders. In this we had three four winners, Poppy Miller, Max Lawless, Olivia Carroll and Ellie Mcdonald. Poppy won a camera at this time.
6th Class entered a quiz which the Credit Union sponsored for schools. This was enjoyed by all.
Our M3 money saving club is also run by the Credit Union and is very popular.
Well done Core Credit Union on all you do for the schools It is very much appreciated. Getting involved with the local community is important in our school. Indeed it is part of our Global Citizenship Flag.
We held our own handwriting competition in the school to promote neatness, good punctuation and clarity. We hold this twice a year and it has proved to be very popular throughout the school. Children who are making great strides with their writing are also encouraged as we have prizes for each class for most improved.
This year we held an Adult Quiz as a fund raiser in Shankill Tennis Club. This was well attended and great fun. Niall Carty, a parent, went to enormous trouble putting questions together and unfortunately for him has a job for the next4/5 years!! Well done to the PTA for the refreshments and organisation involved. Getting people to attend fundraisers can be a very difficult task, however usually everyone has a good time and certainly the school benefits each time. Thank you all my amazing volunteers.
