5th & 6th classes had a wonderful day yesterday in Creggs RFC taking part in the Nations Rugby Series. We had the honour of representing Scotland. All of the students enjoyed their 7-a-side games of tag rugby and we might have a few converts to the sport! Well done all.
As we arrived back in school this September we were all thrilled to see our new sensory garden in full bloom and the new sensory play areas ready to go.
It gives us great joy to name our beautiful garden after our wonderful secretary, Mary Tully, may she rest in eternal peace.
It is amazing to see all of the staff and children enjoying the new spaces. This area is a fabulous addition to our lovely school and will benefit our school community for years to come.
Sincere thanks to all who helped to make it a reality.
