We were delighted to welcome the Minister for Education, Mrs Michelle McIlveen, to our school today to meet the NI100 Art Competition Key Stage winners and to help us plant our NI Centenary tree.
The Minister and her team were all very impressed with the artwork on display and loved talking to the pupils about their pieces. All Key Stage winners have had their entries submitted to the finals that will be judged by an expert panel to determine the overall winners.
In the school's mini-forest, the Minister was given an insight into the Forest School's activities being enjoyed by the P4's. The pupils told the minister all the things they have been learning about with Mrs Weir and how they spend time each week exploring such a beautiful natural space and even learning some important survival skills!!
Finally, our P7 House Captains were introduced to Mrs McIlveen who helped them plant the NI Centenary tree. The Captains told her of the special day they had had when picking their tree with help from the Duke and Duchess of Wessex.
Overall, our pupils have done our school so proud with each and every one of them conducting themselves in such a mannerly and polite way at all times.
