Well done to all of the boys and girls from Primary 3 to Primary 7 who created manifesto posters for school  and eco council.

Following voting, the above children have been elected for 2019/20. 

Well done and we look forward to listening to your ideas to make our school even better!



The Eco-Council are delighted to announce that we have been awarded our Green Flag once again.

The assessors arrived on Tuesday 28th May and spent the morning working with the eco-council . They were really impressed with all of the work we carry out in school linked to our eco-school topics of energy, recycling, healthy living and global perspectives.

Well done everyone!

Our Eco-Code

Eco - Code for foundation stage children

Bryson Energy came into school to talk to us all about the importance of being energy efficient. It was a very interesting and informative  morning for us all.

Eco-Code Competition

Saoirse the Scarecrow

Our scarecrow was beautifully dressed last year by the Wade family.  It is time again for him to have a change of clothes. Therefore, we are asking if families who would be interested in helping out would please contact Mrs McAtamney and we will organise this as soon as possible.


Eco-Mascot Competition


The overall winner of the eco-mascot competition was Clara O'Kane from Primary 5. 

The standard was so high we chose a winner from each class.  Well done everyone they all looked fantastic; so much time and effort went into each and every one. 

Switch it off week

Each month we have "Switch it off week" in a bid to save energy and reduce energy bills for our school. The eco-council make visits to classrooms one week every month to ensure each class is being as energy efficient as possible.

Well done to Primary ......who won last month!
