Holy Evangelists PS, Twinbrook - News and Challenges

Holy Evangelists PS Crest

 Holy Evangelists Primary School has been notified that they are only the second school in Northern Ireland to be awarded the Diversity Charter Mark - many congratulations!

Due to the lockdown situation the new build project has been delayed but everyone is hoping that they can decant into the new school in January.

The school has been busy setting, uploading and undertaking online challenges - the one below is an interesting one at this moment in time.

As the children were unable to make their first communion the school challenged them with a game of Guess Who i.e. identify the staff members from their communion photographs. This has proved very popular and the rogues gallery is produced below


May you always have a song - St Joseph's and St James PS, Poyntzpass

St Juosephs and St James

A selection of our pupils from St. Joseph and St. James’s P.S. Poyntzpass decided to spread some joy, at a time of great uncertainty.

Our pupils have established links with a local nursing home in Newry and had exchanged correspondence via letters and pictures to residents there, to help bring some cheer, as part of our work in the wider community. 

We became very mindful of how residents were feeling, missing seeing their relatives at this time, due to social distancing legislation.

As an idea with our new Principal Mrs C. Wadsworth in getting to know our pupils, we decided to create this short song. Each pupil listened and learned this new short piece independently, sending all their recordings back within a five day time frame.

We present to you ‘May you always have a song’.  We hope this short piece lifts your spirits in a way that only music can. 

To listen to the song click here! or click on the image below to take you to the school's webpage.
