AFTER SCHOOL ACTIVITIES RESUME WEEK  
 
Half Term Break 
 
Dear Parent, 
 
A new, much needed extractor fan system is being fitted to the school’s kitchen over the half term break. We have organized this work to be completed over this short holiday period in an attempt to minimize disruption to the day to day running of the school. However there will still be two days when the school cannot provide dinners and we will therefore be finishing at 12 noon for all pupils on these days. 
 
• Monday 19th February school resumes at the normal time but finishes at 12 noon for all pupils (school bus will operate at this time) 
• Tuesday 20th February school operates as normal with dinners and finishes at the normal time. 
 
I apologise for any inconvenience caused as a result of these changes. 
Monday: 
 
12 noon finish. School bus will leave at 12 noon

As part of P4/5 (Mr Clyde) farming topic Oliver’s mum brought to school 2 pet pygmy goats called Ralph and Margaret. The breed originated in Africa and Oliver has owned them for around a year. P4/5 were very excited to have 2 extra pupils in school and spent time brushing their coats and feeding them meal, bread and biscuits.

Welcome to Richmount Primary School’s website. 
 
This website has been designed to provide you with useful information and give you some insight into the educational opportunities available in this school 
 
I hope the information will be of benefit and interest. We believe that our pupils are our greatest assets and together form our most convincing advertisement. 
 
We aim to provide a broad and balanced curriculum with due emphasis given to academic achievement, basic skills, the opportunity for physical development and a social and moral environment which encourages the principles of honesty and integrity, self confidence and a consideration of others. 
 
A close partnership between home and school is highly valued and is fostered in numerous ways throughout the school year. 
 
Please feel free to contact the school with any queries you may have. 
 
Yours sincerely 
Mr. M. Hall 
Principal 
Charity donation of £530.50 was raised during December 2017. 
 
A big thank you to everyone who 
made a donation!! 
Friends of the Cancer Centre has a long and proud history of helping local cancer patients across Northern Ireland for over 30 years. Based at the heart of the Cancer Centre at Belfast City Hospital, the charity funds life-saving and life-changing projects that make a real and lasting difference to the lives of thousands of local people affected by cancer and in the last year alone, Friends of the Cancer Centre has put £1.4 million back into local cancer services. 
 
A collection was taken after the Christmas Assembly and 
instead of buying or receiving Christmas gifts parents and staff donated a total of £530.50. 
 
The money donated to this charity is spent in Northern Ireland and I'm sure you will agree that it is a very worthy and deserving cause. 
 

 
P4/5 pupils all worked really hard making carrot and coriander and carrot and parsnip soup. It was delicious! Some budding chefs in our midst we think! To see more photos click here  

 

Aspire, Aim and Achieve 

In school we have designed a new noticeboard which will enable us to highlight achievement by pupils each month. This board allows us to celebrate the achievement by a pupil from each year group plus the after school club. Certificates are awarded during a full school assembly on the last Friday of each month. 
 
We encourage all of our pupils to “Aspire, Aim and Achieve” in everything they do both in school and at home.
