House Quiz 2017 
 
Mr Clyde once again organised our annual House Quiz testing teams’ knowledge of general knowledge, maths, science, geography, entertainment and sport. There were also music, famous faces and slogans rounds which some teams found more challenging than others! The teams answered P6 and P7 questions, team questions and buzzer questions. After a close-fought battle, the Bann (red) team triumphed and received the most points for their house. Many thanks to Mr Clyde for organising the quiz and being an excellent quiz master and all the pupils for supporting and cheering on their team colour. 
Richmount Cup Girls' and Football Tournament 
Sponsored by Mr Don Woolsey, Mace Scotch Street, Portadown 
Football – The school’s boys’ football team that competed at the Mid-Ulster Schools’ Football Association Spring Festival on 7th April at Drumgor Primary School. The boys acquitted themselves very well in their matches against Dickson, Seagoe, Poyntzpass, Carrick and Mullaglass Primary Schools. The team’s captain, Zach Woolsey was outstanding both in attack and defence and was a great example to the rest of the team.  
Well done Zach!

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.
