WORLD BOOK DAY 

Click on this text to edit it. 

Mr Clyde’s P6/7 class all designed and wrote a children’s story book to read to a child in Mrs Whitford’s P1/2 class. The book was then given to the P1/2 child as a gift to celebrate World Book Day. All the pupils enjoyed reading and chatting together. 
Book Fair and Elaine Livingstone from Asda Portadown (disguised as Minnie Mouse) visited the pupils in P1-P4 to read stories as part of our World Book Day celebrations. 

Automated External Defibrillator (AED) 

In Richmount Primary School we now have an Automated External Defibrillator (AED) funded by Sport Northern Ireland. This is invaluable if either a child or an adult goes into cardiac arrest whilst in school. These units are expensive so we are very fortunate to have one on the premises. Both Mr Clyde and Mr Hall have been trained up on using one of these defibrillators on both children and adults. 

Charity  

Fundraising for 'Angel Wishes' 

Richmount Primary School have raised a very impressive sum of £670 for the charity ‘Angel Wishes’ from the P6/7 coffee morning held last term and donations in lieu of teachers’ Christmas presents. Pictured receiving the cheque on behalf of the charity are Mrs Debbie McCann and Ollie McCann who have benefitted from the help of the charity. Handing over the cheque are Mr Clyde and some of the P6/7 pupils who helped raise the money, Thomas Parks, Jessica Hughes, Holly Davey and Zack Davison. 
P6/7 Coffee Morning for ‘Angel Wishes’ 
 
As part of their ‘Money-Wise’ topic the P6/7 class along with Mr Clyde and Mrs Capper decided to plan and hold a coffee morning in school to raise money for the charity ‘Angel Wishes’, which grants wishes and gives amazing special days to children fighting cancer and leukaemia. We advertised our event and wrote to different businesses asking for sponsorship. Mrs Capper helped the P6/7 pupils bake a selection of buns during the week to sell to the pupils in school. We decorated our school assembly hall with pinks and purples and held the event on Friday 21st October. A large number of parents and friends turned up to support us and the P6/7s are really pleased to say they managed to raise an amazing £522 for the charity which we hope to hand over to them in the next few weeks. They would like to thank the main sponsors of the event-Woolsey’s Mace, Scotch Street, Wright’s Spar, Dungannon Rd, Woods’ Supervalu, Tandragee and Greenmount Vets, Portadown. They would also like to thank the many parents, family and friends who were busy baking and sending in donations of food for our event.
