World War One Centenary Project 
 
On Wednesday 7th and Monday 12th November, primary seven took part in a World War One Centenary project organised by South Lough Neagh Regeneration Association. The pupils enjoyed an interactive school based session taken by staff from the Navan Centre at Armagh. During this session the pupils made replica war medals, then were put through some drills by staff in period costume. They simulated going over the top from a trench and tried out atefacts, namely a Mills bomb, stick grenade, gas mask, Enfield rifle, helmets and a trench periscope. This session proved to be an excellent forerunner to the second part of the project which was a trip to the Somme Centre outside Newtownards. 
At the Somme Centre the pupils learned about why the first World War broke out in 1914 and why men and boys from all traditions volunteered to join the fight. The highlight of the visit was a walk through the mock trenches, following in the footsteps of the 36th Ulster Division why fought so gallantly during the first day of the Somme offensive on 1st July 1916. 
 

Aspire, Aim and Achieve 
October 2018 

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.
