Early Closure Thursday 27th September 
 
Dear Parent, 
 
It is with great sadness that I have to inform you of the passing of Lynsey Courtney, mother of Callum and daughter of Mrs. Sandra Courtney, one of our classroom assistants. 
 
Lynsey lost her battle to cancer on Sunday past following an extremely brave and courageous fight. As a school community we pass on our sympathy to Callum, Sandra and the family circle. 
 
As the funeral service will be taking place on Thursday 27th September at 1.30 pm, school will finish for all pupils at 12 noon. This is to enable the school staff to attend the service in Drumcree Parish Church. (The school bus will operate at 12 noon and there will be no after school club with Portadown FC.) 
 
Thank you in advance of your support in this matter. 
 
 
Yours sincerely, 
M. D. J. Hall (Principal)

P7 VISIT THE NATIONAL STADIUM WINDSOR PARK 
 
P7 pupils visited the home of the GREEN AND WHITE ARMY, the National Stadium Windsor Park on Monday 11th June 2018. This trip formed part of their Term 3 WAU topic on the Football World Cup. The pupils were involved in an excellent workshop entitled, Give Racism The Boot. This workshop looked at stereotyping, prejudice and discrimination in society. The pupils then viewed the Northern Ireland Football exhibition and then concluded their visit with a stadium tour. The stadium tour took in the changing rooms, training gym, press room, hospitality suite and of course a pitch side view from the substitutes’ seats. After the visit everyone enjoyed their lunch at McDonald’s. 
 
RICHMOUNT GIRLS SUCCESS AT THE AMBASSADORS’ TOURNAMENT

In the group stages the girls lost one nil to the Hart PS and then drew one all with Bleary and nil, nil with the Cope PS. This enabled the girls to progress to the Shield semi-final where they defeated Saints and Scholars three one. Then came the Shield final which the girls won by two goals to nil. The team’s goals were scored by Ellie Woolsey and Lucy Wells. Ellie Woolsey was awarded the most promising player medal. All of the girls performed extremely well and thoroughly deserved to take home the silverware. Congratulations girls!

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.
