Caiti Cuts her Hair for Marie Curie

 
 
 
 
 

Congratulations to Caiti Gorman P7 and her mum Anita who have taken the very brave step to get their hair cut and shaved to help raise funds for The Marie Curie Cancer Fund.   Cancer has directly effected Caiti and her family and this charity is very close to their hearts. 

Caiti and her mum have raised the outstanding amount of £8,500 !!! Their target was £3,000!  we are immensely proud of Caiti and her mum for being so brave and selfless.  Thank you to everyone for showing overwhelming support and generosity.  Well Done !

 

Be A Food Waste Hero

We are taking part in an exciting Food Waste Challenge being run by Keep Northern Ireland Beautiful, Eco-Schools NI with support from the Department of Agriculture, Environmental and Rural Affairs, (DAERA).

Children have been asked to become 'Food Waste Heroes' at home in a bid to reduce the amount of food waste being sent to landfill in our black bins. Each family (P4 to P7) has been given a bin sticker and a family pledge fridge magnet to display at home. Children have been asked to have fun with food recycling, over mid-term break, e.g. by dressing up as super heroes to throw Food Waste in the caddy or brown bin, making posters to put up in the kitchen or make up a rap etc. 

There is a council run competition for families to submit a photo of them being Food Waste heroes at home. One winning photo will be chosen from each council area and the school will receive a prize. (See details below). 

Your local council will also have resources and information on food waste and recycling facilities in your area.
