Irish News School Competition
To celebrate Derry’s City of Culture status, the Irish News and the Tourist Board are offering schools the chance to win an educational and fun trip to Derry City. We ask that any relative of our school children who buy the Irish News collect the tokens and send them into the school office.
Valentine theme tonight with lots of valentine arts, crafts and chocolates. Cost is £1.50 per child.
Reminder to parents of a short postponement of school meals. Unfortunately, due to unforeseen circumstances beyond our control and until further notice, the hot meals at lunch time will be replaced with the provision of Sandwiches, Fresh Fruit, Yoghurts and Milk each day.
The North Eastern Education & Library Board have stated that they will endeavour to provide a new piece of equipment that we require within a few weeks and when the unit has been installed, dinners will resume.
Those children with entitlement for Free School Meals will obviously be catered for with a ‘packed lunch’ type meal as detailed above and the option also remains for parents to buy this type of lunch if they so desire.
