A huge thank you and well done to everyone that helped in any way with the organising and running of our annual Halloween walk in Castle Saunderson. It was a great success. Thank you to everyone who attended on the day, we hope you had a lot of skele-fun! Well done to everyone who baked and cooked for the day and on the day!

Another big thank you to everyone who sponsored on the day and in the weeks leading up to the event, we really appreciate it. Also, another 'fangs' so much to everyone who dressed up on the day and helped transform the historic Castle Saunderson into a spooktacular location for the event.

2nd and 3rd class and 6th class attended a Bricks 4 Kidz science workshop today in Belturbet Library today. The boys were introduced to the Bricks for Kidz resources and learned how to identify the pieces, use the key/ legend given and worked independently, following given instructions, to create a battery powered dinosaur made from lego.
Pupils also learned that in the near future approximately 90 - 95% of our jobs will be based on STEM (Science, technology, Engineering and Maths) learning, highlighting the significance and imporace of such learning and skills. A great time was had by all!
