GREAT START TO SHARED EDUCATION

On Friday 9th November we had our first day of our new Shared Education Programme at St Patrick's in Glenariff.  The Primary 5 children had a fun day alongside other Primary 5 children from St Ciaran's in Cushendun and St Patrick's.  The children enjoyed a range of ice breaker games, a beach scavenger hunt and outdoor play.  A great day was had by all! Well Done Primary 5

IPADS FOR BUSHVALLEY 

Mrs Irwin is delighted to inform you that we now have eight iPads up and working at Bushvalley! 
Three iPads were bought through money raised by the School Council: Halloween Fun Day, Break the Rules Day and Easter Fun Day. The PTA then donated money for a further three iPads and a very generous donation allowed us to make it up to a total of eight iPads.
Thank you once again, Mrs Irwin is a very happy ICT             Co-ordinator!
