A huge well done to our Primary 7 class, who with the help of Miss Keown organised our Easter Raffle . It was a huge success and raised a massive £600 for Trocaire. Thank you to all who donated prizes and bought tickets.
At our Easter Assembly, we celebrated the achievements of the children in Mathletics. The person with the most points accrued from Christmas to Easter in each class received a certificate and an Easter egg from Miss Gormley. Well done to all the children in the school who are making excellent progress in mathletics.
Releasing Salmon to Lough Melvin!
Garrison Lough Melvin Anglers Association brought salmon eggs to St Martin's and they asked the pupils to look after the eggs before they were released into Lough Melvin. The children took really good care of the salmon eggs by making sure the temperature was correct for the eggs and by checking the water daily. The children then had the opportunity to release the eggs into Lough Melvin with members of the Garrison Lough Melvin Anglers Association.
P4/5 Cookery Club
Miss Keown and Miss Campbell organised a cookery course for P4/5 children. The children learned all about the importance of a balanced diet. They also learned how to make healthy snacks & meals. They also learned how to make treats for special occasions. The food tasted amazing and the children really enjoyed the six weeks!!!
Thank you Miss Keown and Miss Campbell.
We were very lucky to receive a visit from local author, Mack Mc Evoy, today! He read his very first book to children in P1 to P5.
The book was called "Webster's Best Day Ever" and it was a heart warming story about the importance of friendship.
The children asked Mack some interesting questions after the storytelling session. The children really enjoyed the visit.
