Integrated Education Week ~ Hearts & Minds 7-11 March 2011

without comments

Each class this week made a little person to add to a school family.  Within each person, children in the classes thought about people and things that they loved, and ideas of what they would like to be, know and do to be more integrated.  Teachers and pupils in each class shared their thoughts about Integration, what it is, what makes us different in our school to others and why it’s so important to us.

Here is the collection of children from Glengormley IPS that we made from P1-P7 this week.  Each is unique like the children in our school.

P7 pupils share in Parkhall Integrated Week Workshop

without comments

4 Primary 7 pupils travelled to Parkhall IC in Antrim today with Mr Arnold, to share in an art workshop with pupils from 3 other neighbouring Integrated Primary Schools.  The staff hosting them had the children involved in making a large banner focussed on the theme this year of “Hearts & Minds” which will take pride of place in the school assembly hall next to the large kite our pupils were involved in making last year.

The children had fun mixing with their peers from other schools whist stimulating their own minds about “what is Integration?” and “what makes it different to other schools?”

Glengormley Footballers take 2nd Place!

without comments

Our little football team took second place runners-up last week in a Newtownabbey Tournament held at the Valley Leisure Centre.

We were going really strong through all the games until we met our rivals Carnmoney PS in the last game.  Unfortunately on this occasion, things did not go our way!  The boys played really well and were commended on their team skills, individual skills and spirit.

We won two games, drew two and lost the final one.  We scored a hatful of goals along the way and had a lot of fun.

Here are some clips from the events to see how well they played.
