Glengormley IPS wishes you all a very happy St Patrick’s Day 2012

without comments

All the children came home with shamrock after a special P2 St Patrick’s Day celebration Assembly on Wednesday this week.  Also we were visited for the very first time from the priest of St Mary’s on the Hill Parish, Father John Forsythe on Tuesday too.  We presented Father John with shamrock and he led the service of 1st Penance (Confession) on Wednesday for our P3 children in St Mary’s on the Hill.

Here’s what one of our parents had to say about the day…..

“I didn’t get a chance to speak to you on Wednesday but my husband and I both wanted to say thank you for all the work you (and other staff!) have done in preparing the children for their 1st Confession.  The junior choir sang beautifully and all were so well turned out in their shirts and ties and so well behaved they did us proud!   It was lovely that the children got a wee certificate to remember the day and also a lovely touch to have tea/juice and biscuits back in the school afterwards!

INTEGRATED WEEK BALLOON RELEASE ~ WONDERFUL JOURNEY~ Friday 9th March 2012 @ 1130

without comments

We are holding our own special Glengormley Balloon Release as the finale of our Integrated Week 2012.  On Friday 9th March 2012 at 1130, we will launch 300 colourful balloons into the sky above Glengormley to mark 30 years of Integrated Education in Northern Ireland.  We hope that anyone that finds one of our balloons will detach the card on it and contact our school by phone or email to let us know how far and where it has ended up.  If we get a good prevailing wind (which we can in the micro-climate of the shadow of the Cavehill as anyone who lives in Glengormley knows!) who knows how far they might go and where they will end up.  The children are looking forward to charting the balloon journeys.  Please do come along and join us in the playground at 1130 on Friday 9th March 2012 and watch the children ably assisted by a special guest release our balloons.
