The Department of Education (DE) is working to transform the communication and engagement for children who have, or may have SEN (Special Education Need), their parents/carers and relevant stakeholders to create a learner system and improve service delivery, experience and outcomes for pupils.

The Eco Team organized a ‘Senior School Sponsored Walk’ at Scarva Towpath. They raised funds to support the ‘Toilet Twinning’ Project that helps people to have access to safe sanitation, clean water and hygiene education. The Senior pupils managed to raise £900 which enabled the project to build 15 toilets in a range of places around the world, including Africa, Pakistan, Afghanistan and Central America. The Eco Team would like to thank people again for their donations and support. We are delighted that the toilets will a big difference to many communities.
The Siblings went canoeing at Craigavon Watersports Centre for their end of year trip. We all had an amazing time. We worked together as a team to race each other and the blue team just won by a small margin. Lots of the Siblings were very brave and jumped into the water! We also enjoyed having tea together at McDonalds.
The Eco Team have been planning to include a bird feeding area within a new sensory garden in the school grounds. To develop the pupil’s knowledge about local birds and their habitat we visited Lough Neagh Discovery Centre. The Eco Team learned about local birds, their nesting habits and food they eat. They also had an opportunity to use binoculars to do a spot of bird watching. The Eco Team went on a nature trail through the woodland area and found many bugs that make up a large part of the bird’s diet.

I’m not sure how anyone could fit more fun into 4 days!?
Bear Necessities visited school today and some pupils got to choose a bear to make. We even got to make a wish and put its heart in ourselves! We welcomed our music therapist Neal back for the day and some pupils even got to try this activity out for the first time. He sang some Disney songs for us to play along to. Our older pupils went bowling this morning – the competition was fierce. This afternoon we rested (with a Disney Movie, pizza and pick n mix!) A great finale to a fabulous week!
