Great news for parents and pupils - Another Changing Places facility has been opened in Northern Ireland! The business which went the extra mile to make its premises fully accessible is the multinational group IKEA.
It comes after Victoria Square and Castle Court shopping centres also installed the facilities which provide more space than a standard disabled toilet and offers room for a wheelchair user and two carers, with a height-adjustable bed and a hoist.

The siblings all enjoyed their night snow tubing. Everyone was going so fast that the photos don’t show all the fun that was had. Here’s a few photos of our visit. See you all in January 2019.

Junior school pupils joined for some messy, squishy, splatty, yummy, crunchy learning at the Christmas themed Sensory Sensations day this week. It’s easy to tell from the photos that they are certainly getting into the Christmas spirit!

The Eco Team have been very busy doing a big Autumn tidy up around the school grounds. Plant pots have been cleared of leaf litter, new fruit shrubs have been placed into our fruit and vegetable planters and lots of bulbs have planted in pots with the prospect of colourful flowers due to make an appearance at Spring time. We haven’t forgotten our wildlife and the Eco Team have been making bird food to feed the hungry birds during the Winter season.
The Eco Team paid Mrs Lavery a visit to discuss the school’s huge consumption of paper and ink and the costs involved. To help reduce our paper usage, it has been decided to go ‘paper free’ with our newsletter.
From January 2019, the newsletter will no longer be printed. Instead it will be available to read on our school website and text alerts and Facebook posts will let everyone know when the latest update is available to read.
