The pupils from Donard School want to say a huge thank you to the customers and staff of TESCO, Castlewellan Road, Banbridge.
Staff at the store in Banbridge Town started making pland for this surprise when Santa was in residence at TESCO before Christmas. The fundraising continued into 2018. The Outdoor Kitchen and Sand Box we were gifted were especially designed to meet the needs of our pupils.
Our pupils were delighted when they arrived at school on a sunny Spring morning to find an unexpected surprise … the sand tray and mud kitchen are fabulous – just what we needed!
So Thank you to Banbridge Community, Harry Smith (Store Manager), Cathy Skillen (Checkout Manager), Jason Black (NI Traditional ToyBox) and all the team at TESCO.
The photos really do say it all!

A massive thankyou to Run for Autism H.A.N.D who presented us with a cheque for £2000. The money will help to provide accessible clubs and social opportunities for our pupils after school.
What a fabulous night from start to finish!
A huge thank you to Sperrinview School, Dungannon who hosted this year’s ‘Hodown’ Formal. The pupils were treated to a lively evening of food, dance and craic. They had fun in the photo booth, munched their way through the sweetie cart and posed with the farmyard props. Certainly a night to remember!

Our residential visit to Whitepark Bay was a great success this year! Pupils enjoyed bowling and the cinema at the Jet Centre! The weather was lovely on most days and we certainly made the most of it on the beach! We had some down time with our friends at the café and enjoyed shopping at Jingles.
