Our school has been working in partnership with Dunmurry Primary School and St Colmans Primary School on Shared Education Projects. This involves the children visiting each other's schools and working together on shared learning projects. To help organise this children from Years 5-7 have been elected to a Shared Education Forum. This Forum meets at least once a term to organise the next stages of the project and to evaluate the success of the project so far. Our members are:
Year 5 - Summer McCullough and Casey Murray
Year 6 - Alex Hagans and Thomas Downey
Year 7 - Tamzin Wells and Reuben Hansen
We also run a Buddy Scheme which is aimed at helping our school to become a more positive and enjoyable place. Buddies well play with children who aren't feeling themselves, help new pupils settle into school life and organise games to get everyone involved in physical activity.
