Christmas Experience, Fun Day and Raffles

Our PTA ran a number of events on the run up to Christmas. While the main aim of the events are to provide memorable experiences for our pupils they also provide opportunities to raise funds for the school. Through these events our PTA raised approximately £1,800 which will be used to repaint the Y1-3 playground.


Cystic Fibrosis

Approximately £800 was raised through the retiring offering at our annual Y4-7 Carol Service in St Columba’s. The school are making this up to £1,000 and we have donated this to the CF Trust care of the Royal Belfast Hospital for Sick Children.

Dinner Money

Please ensure that dinner money for the week is sent into school on Monday mornings as this helps in the smooth running of the office. Thanks
