Halloween 2017

Today we had our Halloween dress up day and disco and everywhere you looked there was witches, skeletons, zombies and ghouls!

We hope you all have a lovely week off and that everyone comes back in safe and sound after the break. 

Here’s a few photos of our pupils dressed up today!

Funday Friday in St James’s Primary School

Our pupils had a lovely treat today with the arrival of an ice cream van to the school. Every pupil was treated to a ’99’ ice cream cone to enjoy in the fabulous sunshine…even the teachers got to indulge.

The sound of the van’s jingle even made some of the boys and girls dance as they waited!!

Children’s Laureate launches DEAR in James St CBS

Some of our 5th class pupils were lucky enough to be invited to the launch of the DEAR (Drop Everything And Read) Initiative in the CBS Library. We met PJ Lynch, author and illustrator of The Boy Who Fell Off The Mayflower and he also illustrated Ryan Tubridy’s book, Patrick and the President. He spoke to us about the stories and illustrations in his books and told how he used his daughter as a model in his books. PJ used charcoal to complete some drawings of our pupils, which we will display in the school. Many thanks to the CBS and Siobhan, the librarian, for the invitation.
