Dear Parent/Guardian 
 
Congratulations to our school’s swimming team who achieved a wonderful second place at the small schools’ gala on Tuesday 19th May. A total of nine schools were taking part in the gala with Richmount ending up just two points behind the overall winners. Well done all those who swam! 
 
The week beginning 1st June is our exam week and the week beginning 25th May is therefore revision week. I would ask parents to ensure that their children are fully prepared for the exams and that spellings, tables and number fact have been revised. 
 
 
 
 
Yours Sincerely 
 
Mr. M. D.J. Hall 
 
 
Congratulations Hannah! 
 
This year I competed in the Flahavans Porridge Athletics N.I. Primary School Cross Country. I was 5th in Northern Ireland Primary Girls and 1st in the Southern Area. 
The league final brought together 192 competitors from across the province. This was made up of the top 5 individuals in each of the 7 areas and the best 3 school teams from each area. 
The top 20 girls and boys are invited to join the NI Junior Cross Country Squad for 2015. I cannot wait to train with them and be part of the squad. 
The best part of the day was having the P7 girls, Miss Haslam and Mrs Courtney there to support me. I had the best supporters there!

Aspire, Aim and Achieve 

In school we have designed a new noticeboard which will enable us to highlight achievement by pupils each month. This board allows us to celebrate the achievement by a pupil from each year group plus the after school club. Certificates are awarded during a full school assembly on the last Friday of each month. 
 
We encourage all of our pupils to “Aspire, Aim and Achieve” in everything they do both in school and at home. We have taken this slogan as it is the motto for the 2012 London Olympic Games.
