"Building on the past, learning for the present, preparing for the future" 
 
Welcome to Richmount Primary School’s website. 
 
This website has been designed to provide you with useful information and give you some insight into the educational opportunities available in this school 
 
I hope the information will be of benefit and interest. We believe that our pupils are our greatest assets and together form our most convincing advertisement. 
 
We aim to provide a broad and balanced curriculum with due emphasis given to academic achievement, basic skills, the opportunity for physical development and a social and moral environment which encourages the principles of honesty and integrity, self confidence and a consideration of others. 
 
A close partnership between home and school is highly valued and is fostered in numerous ways throughout the school year. 
 
Please feel free to contact the school with any queries you may have. 
 
Yours sincerely 
Mr. M. Hall 
Principal 
Moy Road Closed  
Dear Parent, 
 
As you are aware the roadway outside the school is due to be resurfaced over the next few weeks. Work is due to start om Monday 22nd and should be concluded by Friday 2nd February 2018. 
 
I met with the contractor Whitemountain today and they have assured me that parents will be able to drop pupils off at school as usual and that the school bus will also be able to function as normal. Whitemountain will have personnel at both ends of the area scheduled for resurfacing to advise parents in the morning and the afternoon. 
 
Obviously the situation is rather fluid and circumstances can change from day to day so I would advise parents to remain cautious and be prepared for occasional delays. 
 
In order to help ease the situation in the afternoon, extra-curricular activities (with the exception of Healthy Kidz on a Thursday and Irish Dancing on a Friday) will not resume until the work is completed. 
 
I hope that this puts parents’ minds at ease, however should a major problem arise please let me know and I will pass this information directly to the company. 
 
 
Yours sincerely, 
Mr. M.D.J. Hall (Principal) 
 
Charity donation of £530.50 was raised during December 2017. 
 
A big thank you to everyone who 
made a donation!! 
Friends of the Cancer Centre has a long and proud history of helping local cancer patients across Northern Ireland for over 30 years. Based at the heart of the Cancer Centre at Belfast City Hospital, the charity funds life-saving and life-changing projects that make a real and lasting difference to the lives of thousands of local people affected by cancer and in the last year alone, Friends of the Cancer Centre has put £1.4 million back into local cancer services. 
 
A collection was taken after the Christmas Assembly and 
instead of buying or receiving Christmas gifts parents and staff donated a total of £530.50. 
 
The money donated to this charity is spent in Northern Ireland and I'm sure you will agree that it is a very worthy and deserving cause.

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.
