Dear Parent/Guardian 
 
Friday 30th January 2015 was a landmark in the history of Richmount Primary School as we had the official opening of our new multi-purpose hall and classroom. The new facilities are being fully used and appreciated by the entire school population and many of those who attended our Christmas assembly in December commented favourably during their visit. 
 
I was delighted that Dame Mary Peters CH DBE RNR was our guest of honour. I believe that it is very fitting that someone with her civic role, sporting background and link with Portadown kindly agreed to carry out this duty. 
 
 
 
 
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.
