Richmount Primary School have raised a very impressive sum of £670 for the charity ‘Angel Wishes’ from the P6/7 coffee morning held last term and donations in lieu of teachers’ Christmas presents. Pictured receiving the cheque on behalf of the charity are Mrs Debbie McCann and Ollie McCann who have benefitted from the help of the charity. Handing over the cheque are Mr Clyde and some of the P6/7 pupils who helped raise the money, Thomas Parks, Jessica Hughes, Holly Davey and Zack Davison. 

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.
