Richmount Says Goodbye to Mrs Johns!

A presentation was made to Mrs Johns in our assembly on Friday 6th December for all her hard work with the P5/6 class in term 1.

Brooke Cordner and Ben Woolsey, P5 and Kaitlyn Newport and Thomas McClelland, P6 presented Mrs Johns with cards, a voucher for Victoria Square in Belfast and a bouquet of flowers. The school would like to thank Mrs Johns for everything she has done, not only for the P5/6 class but also for the school community in general. Her positivity, commitment, enthusiasm and excellent teaching since September have been much appreciated by everyone at Richmount. All the best in the future, Mrs Johns and we hope to see you back in Richmount again soon!

Mrs Courtney Says Goodbye to Richmount!

Mrs Courtney officially finished with us in Richmount on Friday 13th December after almost 25 years as a classroom assistant in Richmount Primary School.

Mrs Courtney was presented with a bouquet of flowers and a shopping voucher on behalf of the school and a bouquet of flowers on behalf of the PTA.
