Each child received a badge, pencil and activity sheet on the completion of the tour.

After the tour we walked into Newcastle and enjoyed lunch in KFC.

A great day was had by everyone and the children were praised on the excellent behaviour and good manners everywhere they went.

New iPads For Richmount PS

Pictured with the pupils are Joe Garvey, chairman of RRCA, Simon Clyde, teacher, and Richard Newport, PTA Chairperson. The PTA hope to donate additional funding to purchase several more ipads in the near-future.


The members of the school Eco-team arranged for the Water Bus to visit P5/6/7 at Richmount on Friday 6th March to give pupils a better understanding of the water cycle, where our water comes from, how our water is cleaned and purified and most importantly, how we can conserve water in the home and at school.


The pupils and staff of Richmount Primary School celebrated World Book Day last Friday by coming to school dressed as a character from a book they selected. A boy and girl were chosen from each class as the ‘best-dressed character.’ Book-themed literacy was the focus in each class throughout the day.

Many thanks to all pupils and parents for the fantastic effort with many fabulous costumes on display!
