Pupils were given the opportunity to ask her questions and find out what their £730 raised would be used for.

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. Over the years she has worked with individual children and the P1 year group. Mrs Courtney was responsible for many years for entering and coaching pupils for the Portadown Speech Festival and was in charge of our school library and organised the mobile library van rota. 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. We would like to thank Mrs Courtney for all her hard work and dedication over the years and extend our best wishes for the future and hope to see her calling back to say hello!
