Shared Education 2019-2020 P1/2
The P1/2 class in Richmount PS met their friends from St John’s, Eglish PS for the first day of their Shared Education programme. All the children enjoyed a fun-filled day at Cheeky Monkeys Adventure Playground in Newry. Even Mrs Gamble, Mrs Greer and Mrs Black had super fun!
P4/5 RNLI Lifeboat Station in Newcastle
The P4/5 class along with Mr Clyde, Mrs Wilson and Mrs Heatrick, visited the RNLI Lifeboat Station in Newcastle as part of their work on Seas and Oceans. The children toured the station, met the crew, watched some real-life rescues off the Newcastle coast on DVD, tried on the gear and safety equipment and climbed on board the All-Weather and Inshore Lifeboats. 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. The children enjoyed spending their money in the Bon-Bon sweet shop and after that Mr Clyde treated everyone to ice-cream in Nugelato. A great day was had by everyone and the children were praised on the excellent behaviour and good manners everywhere they went.
Shared Education 2019-2020 P7
The P7 class at Richmount PS had a very successful introductory day to their Shared Education programme. The P6/7 class travelled from St John’s, Eglish PS for an action-packed day of ice-breaker activities, team challenges and sports’ tournament. Mr Clyde and Mr McKenna would like to thank Karol McQuade who helped lead the day. Pupils integrated very well together and enjoyed spending time chatting over their lunch.
