Growing Together To Be Our Best


Hello and welcome to our photograph gallery for the academic year 2008-9.

The children have always wanted to share what they do with their family and friends via the website. We try and update the gallery every week with the newsletter. The photographs were taken by staff, parents and as you will see the children themselves. Detailed information and documents are on the main Remember if you have any pictures you want to share or comment you can contact us via e-mail or phone the school on 029 2056 25 95

The photographs are divided into Albums for classes and then into Clubs andEvents which include activities for more than one class. You can see our gallery for2007-82006-7 or 2005-6. Prior to that all our photographs are on our old website here which includes photos back to 2002.
