Learning Packs I would like to thank our local councillor, Michael Donnelly, who along with local Sinn Fein MLA, Pat Sheehan, delivered a home learning pack for every child in the school this week. This was funded by the Department of Communities, Belfast City Council. The children were delighted to receive their pencil case which was filled with pencils, rubbers, scissors, glue, sharpener etc and also a book. Michael and Pat are always great ambassadors, continually supporting the Turflodge community and Holy Trinity Primary School. Thank you for your constant support.
Dinner Please find attached the dinner menu which be in place from Monday 26th April for the next 8 weeks. It will commence with Week One.
Please see attached information regarding autism training that has been secured for Belfast Family Support Hubs. Places are limited and Hub referrals from Upper Springfield/Whiterock area are required to access this training for parents. Programmes will be in April, May & June. Parents can self refer.
It was wonderful to welcome some of our pupils back to school this week. Whilst we haven’t yet received official confirmation, it would appear that pupils in P1 to P3 and the children in our LSC’s will now be remaining in school for face to face teaching until Easter, which is great news. We hope that a decision will be made to enable our P4- P7 pupils to return to school soon. I will keep you informed of any updates.
ST PATRICK’S DAY School will be closed on the 17th March for St Patrick’s Day and will re-open on the 18th March. On Tuesday 16th March we will be having a “Green Day”, where children are encouraged to come to school wearing something green. We may not be able to have our usual St Patrick’s Day concert this year but we can still have some fun.
Art and Craft Packs I would like to take this opportunity to thank local councillor, Michael Donnelly, for securing funding from the Belfast Council Covid Community Fund, to provide all the pupils in P1-P3 and LSC’s with Art Packs. We hope that the children will use these packs to make you a lovely card for Mother’s Day. Thank you Michael and the Surestart team from Upper Springfield.
