CAPTAIN CLEAN-UP.

Holy Trinity P.S. received a visit on Wednesday 16th January from Captain Clean-Up. He was there to present our P5s with a prize from Belfast City Council for all their hard work in the council’s Litter Pick-up campaign. Our hard-working P5s had been giving up their break and lunch times to make sure the grounds around the school were kept clean, tidy and litter free. Captain Clean-Up also talked about keeping the environment outside of the school as free from dangerous and unsightly litter as possible, a message our P5s agree completely with.

 

Time To Code!

P5ML have started their 6 week Coding project organised by Ciara Mulgrew from BITC (Business In the Community.) They are delighted to have Colleen Scott from ARRIS helping each week. We look forward to seeing their Scratch projects.

Is your child starting P1 in September 2019?

DIGITAL APPLICATION FORMS

This year we have been advised by the Education Authority that the process of applying for a place for your child in P1 for September 2019 will now have to be done digitally. This will apply to every school.
The Education Authority plan to introduce online applications for admissions to Nursery and primary schools for children starting September 2019.
The Go Live date for the new digital admissions is Wednesday 2nd January 2019 at 10.00 am and the closing date for admissions will be 12.00 midnight on Thursday 31 January. Parents will continue to provide birth certificates and other verifying documents to their first preference school. The EA is planning to provide EA assisted support for parents and users of the new system. This will be in the form of a telephone service, enhanced website content and a number of face to face drop in clinics
in January 2019. We will provide you with more information once we receive it.

We will also be providing a number of dates in January (8th, 10th and 17th January from 9.00- 10.00), when parents will be invited to our ICT suite to complete the on line application forms and staff will be available to assist at this time.

If you do require any additional information or assistance, please do not hesitate to contact us.

Ugandan Visitors.

Father Aloysius and Emmanuel from our partner school, St Andrew’s in Uganda visited on the 29th of November. They enjoyed a cup of tea with the staff and a catch up of how things are going in St Andrew’s. They then spent some time with our Primary 4 children taking about how some children will be writing letters to exchange with some of the pupils from Uganda. Mrs Fyfe also visited the P4 classes and gave a PowerPoint presentation on her trip to Uganda, explaining what life is like there before Holy Trinity began fundraising for the school.
