Helen Whitney and Lesley Howard from Each Amazing Breath and Jim Morgan Senior Development Officer from Belfast Health Development Unit attended the launch of Amazing Breath- Take 5 in schools. Sacred Heart are the second school to embrace this amazing project which has had immense benefit to the children of Sacred Heart Boys’ Primary School. It is a celebration of the strength, resilience, leadership and warmth of the children and staff at Sacred Heart Primary School, and the successful impact that this project has had on the staff and children of Sacred Heart. It is important to understand the difficulties facing our society and school at the moment and why we strive to think outside the box, with even less money to provide for our young people in schools.
Staff and pupils of Holy Cross Primary School are absolutely delighted to present their new football kit. The kit has been generously sponsored by Moyfab Engineering Limited, Atticall. The children are delighted with the kit which showcases the school colours and unites them in confidence as a team for all their upcoming sporting events. The school would like to thank the Fitzpatrick family for their generosity and extend a special word of thanks to Mrs Ursula Murphy and Mrs Caroline Cunningham for their efforts in making this happen.

Whether you say hola, bonjour or guten tag – On Thursday 26th September Holy Cross Primary school children celebrated European Languages Day by looking at different cultures and languages as they embrace foreign languages in their classes. The children made a wonderful effort in their costumes.
A new meaning has been given to this phrase in Holy Cross Primary School. As an award for exceptional work and contributions to the life of the school, most importantly for showing kindness, pupils will be chosen to receive an invitation to the Principal's office for tea. Each week one pupil from Key stage 1 and one from Key stage 2 will receive an invite. On the first Monday of the month, all the recipients of invitations will be taken to the office for tea and treats! What a way to reward our hard working, enthusiastic boys and girls.

The bi-lingual sacrament, The Rite of Penance, that took place in April at St.MacNissius’ Church, Tannaghmore, was a great success! Tannaghmore school acknowledge the enthusiasm, kindness and co-operation of the Parish Priest, Fr Seán Emerson, whose arrangements for the sacrament enabled the bi –lingual sacrament to run so smoothly. An tAthair Mac Giolla Cathain officiated with Fr Emerson. Dedicated staff helped with the liturgy of the music and the word. The sacrament touched all those present – parents and teachers alike.
