St Therese of Lisieux receive Sustrans Gold 'Bike It' Award

St Therese of Lisieux Primary School, Belfast, became the first primary school in Northern Ireland to receive the Gold Sustrans ‘Bike It’ award. Health Minister, Simon Hamilton, came along to present the prestigious award to all of the children that cycle to school every day. With the help of Sustrans NI, the children put on a performance of cycling proficiency to showcase their bicycle skills for the Minister. The morning was brought to an exciting close with a wonderful display of BMX tricks from professional riders.

A huge thank you to all of our Bike It Champions who put in so much effort and commitment to help us achieve this wonderful award!!

Folktown Art Works is launched with the help of St Mary's Primary School

Primary 6 and 7 pupils from St Mary’s Primary School, Divis Street, Belfast, recently helped launch the Folktown Art Works in Bank Square near St Mary’s Church, Chapel Lane.

One of the art works celebrated street games with a particular reference to ‘Dusty Bluebells’, the 1970’s documentary featuring children from St Mary’s Primary School sharing their favourite street games and rhymes.

Holy Evangelists' receives the Onus Workplace Charter Silver Award

Holy Evangelists' Primary School and Nursery Unit in Twinbrook, has achieved the Onus Workplace Charter Silver Award for being a safe school and safe employer. Staff and parents in 2014/15 took part in training in domestic violence and abuse, so that those who took part had the knowledge and skills to recognise anyone affected by these issues. 


The school staff work together to ensure our school is a safe place for all who work and visit; this includes our children, their families and any visitor who enters our doors.


The school is also continuing to develop the Social Guardian Helping Hands Programme in Key Stage 2 this year, as we believe it works hand in glove with our award and is delivered through our PD&MU curriculum, by assisting teachers in understanding the impact of domestic violence in the lives of children and their families, assists teachers to develop early intervention and prevention strategies in relation to all children who do not feel safe and it creates a shared language and tools for teachers and children to discuss feelings and safety.


Holy Evangelists' school community believes the onus is on all of us to create a society that has zero-tolerance towards domestic violence or abuse.  We are delighted to gain this award, as it affirms the great pastoral work our staff do in our school, but also beyond the classroom.
