We celebrated receiving the Excellence in Integration Award with a whole school assembly on Friday 24th March. This is the second time we have received this prestigious award.We are the first Primary School to do so.
As part of Integration month each class produced an Art display on the theme of " remembering" . Parents then came to view our wonderful art display at an Art Exhibition on Thurs 23rd March.
At at our special assembly we all enjoyed watching the Key Stage 2 pupils perform an integration drama and a pupil from each class described how they created their piece of art for the Art Exhibition. Thank you to our Integration Governors:Mrs Cawley and Mr Cosby for attending our assembly.

For Integration month, all of the classes in Round Tower took the time to create their own art pieces to match the theme.
P1 were remembering a class visitor who came to class to talk about her culture.
P1/2 were remembering their first friend
P2 were remembering their first day of school
P3 were remembering their first family holiday
P3/4 were thinking about all the special people and memories in their hearts
P4/5 were thinking about their favourite family memory
P5 made a memory tree of their favourite school memory
P5/6 created a memory lane of their favourite school memory
P6/7 created their own memory boxes of their favourite school trip
P7 were recreating their favourite integration memory from Round Tower
I think you'll agree they look amazing! It really brightens up our hall and helped us to remember all the great memories we have of our integrated education!

We all celebrated the theme of Harmony for Integration Week. We all thought of symbols to represent harmony. Then joined all our symbols together to make a Harmony Quilt. One person from each class drew a child depicting harmony for our "Together in Harmony Display."

Congratulations to our P7 pupils who have completed their Peer Mediation training. Our mediators have been chosen for this year and will be available in the playground to help other pupils with petty problems. Pupils will be able to find them easily because they will be wearing their orange jackets.
A big thank you to all the parents who attended the Peer Mediation assembly on Monday 7th December.

P5/6 were very lucky this week,
they had visitors from Latvia and Lithuania in to talk to us about the food in
their country. Timonas’s mum told them all about the weather, sports and
sights in Lithuania . She even brought them in some tree cake and
mushroom cakes to taste, they loved them!
Alekss’s step dad told them all
about the natural ingredients he uses when he makes Latvian food. They
use a lot of vegetables and their food tends to fill them up more than our food
might. It was very interesting.
Miss Carruther's class also had Marta's mum in to talk about Portugal. The children had lots of questions to ask her. It was really interesting to compare our country to Portugal. The pupils were very interested to hear how school is different in Portugal. They learned that children don't start school until they are 6 years old!!

We celebrated Integration Week from Mar 2nd to 9th March. The theme was Horizons and each pupil had to decorate a sun ray for the whole school Horizon Display. Each pupil had to think of an adjective, emblem or logo to symbolise Integrated Schools.
Some pupils went to Parkhall Integrated College to complete a Horizon with other pupils from Integrated Schools. The pupils really enjoyed the activity and particularly enjoyed working with other children from another Integrated School.
We think they produced amazing Horizons!!!
