Celebrating different faiths

EventsPosted by Mrs McIlwrath Tue, June 17, 2014 03:39PM
In Primary Four some children made their First Holy Communion. They are now able to receive this sacrament every time they go to mass. The Primary Four classes went with them to mass to see them receiving the Body Of Christ. It was very interesting, especially when most of the children had never been inside a chapel. In our school we have many different religions.
There are several denominations of faith such as Catholic, Protestant, Hindu and some of us have no religion.
The children saw lots of statues and heard prayers and music. They were all able to join in with The Lord's Prayer.
also shook hands with each other and wished each other peace. This is called the Sign of peace.

Integration Poem

This is the poem written by Aimee from P7 to celebrate ten years of integration in our school. The words really reflect the ethos of Round Tower IPS. Well done Aimee – this is a wonderful poem!


We are integrated

Everyone makes mistakes

But we are integrated

People from all over the world come to our school

As we are integrated

Disability doesn’t mean disadvantage

For we are integrated

We support rather than discriminate against our fellow pupils

Because we are integrated

We respect and value each other’s beliefs

Therefore we are integrated

We have enthusiasm for each other’s differences

Showing we are integrated

We accept friends for who they are, not what they are

We are different because we represent all walks of life under one roof

We are individuals

We are Round Tower

First Confession

Congratulations to the P3 pupils who made their First Confession on 3rd April 2014 in St Comgall's Church. The children have worked very hard to learn their Act of Sorrow and lots of songs such as: We Are the Greatest, Together and I'm Sorry God. The pupils enjoyed hearing The Good Shepherd Story and all took part in a role play of the story. The pupils received their sacrament of Penance with pupils from St Comgall's Primary. Well done P.3's for singing so nicely and remembering your prayers.

We are celebrating Integration Week from March 3rd- March 7th. The theme is "Building Bridges" and all the children have been busy in Art. The pupils have been looking at local bridges and have all tried to do an observational drawing of the bridge. Have a look at their work. Some budding artists!

Each pupil made a link for the school chain to coincide with Integration Week's theme of "Building Bridges." The pupils decorated their link and also wrote why they enjoyed attending an Integrated School. Our school chain will be linked to other chains from Integrated Schools on 7th March at Stormont. In addition to making the links each class in Art will draw or paint a local bridge.
