Mad Hair Day, Pumpkin Carving Competition, Hallowe'en Lunch and to end it all the Hallowe'en Disco!  It was a busy day but as you can see from the faces below it was enjoyed by everyone.

We had a very difficult time choosing the winners for our pumpkin carving competition which was organised by Siobahn and her hardworking team in the kitchen.  As you can see from the pictures we had loads of fantastic designs to choose from. 

Click the pictures below to see our winners with their prize winning pumpkins.

Our annual Mad Hair Day has again been a huge success.  Thanks to all the parents who put in such an effort to create weird and wonderful hairdos.  Money raised will go to PTA funds who are currently raising funds for ICT and PE equipment.

Day 1 of the Year 6 Bushmills Residential Trip and the children have all been enjoying some orienteering.

Day 2 and the children have enjoyed a walk from Ballintoy Harbour to Whitepark Bay around the headland.  Wet feet, muddy clothes but great fun!

In the afternoon then it was time to head off down the River Bann.

FOODBANK COLLECTION
Thank you to everyone who supported our harvest foodbank collection – we collected over 500 items to help those less fortunate. The Chairperson of the School Council, Daisy McCook and the Vice-Chairperson, Olivia Ogle handed over the items to Peter Rollins from Ballymoney Food Bank.

Ditch the Dark Day

Ditch the Dark Day was great fun! We made sure that we were nice and bright so we could be seen as we travelled to school in the dark. We had 45% of pupils travelling actively to school. Keep it up!

Causeway Business Education Partnership, in partnership with Ulster University and Causeway Enterprise Agency invited our Year 7 children to their event celebrating STEM – All SySTEM’s Go! at the Ulster University Coleraine Campus.

All SySTEM’s Go! event promotes awareness, appreciation and understanding of Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths through a variety of workstations and activities.  Our children really enjoyed their day.  We think we have some budding scientists of the future!

DR BIKE

Dr Bike came to visit and checked that all our bikes were in good working order!

Year 7 had a great day at RADAR, Belfast.  Have a look below at the different scenarios they took part in to teach them to be more aware of their own safety.  For more information about RADAR visit http://www.radarni.co.uk/

Harvesting the Crop

Watch out Alan Titchmarsh!  We have our own budding young gardener in the school!  In the Spring Dylan planted some vegetables.  We are very impressed with his bumper crop of celery, cabbages, carrots and potatoes.
