Today we held our annual sports day. Despite the wet weather the children had a great time and didn't let anything dampen the mood. 

We had a large crowd of parents and former pupils and it was wonderful to welcome them all back to school. 

As usual our wonderful  parents association were there to look after us and we are very grateful for their help. They also sold very tasty hot dogs on the day as part of their fundraising efforts and they pass on their thanks for everyone's support.

Adding to the party atmosphere was parent Paul MacDonnell from Hushabye Farm Alpacas who brought the Alpacas down and the children had a wonderful meeting them. 

Finally there was also ice cream on hand courtesy of Glenisk who kindly sponsored the ice cream van and we are very grateful to them for this kind gesture. 
Finally huge thanks to the teachers and pupils esp 6th class who helped setup our stations.
