Here in Newport NS we always like to support the local community and local businesses, especially those run by past pupils!

When you are shopping for your child's school stationery items, why not pop in to Ashling's on Main Street.  Ashling has a copy of all the class book lists, and can put the items together for you and have ready for collection.

Many thanks to the parents for organising this lovely activity

For that reason I am not putting any pressure on you to complete any of the following activities. The children may not want to engage at all as their motivation levels ha...

Dear parents and children,

I hope that you are all keeping well and are happy at home. This has been a trying time for everyone. Despite being very confined you are doing very well.

Thank you for completing lessons and for keeping up with your schoolwork. Today marks the start of the Easter break which will run for the next two weeks. Children should take a break from formal lessons and enjoy playing and resting. Your teachers w...

Great to see the whole country pulling together to make sure our children don't miss out during this challenging time.

You can also watch online, where you will...
