Hello and welcome to the second half of this first term. We're going back as well as forward this month...
With the last week including the annual P6 residential at 'Seaboard', Killyleagh, and our PTA Hallowe'en Family Night, we didn't quite manage to get the pictures up before the break, but there are some great memories to share!
Hallowe'en at Andrews gets bigger and better by the year - thanks to everyone who turned out and made it another fantastic event. And what about the pumpkins - wow! We tweeted the fireworks, so here are some pumpkin pics celebrating amazing creative talent among children and parents.
One of our aims this year is to begin a process of 'finding our pupil voice', or rather to develop what we do even more. So, with Mr Magee at Seaboard, the Bike Crew were left in charge of organising the first of this year's Active Travel Bike/Walking Buses on the last day of the half-term. Along with the new and very welcome support of 1st Comber Presbyterian Church (in allowing us to use their car park), we owe the children a big vote of thanks. Also to all the staff who helped on the morning. There'll be more to come on this front, of course - and keep an eye for our next Healthy Breakfast to enjoy after the journey.
Seaboard is a huge highlight of the P6 year at Andrews. We will post a set of pictures on the website separately (on the Gallery page); for now, here are a few 'tasters'.
Now, as we near December, please remember that our Open Day takes place on Friday 2 December 2016, with school tours at 9.30am, 11.15am and 1.15pm. Prospective parents are welcome throughout the day; our own parents are invited to attend in the afternoon. You will have the opportunity to see the school in action, meet the children and teachers and ask any questions about enrolment, the curriculum, our policies or our school development plans. The PTA will also be providing refreshments. Please do try and come along - the buzz comes from the children and they will be delighted to see you!
