Update from East Coast Adventures - Thursday 9.30pm
Today has been a very busy day! We are all completely exhausted... And the kids are tired too!
This morning we went wet bouldering in the cold and rain. But that didn't stop us having fun...
In the afternoon we went zip lining and crate building! We finished off the evening with a game of archery.
To make you smile we put the teachers through their paces in the mud!

What's Happening in Springfield Primary School?
Raising Money for Charity
Katie Beattie from Primary 4 recently had her hair cut off for charity. As you can see from the photo her hair had gotten very long and she had spent years growing it. In total she raised £1605 and the money is being used to pay medical fees for a very sick friend.
Well done Katie, we are very proud of you!
As part of our school development plan we have been looking at ways to engage with parents in school. We are holding a number of classes during April and May for parents ranging from 'Phonics Help!' to cookery and fitness. On Tuesday 25th April we held a cookery class which was enjoyed by all! Here are some of the photos.
Coffee Morning for Mother's Day
On Friday 4th March we held a coffee morning in the resource room to raise money and celebrate Mother's Day. It was a great success!
Thank you to all who came and all who provided buns and cakes.

Belfast Speech and Drama Festival - 2016
Springfield PS had another fantastic year at the Belfast Speech and Drama Festival in the Lyric Theatre. We are very proud of all 36 children who took part. Children took part in a variety of verse speaking and duologue classes. Taking part takes effort, motivation and confidence to learn a poem, practise it and then perform it in front of an audience and adjudicator.
Every child performed brilliantly and everyone scored above 80. This is a fantastic result for Springfield.

On Friday 3rd December, over 70 adults celebrated the school's 100th birthday in the City Hall. Among the guests were the Chief Inspector, Mr Stanley Gowdie and his wife Heather, the deputy Lord Mayor, Mr Willian Humphrey, past and present staff and past pupils.
Guests enjoyed a drinks reception, a delicious meal provided by Posh Nosh and entertainment which included prizes and dancing.
It may have been a cold evening outside but those who attended enjoyed the warmth and grandeur of the City Hall setting. Those who spoke, referred to the school with pride and had many fond memories of their time spent in the school.
Everyone wished the school well as it entered its second centenary!
Christmas Centenary Disco
On a very snowy morning, the P1-7 pupils enjoyed the last of the centenary celebrations. It was a school disco held in the assembly hall. Children danced and enjoyed party games and prizes.
Just over half the school attended because many were stranded at home in the deepest snow Belfast has seen for sometime. Thankfully school finished at noon on Friday 17th December to allow everyone to enjoy the festive season and weather.
