What an amazing day we had for our Sponsored Fitness Day. Every class had an intense workout with Francis from the Burns Skill School. Then we walked from 9 to 3 all the way round the school. Every class took a time slot and made sure that every minute was covered. The children worked so hard and were so motivated. Thank you all so much for your support. We are still waiting for some sponsor money to come but we will let you know as soon as we know a final amount!

Well done to our P7 girls, Eva, Lily-May and Talia for winning the Primary STEM challenge 2019. Out of 25 teams they placed 1st and are now excited about the final in June!

A huge well done to our 4 boys who represented Drumlins in the STEM competition.  They were asked to plan and  build a playground with moving parts out of Knex.  Out of 28 schools Max and Rory were placed first and  Jake and Ryan were third! We are very proud of them and wish them well for the next round of the competition.

Drumlins IPS have been continuing to embed global learning across all classes and key stages. One of our most recent areas of study was the ‘banned’ Iceland Advert which highlighted the plight of ‘Rang-Tan’ and his homelessness due to the mass production of Palm oil.

Each class from P3-P7 watched the advert and completed a piece of work ranging from posters, comprehension, research and talking and listening tasks. The children were fully engrossed in this very relevant and current topic; we found it a superb way to develop the children’s awareness of global issues.

Our local Iceland heard about the children’s work and enthusiasm for the cause and donated a giant toy orangutan. Some of the Key stage 2 children have organised a fundraising event with the proceeds going to WWF.

 

 

Our choir were delighted to be invited to Oakridge Care Home to perform some Christmas songs. The choir enjoyed some yummy refreshments too!

 

 

We raised an amazing £240.65 for Save the Children on Christmas jumper day. We all enjoyed a delicious Christmas dinner too!

 

 

What a fantastic Christmas production of “Midwife Crisis’! Well done to all our pupils in P4, P5, P6 and P7 you were brilliant!

 

 

We were delighted to be invited to Ballynahinch Dementia’s Group Christmas dinner. The choir sang and some children performed Christmas songs on their musical instruments. It took place in St Patrick’s church hall and was throughly enjoyed by all.

 

 

Well done to our fabulous Shared Education Choir who performed amazingly at the Community Carol Service. Children from both Drumlins IPS and Christ the King performed together and made us all very proud!
