'Learning together for a better tomorrow'

Y1B

Welcome to Year 1OB

 

A child is like a butterfly in the wind.

Some can fly higher than others,

but each one flies the best it can.

 

Why compare one against the other?

Each one is different.

Each one is special.

Each one is beautiful.

People Who Help Us - WAU Topic

Auntie Julie - works for the fire service in the operating office.

She has a very important job as she takes telephone calls from

the public who are reporting a fire using 999.

She reminded the boys and girls in Y1 OB that they all

should know their address and number of their house

just anyone have to ever call for help.

 

Julie also brought a team of fight fighters with her

from Portadown Firestation and they came in the fire engine.

We had a special assembly with visitors Dean and Glenn telling us about their trip to Swaziland in South Africa.  Along with their team of people from Northern
Ireland they have been helping young orphan children  and their project has included building a school as well as providing safe drinking water. 

It is hoped in May that the children's Swaziland Choir in conjunction with Millington Primary School and Clounagh  Junior High School will  hold a special concert to raise funds.

Millington children have been given a challenge to fill an empty water bottle with coins to give to these children to help provide drinking water.  It is hoped that every child will be able to contribute regardless of the amount.  Thank you for your continued support!
