Environmental Fun in the Sun

Today we had fantastic fun. Liz Farnan came into our school and played some great games with us. In KS1 we did a bear hunt to find Broney the Bear, we sang songs, looked for paw prints, listened to stories and even played some bear games. In KS2 we did a bird hunt, learnt about the different bird calls and built our own dens using sticks and string. 
We had great fun today and loved having Liz at our school.

Summer Scheme Week 2

Another great week of our Summer Scheme at Holy Cross.  The children enjoyed another week of games, crafts, pizza making, music and dancing. We would like to thank all the children for their excellent behaviour, beautiful manners and super participation in all activities. 

Friday is our last day of Summer Scheme and we will be having our Teddy Bear's Picnic in the morning session so bring your teddy too!

Have a look at our video to see what we have been at so far this week....  

Summer Scheme Week 1

A fantastic first week of our Summer Scheme at Holy Cross and what a week of fun we had.  The children enjoyed a week of games, crafts, playdough making, music, limbo dancing and smoothie making. We would like to thank all the children for their excellent behaviour, beautiful manners and super participation in all activities.  It made our first week of summer scheme a very enjoyable one!

Cycling Proficiency Scheme

This morning the P7 pupils completed the Cycling Proficiency Scheme.  They all sat (and passed) their theory test. Afterwards, they were awarded their certificates.

Since the Easter break, the children have taken part in practical and theory lessons to help them understand the rules of cycling and improve their ability on a bicycle. Although there has been a great improvement over the course of the scheme, the children fully understand that this has not made them experts or ensure that they will be exempt from danger. They must take great care every time they get on their bikes and always wear a helmet.

Congratulations to all of the children on their success. Cycling is a fun way to stay fit and healthy!

On Friday 11th June 2021, we held our Sports Presentation and afterwards we had a day of fun for the children as they didn't have any summer class trips this year due to Covid-19.

Northern Ireland does the Daily Mile 2021


Today the boys and girls took part in the nationwide Daily Mile as part of the Daily mile’s initiative to promote getting active and looking after your physical and mental wellbeing! It was lovely to have all the children across the school participate at the one time. The children prepared by discussing why the Daily Mile and being active is important to them and they designed their ‘back signs’ to wear as part of the event! It was a lovely, positive start to the day for everyone 😊 #northernirelanddoesthedailymile @_thedailymile 



It is great to see the good weather arrive and seeing the children enjoying themselves outside


In recent times the Easter Bunny would have came personally to hand out all of the wonderful chocolate Easter Eggs that Friends of Holy Cross have kindly purchased, one for every pupil at school!  However due to Covid restrictions this wasn't able to happen.

We would like to thank our wonderful Friends  Committee for purchasing this years Easter Eggs for the children.  They were all delighted.


We had a very special bunnies from P4 & 5 that had their own Easter egg hunt.
