Nursery and P1 places in September
Please ensure that you complete the relevant forms and send them back to school as soon as possible.

Cross Country Finals
Pupils from Cliftonville Integrated will be participating in the Cross Country Finals in Ormeau Park tomorrow, Thursday 3rd May. We would like to wish the boys and girls good luck and hope that it will be a fun experience!

Parent Teacher and Friends Association (PTFA)
This Friday will be a non-uniform day and we would ask pupils to bring in £1 which will go to fund activities run by the PTFA.

SCHOOL GOVERNOR ELECTIONS
During the remainder of the current academic year, we will be required to follow procedures designed to assist with reconstituting our Board of Governors. There are four main categories of governor – EA representatives, Transferor, Trustees, Parent representatives and two Teacher governors. In due course elections will take place for Teacher and Parent representatives. For further information and application forms to apply to be a EA representative, please visit:

The Department of Education (DE) is looking to attract people from all sections of local communities in becoming school governors.

School Holidays in May
Please note that the school will be closed on Monday 7th May and again from Friday 25th to Tuesday 29th May.

Appointments and Messages
As you know, from 12:30pm onwards there is only one member of staff manning the school office. There are still a number of parents phoning and asking to pass on messages to children or arriving to pick up children early. We will always attempt to facilitate ‘emergency’ medical appointments and urgent messages but would ask parents to work with us on this. Please discuss and agree pick up arrangements at breakfast with your children. Pupils should only be removed from school for appointments in the case of acute medical need.

Online Safety
I have enclosed a leaflet on the very popular game FORTNITE. Please take the time to read this as there may be things that you were not aware of.

Good Luck!
Cliftonville FC takes part in their first Irish Cup final for many years. We all have our favourite teams but we just wanted to wish The Reds all the best for the match on Saturday and say that the bunting along the Cliftonville Road creates a carnival atmosphere that matches the occasion.
