'Opening Doors of Opportunity Together'

WELCOME TO

MEADOW BRIDGE PRIMARY SCHOOL

Anti-Bullying Week
The boys and girls in Meadow Bridge have loved participating in Anti-Bullying Week for 2021. The positive theme of ‘One Kind Word’ has been a tremendous message to consider in our school environment. We had a colourful start to the week by taking part in ‘Odd Socks Day’ on Monday. The range of colours and designs was fantastic – a reminder that we are to embrace all of our differences and respect what makes each individual in Meadow Bridge unique.

 

During the week we have had the opportunity to take part in different age-appropriate activities to consider the theme of ‘One Kind Word’ and think about how one kind word can provide a moment of hope. We also loved discussing with our children how ‘kindness fuels kindness’ and how our actions can fire a chain reaction that powers positivity. We hope to see the benefits of a week like this run throughout the rest of our school year and we would like to thank our entire school community for taking part.

 

If you would like access to further tools and resources on this theme, the Anti-Bullying Alliance has put together a ‘Parent and Carer Pack’ which can be downloaded here https:// anti-bullyingalliance.org.uk/anti-bullying-week/parents-and-carers

School Council Badge Presentation

On Friday 12th November we were delighted to welcome Cllr Stephen Martin, the Mayor of Lisburn & Castlereagh to our Assembly.

He was invited by Mr McCollum to present the badges to the twelve new members of the Meadow Bridge P.S 'School Council'. For more details, visit the School Council page on the website here.

Harvest Foodbank Donations
We are very grateful for our parents and families at this special time of Harvest for the donations to support local foodbanks.

Everything will be distributed between 'GAP Ministries' and Lisburn Foodbank. Your support will make a big difference for many families in need. Thank you.

TRACTOR & VINTAGE CAR RUN -

FRIDAY 10th SEPTEMBER

PTA were delighted to be able to kick off the 2021-22 year with our annual Tractor and Vintage Car Run.  We had 65 vehicles of all shapes and sizes registered for the ‘Run’ this year and despite a very wet afternoon the rain stayed away and we were able to enjoy a fun evening outside.

We would like to say a big thank you to everyone who attended the event, either as a participant or as a spectator, we really appreciate the support and it was lovely to see so many people enjoying themselves while helping to raise money for Meadow Bridge Primary School and also for the P.I.P.S Hope and Support charity.
