PATHS  -  Promoting Alternative Thinking Strategies

 

We are delighted that Barnardo’s, the children’s charity, is supporting the delivery of a PATHS programme in St. Anne’s.  The PATHS  programme involves lots of fun activities dealing with important issues such as Feelings, Behaviours, Solving Problems, Making and Keeping Friends and Self-Esteem.  This programme is jointly funded by the Big Lottery and St. Anne’s Primary School.

 

ELKLAN

 

In September 2014 St. Anne’s Primary School started the journey towards becoming an Elklan Accredited Communication Friendly School.  This 5 step programme seeks to improve children’s speech, language and communication throughout the school.  All staff received high quality professional training and children receive speech therapy support in school.  We are now well along the journey and hope to receive accreditation by June 2015.





Breakfast club will be available from 8.00 a.m. Primary 4 - Primary 7 children will be on the playground (if dry) / assembly hall (if wet) from 8.30 a.m.

Breakfast Club
8.00 a.m. - 8.50 a.m. each day
Everyone attending the breakfast club receives a ticket worth 25p This means that any of the 50p specials below only cost 25p Breakfast is the most important meal of the day because it is the first meal eaten after an all night fast. It provides the body with energy for the day ahead. Research shows that children who skip breakfast do not perform so well at school. Parents should encourage children to have an adequate breakfast in the morning. Suitable breakfasts are – breakfast cereals (preferably wholegrain, with no sugar added), boiled egg and toast, baked beans and toast etc. Alternatively you might like to encourage your child to come along to our Breakfast Club: This has proved to be very successful. If your child misses his/her breakfast at home send him/her to the Breakfast Club. Breakfast Club is not only for children. Everyone is Welcome!
