Primary 7 – June Events

Primary 7 – Month of June
After a very busy and successful year, our Primary 7 children will finish with a busy month in June.
Below is a list of planned activities. Please complete the attached sheet and return to school.
Thursday 15th June                   Day at the Movies
A day at the movies has been organised as a celebration for their final year at primary school. The children will come to school dressed as a character from a film or just be an extra (‘own clothes’).  There will be a charge of £3 to include lunch, popcorn and drinks.(money to be brought to school)
Monday 12th June                     Leavers’ Mass  St. Joseph’s Church 7pm
This is our Primary 7 ‘Graduation’ celebration. It is always a very moving occasion, especially for those families for whom this will be their last contact with Our Lady of the Missions.  We would ask that children wear full school uniform, shirt and tie.  I look forward to welcoming family and friends.  Children will be presented with a bible, funded by our P.S.A.  All family and friends are welcome to join us. Please indicate number on return slip.
Monday 19th June                     Leavers’ Ceilidh  6.45pm – 9.00pm       School Hall
The final celebration for our leavers is a ceilidh to be held in the school hall. The children will be piped into the hall and we ask all parents to come into the Mensa to form a Guard of Honour to welcome the children.  A finger buffet will be provided by the Parent Staff Association. At the end of the ceilidh, parents are invited to come into the hall where the children will sing their farewell songs!

Primary 7 Leavers’ Mass and Leavers’ Ceilidh

The children of Primary 7 will come together in St. Joseph’s Church, Clarkston, at 7pm on Monday 12th June, to celebrate their 7 years at Our Lady of the Missions before moving on to Secondary school. All families and friends are welcome.
