A warm welcome back to all our pupils, parents and staff. A special word of welcome to our new pupils, Ronan, Shaylyn and Maja and to all our children beginning Primary 1 and Nursery. We also welcome to St Columba’s our new teachers Miss Coyle and Mr Murphy and our new classroom assistant Mrs Jackie Kirk. A massive thank you to everyone for getting the school ready for the new school year under such difficult and challenging circumstances. All the pupils are looking extremely smart in their new school uniforms. Girls are allowed to wear their dresses until Hallowe’en (weather permitting). The school tie is an important part of our uniform and should be worn on a daily basis. Ties are available from the school office. Pupils must bring their P.E. uniform on their allocated P.E. days. N.B. Pupils will not be permitted to do P.E. in shoes. Dark trainers must be worn by all pupils on a daily basis.
