St Ronan’s & Bridge IPS Celebration Day Colour Run
On April 11th 2019 the P5, P6 and P7 classes from St Ronan’s and Bridge Integrated Primary School took part in our first ever Colour Run. This was a great success! The Colour Run was held in the grounds of Dromantine Retreat and Conference Centre outside Newry. A big thank you to Dromantine.
Over 300 children completed a course of approximately 5km. There were parents of pupils from both schools there to spectate and assist as marshalls. We also enlisted the help of pupils from Sacred Heart, Abbey Grammar and Newbridge Intergrated College. This celebration was truly a community event and not just for the pupils who completed their 30 hours of shared conatct. As you can see from the photographs, fun was had by all! This will go down as a very special day in our shared education partnership. The children rated it as ‘the best day ever’. Staff had great fun too!
St Ronan’s PS were raised money for Lauren’s Adventures (Lauren is a past pupil of St Ronan’s) and Bridge IPS raised money for the Southern Hospice Services. A joint presentation of cheques has been planned in June.
