Victoria Square is celebrating it's 10th Birthday! 🎂🎉🎈 To celebrate they ran an Art Competition to create art panels which will be displayed throughout March in the centre. One of our senior pupils Alex Auld came runner up in the Special Schools category!! Well Done Alex!! 😁

Have a look at the link below if you would like to see the pieces that have been created.

S5 have had a busy term so far. We’ve been very sporty, enjoying athletics with Carol on a Monday, and yoga and dance on a Wednesday with S6. We’ve been learning about artist Georgia O’Keeffe in art and taking bugs eye views of flowers, which we’ve drawn in pastels, paint and in felt. We also lead a senior assembly on kindness-it was great fun! -and managed to squeeze in some chillout time for a breakfast club trip to Ashers.

S5 have had an extremely busy few weeks. At Halloween we teamed up with s6 to have a Fryday Friday! Staff cooked an amazing fry for the classes and provided party treats. The children loved this and were well and truly fed and watered and all money is going to Tinylife charity.

We have been making some fabulous tree decorations and treats that we will be selling at the school Christmas fair and also at the Christmas performances. The children have worked so hard on these and especially enjoyed making snowman soup and reindeer poop!! The money raised from this will be split between class funds and Tinylife.

As well as all of this (I did say we were very busy!) we have decided to put together little goodie bags for all of the mummies and daddies who will spend this Christmas in the Neonatal Unit at Antrim Area Hospital. You have really overwhelmed us with your generosity and we have enjoyed making up the goodie bags that will be delivered over the next few weeks when our teacher Leeann returns there for a visit with her wee baby boy. We also managed to make a beautiful hamper for the family room and nurses thanks to the amount of stuff that was sent in.

A huge thanks to everyone who sent in items and supported us on this. The children from nursery classes to the very biggest senior classes have helped with packing and bagging as well as labelling and sorting. Thank you thank you thank you!!!

S5 is a busy sociable class made up of key stage 3 and 4 pupils. We like to make learning fun and focus on the development of independent life skills and social skills. This year we are beginning the ASDAN Transition Challenge module. We enjoy taking part in our senior clubs which allow us to mix with other classes for subjects like Maths, Literacy, Cookery, Art and Music. From time to time we enjoy getting out for breakfast clubs, shopping trips to practice our money handling skills and special treats. One of our favourite things to do is develop our mini enterprises to raise money for class funds and charity.
