Education Minister Visits Carntall PS 
On 26 February 2016, the staff and pupils of Carntall PS had the privilege of First Minister, Arlene Foster and party colleague and Minister for Social Development Lord Morrow visiting their school. 
Greeted with a presentation of flowers, the distinguished guests enjoyed a tour of the school and conversed with the pupils, giving them a real flavour of what makes Carntall such a vibrant and innovative School and a place where ‘Children Come First’. 
Speaking following the visit, the First Minister said “It was lovely to meet the staff and pupils of Carntall Primary School. The enthusiasm shown by all was a real testament to the spirit of the school. It was a pleasure to see the school and all the hard work that goes into making it not just a school, but a community. I wish each pupil every success with the future career paths they take and I look forward to seeing Carntall continuing to grow as a special part of this quiet rural area”. 
School Principal, Mr Roger Clarke expressed his delight at the First Minister and Parliamentary guests visiting Carntall PS, “We are extremely proud of our school and were thrilled by our guests’ enthusiasm for what they had seen and their interaction with the pupils and staff alike”.“As a School, we strive to help every child feel welcomed, connected and a part of our Carntall family as well as providing them with a highly-engaging educational experience.” “It was an absolute pleasure to share that experience with our guests today and to give the children, staff and wider school community, a wonderful day to remember”.

RSPB visit to launch our participation in the 2016 'Big School's Bird Watch' 
In January, we had a visit from the RSPB's Senior Conservation Officer and past pupil, Claire Barnett. Claire led a very exciting workshop with our P6&7 pupils, helping to launch our participation in the 2016 'Big School's Bird Watch'. During the workshop, we spotted a diverse range of birds in our 'species rich' school grounds and were especially delighted to spot the little blue tits beginning to make their nests in some of our bird boxes.
