It was a great honour to welcome Minister Weir and the First Minister to Jones Memorial Primary School today. Among our esteemed guests were Anne Marie Cox and Beth Harding from Sustrans alongside Bishop Elect Rev Canon Dr Ian Ellis and Anne Beattie from our Board of Governors.

Those present were treated to an Active Travel themed working lunch. Pupils from Primary One, via video, sang their favourite Nursery Rhyme, “The Wheels on the Bus.” This included an additional verse, pertinent to the Global Pandemic about wearing masks on public transport. Pupils from P6 & P7 shared a lively debate on the values of walking and biking to and from school and the First Minister congratulated them heartily quipping that she felt that her job might indeed be ‘at risk’ due to the competency the children demonstrated.

During the ceremony, Anne Marie and Beth formally presented the school with the Sustrans Gold Award. We are only the 7th School in Northern Ireland and the 1st School in Fermanagh to be recognised for our commitment to healthier lifestyles. Thanks must go to our School Community, Parents, Pupils, Governors and wider circle of friends.

Lunch was an opportunity to discuss the Sustrans Award and the school infrastructure. Both Ministers were presented with gifts to mark the occasion and both were very pleased with their tour of the school.

Mrs Isherwood, School Principal commented

“I am delighted to have the opportunity to welcome the First Minister and the Education Minister to our school on a day when we received our Sustrans Gold Award. The discussion was enjoyable and those present were fully engaged in the topics covered”
