Welcome to Hazelwood Integrated Primary

The proposed Translink strike on Wednesday 6th May has been postponed. The buses will run normally on that day.
A reminder that the children are off on Monday and Thursday.
Community In Dialogue
Children and young people gather at Hazelwood IPS to combat hate crime. The aim was to invite the wider community to explore ways of combatting racism and prejudice.

We are running a free parenting programme, focusing on parenting teenagers. It will start on Wednesday 18th March at 9.20-10.20am and will run for 6 weeks. It is run by Lynne, the school’s Jigsaw counsellor and will take place in the new LSU. If parents are interested please ask either in the office, their child’s class teacher or Miss Agnew for a leaflet.

This was a not to be missed evening for all parents. Showing how we can monitor and keep our children safe in this ever increasing technological age. There were some frightening statistics of just how easily young children can access inappropriate material from the internet and on social media sites. The evening advised parents of the controls they can put in place as an open internet is unsafe for children. It demonstrated the skills needed to control unwanted content and to provide a safe internet for your family.
We are encouraging the children to lead a healthy lifestyle with eating healthily, taking exercise and looking after their bodies. We are also concentrating on keeping them safe on the roads and teaching them about Stranger Danger. We would welcome you posting photos of your child's endeavours on Facebook or our Twitter account. Also you can leave a comment on the website or even some healthy recipes you have tried. Children will receive prizes for healthy lunchboxes throughout the week and house points on the Wednesday for walking to school. There are lots of events planned - just check out the calendar.

Education works better when you get involved
May we remind all parents that we need up to date contact numbers in case of emergency or school closure due to bad weather. Contact the office to inform the school of any changes please.
The P.T.A. have purchased two defibrillators for the school. This is an extra safety measure to enhance our first aid measures within the school.

Congratulations everyone for helping to get the third

The choir were delighted to be invited by NICIE to take part in Belfast's Culture Evening. They sang beautifully and had a wonderful time.
TITANIC RELAUNCHED – A Voyage of discovery
The drawing rooms at Titanic were the venue for the launch of ‘Titanic Science’ – a teaching resource which investigates the science of the Titanic story. This project was led by Hazelwood Primary’s Jim McDaid who developed the resources with funding from the Primary Science Teaching Trust.
Over the past year a committed group of teachers have worked together to develop this resource – it is innovative and practical. The Department of Education and the Education and Library Boards have shown great interest in the potential of this project. Plans are afoot to develop and distribute it widely. In tandem with this a teacher training programme will soon be rolled out.
Hazelwood is very proud to be part of the creation of this wonderful resource – the fascinating story of the Titanic will be told in all schools across the United Kingdom and we will still maintain, “it was alright when it left here”.
