*The Fashion Night in Longstone Hall last Friday proved to be a big success for the Friends of Moneydarragh Primary School. Thanks to everyone who supported the event and took part on this fun night, which was primarily for the Girls!
*The Youth Club had an end of year trip to Lisburn Leisureplex, coincidentally situated not far from Longstone St., on Sunday. Two busloads of children, along with parents and guardians, departed Longstone on Sunday morning and firstly went to the pool for some thrills and spills on the slides and in the water. After all that action everyone headed for lunch before going to the omniplex to watch a choice of movies. It was early evening when everyone arrived back to Longstone safely and thanks to the Youth Club committee for arranging the trip which by all accounts was a very enjoyable day.
