As outlined in the May newsletter, we are interested in canvassing views from parents regarding the Shared Education project that we have been undertaking with Parkhall PS. Please click below to access and complete the short parent survey.
We hope to collate responses at the end of the month so would ask that you undertake the survey before May 28th. We will also be asking students to complete a short survey to share their views. Both sets of responses will help us to decide as a school on the best way forward for this project.
Many thanks for your support and participation.

The Primary 6 children have been working very hard on their Shared Education Project together. The children have been designing and creating their own product to sell to the public at the Junction on 19th November. The children are working within mixed groups and have all been given a role within their business, such as, managing director, event organiser and marketing executive. We have been working closely with a Young Enterprise professional, Emma and also the manager of Ulster Bank in Antrim, Jean.
The profits from this event will be given to local charities that the children have researched and selected. Here are several pictures of the project so far.

Building on our first, small projects last year, we have expanded the programme so that every child is involved. Each class is taking part in an 8 week project and P6 will take part in a 3 week Peer Mediation project. The breadth of experiences and activities have also been expanded to cover a wider range of the NI curriculum.
to develop close links;
to give our pupils greater opportunities and wider experiences;
to develop more self-confidence and self-awareness in our pupils;
and to develop a wider sense of community.

We started our project with Parkhall PS in Term 2 with Peer Mediation training together. All P6 pupils had a shared session in one of the schools and then travelled to Antrim Board Centre for a half day training session together. P4 and 5 pupils had a STEM project over several sessions where they did a variety of science and mathematics activities. P1 and P2 pupils studied the author Julia Donaldson and had two play sessions together before having a fun day at Antrim Castle Gardens with their parents. The schools also worked together to perform a shared concert with instrumental and choir performances. Hosted by Parkhall PS, it was very well attended and enjoyed by parents and friends from both schools.
