Educational Trips


Our P6 and 7 children enjoyed the most wonderful week of activities in Bushmills Residential Centre. For many it was their first time staying away from home. Everyone had a great time,  enjoyed the wonderful opportunities and guaranteed it was a week they'll never forget!  

 We also have a Christmas trip to the Pantomime in Millennium Forum for P4/5 and The Grand Opera House for P6/7 while the P1 -3 children enjoy a trip to the cinema. We also have a end of year fun trip.


Many other Educational Trips take place throughout the year in the various classes. These trips are linked to topic work and enhance learning in World Around Us.

Last Year the trips were as follows:

Foundation Stage:  The Beach Magilligan 

Key Stage 1:

Northern Ireland War Memorial

Armagh Planetarium 

Key Stage 2: 

Trip to Portrush/ Bangor

Seamus Heaney Centre

 In addition, each class also visits a number of places in our local village e.g. Dominos Pizza, Ditty's Bakery, Moyola Precision Engineering, Post Office etc. As a school committed to developing positive relationships within our community and with local schools, our children also participate in trips as part of Shared Education with New Row Primary School.
