Carrickfergus Model Primary School

Minister for Education Visit

We were delighted to welcome the Minister for Education to our school this afternoon. Issues discussed focused on School Restart and infrastructure. Our fabulous Primary 7 School Councillors ensured the most important voices in education were heard too.

Friendship Week
During November, we held our annual Friendship Week. Have a look at the colouring in competition winners in each class. The judges were a difficult lot to impress - our very own Anti-Bullying Ambassadors!
