Carrickfergus Model Primary School

After School Clubs

Achieving success in all areas!

 We are very fortunate to have a highly dedicated and professional staff. This is evidenced through high quality classroom practice, openness and participation in new initiatives and involvement in so many enriching activities that go beyond the classroom such as extra-curricular activities, residential educational visits etc.

 Each year we offer a range of extra-curricular activities. Some of these are run by outside providers so will incur a cost. Others are run by our dedicated teaching staff. Examples of some of these are:

  • Morning Supervision (from 8.00am – no cost)
  • Breakfast Club (from 8.00am)
  • Scripture Union
  • Jumping Clay
  • Football
  • Rugby
  • Hockey

Schools Finals Tournament

On Wednesday the school hockey team headed to the Newtownabbey and Carrickfergus schools finals tournament, and they certainly ended the season on a high.  With 14 schools in this league it wasn’t an easy task but the whole team put in 100% from the start and showed true Carrickfergus Model spirit and determination. EVERY girl gave her all and it paid off with every match being not only won, but with a clean sheet! Not a goal got past them. It has been amazing to watch these girls progress this year and we hope they know how proud we, and the whole school, are of their positive attitudes, sportswomanship and hardwork. A group of true hockey heroes

Golftastic Awards!

Congratulations to these wonderful golfers who received green band awards, blue band awards, orange band awards and AMAZINGLY  gold band awards. The tutor told everyone present in assembly that the pupils at the Model have received more gold band awards than any other school (and this is the highest level out of all of the colours). Furthermore, a few boys in P4 have even gone beyond this and achieved their 'Skill bands'. Fabulous work everyone. Watch out Rory McIlroy!

Ulster Hockey Coaching Clinic

Yesterday the Hockey Team was invited to attend a Hockey Coaching Clinic organised by Belfast High School and led by Shirley McCay from Ulster and Ireland. It was a great opportunity for the girls to go along and be coached by Shirley and also the Belfast High School hockey coaches. The girls enjoyed learning new skills and participating in different drills, with Shirley on hand to give tips and advice.  The girls worked hard, listened to the advice and showed off some skills at the end in the matches. Great manners and respect was shown by all girls. It was super to watch how supportive every girl was of her teammates, the encouragement of each other and in particular how supportive the P7 girls were of the two P6 girls who joined us for the first time, and gave it their all! Thanks goes to all involved for the invitation, a great day, parent support and for help with lifts to get the girls down to Belfast High. We look forward to our tournament here next week!
