The 'All Stars Programme' which allows pupils to learn about how they can all be respectful, forgiving, honest, helpful, caring and responsible.

Year 5 plays a key element in the school's Shared Education project.  Pupils team up with a class of Year 5 pupils in St. James' Primary School.  For the year they make new friends, travel to St. James's every Wednesday for S.T.E.M. workshops, engage in learning about how each school celebrates Easter and joint family nights of fun learning.

In addition to this is the opportunity for 11 families to attend a Shared Education residential in Bushmills from the 29th to 31st March 2017.

P.5. also love to learn how to write using joined writing and during the year, most children will practice hard and become the proud winners of their 'Cursive Writing Licence'.
