Shared Education is an important part of our life here in St Mary’s Primary School. This is our third year participating in the Shared Education Signature Project with Portglenone Primary School.
All pupils from Primary 1 to Primary 7, are involved in a wide range of curricular activities throughout the academic year. This year our Foundation Stage pupils are taking part in Literacy and Learning Through Play and our Key Stage 1 pupils are involved in Shared PE and Art. Our Primary 5 pupils are participating in World Around Us lessons through the Shared Salmon Project while Primary 6 meet regularly for Literacy, ICT and Personal Development and Mutual Understanding sessions. It is an exciting year for our Primary 7 pupils as they are participating in the Junior Entrepreneur Programme with their friends in Portglenone PS.
Both pupils and staff thoroughly enjoy learning together and developing friendships through the Shared Education sessions. Keep an eye out for some photographs of our shared learning in the Gallery over the next couple of months.
