Ballykeel Primary School & Nursery Unit

Extended Schools


Our school is in the very fortunate position of being funded under the Extended Schools Initiative.  This entails providing the children with an extensive and wide-ranging programme of additional clubs and activities. 

This programme has been specifically designed to complement the extra-curricular After School Clubs that are already offered by school staff, and to enhance attainment in Literacy and Numeracy.

This year P2-P7 children will be offered the ‘Power Hour’ club which will focus on mindfulness and the mental health and well-being of your child. We aim to encourage and promote the ‘Take 5 - Steps to Wellbeing’ through doing a wide range of fun and interactive activities each week.

Power Hour club will give your child opportunities to:

  • Be active and healthy - outdoor/indoor games and activities
  • Connect with others – discussion and teamwork challenges
  • Keep learning and developing new skills e.g. sewing, baking, ICT, art and craft
  • Grow in confidence and self-esteem

P2-P3 Mon - Thurs (2:00-2:50pm)

P4 Every Tuesday (2:45-3:45pm) 

P5-P7 Every Tuesday (3-4pm)

The club will begin after the half-term holidays.
