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. Extended Schools activities are taken by paid professionals under the supervision of Miss Kane who co-ordinates the scheme.
