Pupil Of The Week

At Ballykeel Primary School we are keen to recognise the achievements of our children. Every week teachers pick a "Pupil of the Week". This can be given for all sorts of things - good behaviour, helping others, work in class and so on. Pupils are presented with a special certificate, prize and sticker during Assembly. Their photographs are displayed outside the main office.

Pupil Of The Month

Each month teachers pick a "Pupil of the Month" from their class. These children receive a certificate and enjoy a special "Tea Party with the Principal". Check out the News section to see our latest star pupils.

Positive Playground Award

Every day playground supervisors fill out a positive playground chart to indicate good behaviour at break and lunch times. At the end of each month the two classes (P1-P4 and P5-P7) with the highest score on their chart are awarded the Sandra Stewart cup for positive playtimes and can choose from a range of rewards. 

The winning classes are:

September - P2AM and P7JH

October - P2JT and P6BE

Other Stars

Star Pupils can also be children who perhaps win awards or recognition for sporting or musical achievements outside of school.  

We also reward good attendance with a Chill-Out Day; and good uniform with a treat box for the class.
