At St John’s Primary School we provide education for all of the children in the local community striving to deliver high quality teaching and learning to ensure every child reaches their potential.

As Principal of St John’s Primary School and Carnlough Community Nursery I believe that a strong foundation is vital to ensuring the best possible outcomes for every child.

St John’s Primary School and Carnlough Community Nursery welcome pupils from all traditions.

Establishing close links with home and the community is central to all our teaching and learning and we encourage opportunities to work together.

Celebrating World Book Month

As part of World Book Month St John's P.S and Carnlough Community Nursery were delighted to have a day of stories and song provided by the storyteller Steve Lally from Co. Kildare and our very own Feargal Lynn!

All the children from Nursery through to Primary 7 were enthralled by Steve's storytelling involving pupil participation, poetry, drama and song. 

What an inspirational day for everyone reminding us all of the importance of a good story!

World Book Month Dress Up Day

Wow! What can we say! Today we celebrated World Book Month with a dress up day.  Each class focused on a particular author and were encouraged to make their own costume for a character from the author's stories. 

We were absolutely blown away with the effort that was put into the costumes from Nursery through to Primary 7. This was definitely the best year to date for homemade costumes.  We thank all the parents for their support in this wonderful event.  The children have shown fantastic interest in the stories by each author, what a fabulous idea to stimulate the imagination. 


Formula One Challenge

Well done to our P7 class who completed the Formula One Challenge.  All class members were involved in the challenge and superb team work was demonstrated throughout.  Six children were elected by other class members to go to The North Centre in Ballymena to present their Formula One model car to the organisers.  There were a large number of schools taking part in this challenge so we await the announcement of the overall winner by the end of the week.  Well done to everyone involved!
