Welcome to our 'Little school with a Big Heart'.
Kirkinriola is a family friendly school only one mile from the town of Ballymena. We are fortunate to have lots of outdoor space in our beautiful rural location. The small classes also mean that our children benefit from focused teaching specific to their individual needs.

Fun in the Snow
We all enjoyed having fun in the snow today. It was a new experience for Daniel Cooke as he had never played in snow before.
Remember on snowy days we need to bring 4 things to school if we want to enjoy being outside.
- Wellington boots
- A hat
- A warm coat

P5 -7 Christmas Visit to Prospect Nursing Home
On Wednesday 14th December 2016 we went to Prospect and sang a few of our Christmas Carol Service songs. They really liked it and moved to the beat when we sang Rockin around the Christmas Tree. Our secretary Mrs Hanna was our conductor. After we sang a few songs they took us to the dining room and we got orange juice and a selection box. It was very generous of them.

Winnie the Pooh Autumn Trail
On Friday 21st October we held a Winnie the Pooh Autumn Trail for the pupils in Kirkinriola Early Years(KEY) and our Primary 1 and Primary 2 pupils . The boys and girls and their parents enjoyed wandering around our school grounds and through our Hundred Acre Wood looking for Winnie the Pooh and his friends. New character Penguin was also spotted in the trees near Tigger and Roo. The trail ended with Christopher Robin showing the children into school where the boys and girls were able to enjoy a Winnie the Pooh themed snack and juice while colouring in Winnie the Pooh pictures. Meanwhile the adults enjoyed toasted crumpets , iced fruit loaf, tea and biscuits. Before going home the boys and girls placed a personalised leaf on our "Friendship Tree". Each child got a balloon to remind them of their visit to Hundred Acre Wood.

Spring Fayre 2016
This year's Kirkinriola Primary School and Early Year's Spring Fayre was held on Saturday 5th March. We were blessed by beautiful sunshine and a huge turnout of local community support. Our Kirkinriola family was certainly out in force and we are pleased that their hard work was rewarded with the highest fundraising total to date.
Many thanks to everyone who came along and supported us. Our children will benefit through your kindness and we hope you all had a fantastic day.

Time to Shine
Time to Shine sessions are now into their second term and the children continue to enjoy a variety of activities on Friday afternoons.
A massive thank you to our parents who continue to offer sewing and craft activities.
The smaller group sizes make the experience much more accessible for all the children and as you can see from the pictures they are all completely focused by these fun projects.
We are looking forward to next Friday already.
