Three Ampertaine girls: Erin, Gabriella and Bethany played in today's final.

PTA in Action!!  (Oh Deere!)

Well done to the Three Dads: their hard work on Saturday morning means that all of our roofs, gutters and spoutings are in great working order.
Work has now been planned to square up the Ampertaine Villa in our play area to make it ready for the longer days and drier weather. Thanks, everyone!

Memorable Learning

 Welcome to the Ampertaine Primary School website. Whoever you are, we hope that you will enjoy your visit and find our pages interesting and useful.

Our small rural school has one hundred and twenty six 5-11 year-old girls and boys whose experiences are designed by 5 teachers, 3 classroom assistants and 2 administrative staff.

We welcome everyone to our school and do all in our power to ensure that children's time with us is safe, enjoyable and fruitful.

Parents, children, residents and business folk rely on us to provide the future drivers of our community... hopefully, your visit will give you some idea of how the  ambition, confidence, reliability, integrity and spirit of our youngsters are nurtured and guided.

YUUUMMMY!!  Thank you to Louise, Jackie and Jill who cooked our potatoes for us. They were delicious!!

    A Welcome Visit!

    Carol has asked us to send her thanks for the lovely cards and the "Red Cross parcel" she received in hospital. When we visited her tonight she was very moved by the little video messages made by some of the children in school today. The videos nearly made up for not seeing BG and Caleb as a result of very strict infection control measures currently in place in Causeway. We wish Carol well and hope to see her bright eyed and bushy tailed at work soon after Easter!
