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!!

    Relationship & Sexuality Education:Destination Adolescence

    At last night's meeting of parents a small focus group met to discuss the BHSCT Relationship & Sexuality Education (RSE) booklet for P7 Leavers. They heard that because of reorganisation of hours and duties, school nurses were not in future coming to schools to give their P7 Talk. Instead, the "Destination Adolescence" resource has been created. Teachers are being asked to deliver the program to P7 children in their final term at Primary School. We would like to have your views on the three parts of Destination Adolescence and have created a short online survey which, we hope, will give you an opportunity to express your views. Please remember, that these elements are for P7 children in their final term and that each year parents will be asked whether or not their children are to take part. As a result of the survey, decisions will be made about what is to be included and what is not to be included. The school RSE Policy will then be updated and sent to parents for review. Governors will then formally adopt the policy at a future meeting. We would invite ALL parents to take part in the survey by clicking on the link below:

    Leavers' day has been planned for Wednesday 27th June. If you are aware of any Magherafelt HS, Rainey ES or Sperrin IC activities that may place any of our P7s in a difficult dilemma, please contact us as soon as possible.



Our P7 pupils took part in a 3 day computer coding course - HIVE HACKERS.  The course was run by Price Waterhouse Cooper, a very large accountancy firm.  They really enjoyed it and were presented with certificates and medals for completing the course.

P5-7 Village Clean Up was another great success.. lots of helpers and plenty of rubbish bags filled up



On Wednesday 18th April we had a visit from Maghera author of the Weatherbies stories, Yvonne Fleming.  Throughout the day the pupils heard about her weather based characters and stories.  She explained how she created her characters and how she has now published two of her stories as books. 

We really enjoyed her visit.
