Leaf Background: Dunclug Primary School is a firm believer in the value of educating our children in the great outdoors. It brings so many benefits to the children, the school and the local community.

We were fortunate to secure a Forest School Award in 2018/19 from Mid and East Antrim Borough Council and undertook our training at The People's Park, Ballymena.

Our desire is for all children to fulfil their potential and grow into happy, confident and responsible young people.

During your child s time at school, we would encourage your personal co-operation and interest. We feel it is important that parents are involved in the education of their children and we hope that the contact between the school and home would enhance your child s primary school experience.

The Aim of our School is to further develop every pupil s strengths, qualities and performance of work .

I Forest School setting: We use The People's Park in the centre of Ballymena for our Forest School activities. The Park is ideal and only a short walk from the school. The Park has many different habitats to explore - lake, parkland, mature trees and hedgerows.
