3D Background: Ballyclare Primary School was lucky enough to be successful in winning the Forest School Awards for Antrim and Newtownabbey in 2016/17. We had always been interested in developing more outdoor education and this came at the perfect time.

Finished Forest School setting: Ballyclare Primary School is only a very short walk from Sixmilewater Conservation Area. It is a fantastic local resource with park land, wilder forested areas and of course the Sixmilewater River running through it. It is a great area for Forest School sessions.
