THE SCHOOL DAY
OUR SCHOOL GROUNDS
We take great pride in our grounds and make a real effort to ensure that they look well during all four seasons of the year.
We have invested money to make our outdoor areas great for learning and use them regularly. Our P1-3 playground has upgraded in Autumn 2020 and includes lots of new activities to learn through play.
We have playground markings which can be used for lunchtime games but also by teachers for helping to teach maths and other subject areas.
Our commitment to conservation is evident in our willow dome, pond with frogs and goldfish, a Conservation Garden with herbs and seating, eating apple and plum trees, vegetable plots, pots at the front door and shrubs and plants throught the site.
We have a gardener who comes in weekly and works hard to keep Earlview looking spectacular.
We like to get involved in the community as often as possible. We are linked with Glengormley High School and Ballyhenry Primary School through the Extended Schools Programme.
We meet up several times a year with Hillcroft and share school activities.
Over the recent years we have been involved with Forest Schools, The Housing Executive, Newtownabbey Borough Council and the Woodland Trust to plant many trees, bulbs and shrubs in the area.
We have completed many litter picks in the area around the school and have also planted bulbs and shrubs for Bryans House, our neighbouring sheltered accomodation.
