PTA Colour Run
What a day for a Colour Run! THANK YOU to our amazing PTA for putting on such a fun-filled afternoon for our boys and girls.
The music was pumping, the activities were brilliant and the colours were flying through the air! It was fantastic to see so many smiles and such an array of colour, a day of memories to be treasured for our pupils.
Sports Day at Meadow Bridge
Kissing the Shuttle - P7 Production
We are so proud of the entire Primary 7 year-group and their recent production of 'Kissing the Shuttle', part of the 'Pat and Plain' series commissioned by the Ulster-Scots Agency and written by Dan Gordon.
The boys and girls performed to an incredibly high standard on both nights and the crowds were wowed by the emersive experience and learning about life in the Linen Mills of Ulster from the 20th Century.
Big Spring Clean at Meadow Bridge
Last Thursday all the boys and girls were involved in our Big Spring Clean. Our school grounds are looking so clean and tidy now.
Thank you to our wonderful Eco Committee for their help in organising this event!
LCCC Community Fun Day
Meadow Bridge P.S were delighted to be a part of the Council’s Community Fun Day on Saturday 26th March in celebration of Royal Hillsborough. Held within the grounds of Downshire P.S and the Community Centre, School Councillors helped to run a stall where they played some games, gave out some promotional material and ran competitions with passers-by.
We must pay particular credit to the members of the School Council who were exemplary pupils in terms of their behaviour, communication with the public and teamwork on the stall. It was a very enjoyable day and the bright and beautiful weather certainly helped. We must also thank Miss Wortley and Miss McCrossan who helped compile and coordinate the activities on the day. A great day out for Meadow Bridge!

2022 Open Day Video
We are delighted to launch our new Open Day video for 2021/22 which features exciting footage showcasing our talented pupils and beautiful school grounds, as well as a welcome message from our new principal, Mr. David Ball.
Christmas Jumper Day
We had a wonderful ‘Christmas Jumper Day’ in Meadow Bridge on Wednesday 8th December. Thank you to all of the boys and girls for wearing their festive jumpers, t-shirts and accessories.
It was lovely for our children to begin the celebrations of the season and enjoy a fabulous Christmas Dinner on the same day.
The boys and girls in Meadow Bridge have loved participating in Anti-Bullying Week for 2021. The positive theme of ‘One Kind Word’ has been a tremendous message to consider in our school environment. We had a colourful start to the week by taking part in ‘Odd Socks Day’ on Monday. The range of colours and designs was fantastic – a reminder that we are to embrace all of our differences and respect what makes each individual in Meadow Bridge unique.
During the week we have had the opportunity to take part in different age-appropriate activities to consider the theme of ‘One Kind Word’ and think about how one kind word can provide a moment of hope. We also loved discussing with our children how ‘kindness fuels kindness’ and how our actions can fire a chain reaction that powers positivity. We hope to see the benefits of a week like this run throughout the rest of our school year and we would like to thank our entire school community for taking part.
If you would like access to further tools and resources on this theme, the Anti-Bullying Alliance has put together a ‘Parent and Carer Pack’ which can be downloaded here https:// anti-bullyingalliance.org.uk/anti-bullying-week/parents-and-carers
School Council Badge Presentation
On Friday 12th November we were delighted to welcome Cllr Stephen Martin, the Mayor of Lisburn & Castlereagh to our Assembly.
He was invited by Mr McCollum to present the badges to the twelve new members of the Meadow Bridge P.S 'School Council'. For more details, visit the School Council page on the website here.

PTA were delighted to be able to kick off the 2021-22 year with our annual Tractor and Vintage Car Run. We had 65 vehicles of all shapes and sizes registered for the ‘Run’ this year and despite a very wet afternoon the rain stayed away and we were able to enjoy a fun evening outside.
We would like to say a big thank you to everyone who attended the event, either as a participant or as a spectator, we really appreciate the support and it was lovely to see so many people enjoying themselves while helping to raise money for Meadow Bridge Primary School and also for the P.I.P.S Hope and Support charity.
