'Opening Doors of Opportunity Together'



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

We had a fantastic Sports Day at Meadow Bridge Primary School.It was brilliant to have Sports Day back in its normal fashion and welcome back a fantastic crowd for all three events.

A big WELL DONE to all of our AMAZING pupils who ran so well and competed so brilliantly. We were so proud to see you giving your best and achieving so much.

Thank you to all of our parents, grandparents, friends and Busy Bees Playgroup who came to support our runners and racers.

Thank you also to our generous PTA who made sure every pupil got a refreshing bottle of water and yummy chocolate bar and to Eurospar NI and their sponsorship of our event, the younger boys and girls loved their medals!

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!

Red Nose Day in Meadow Bridge P.S
We had a fantastic day in school celebrating an early Red Nose Day as we're off school on Friday.
Each teacher was tasked by the School Council with taking a 'Red Nose Day Selfie' with their class. We hope you enjoy their results.
It was a fantastic day and we all enjoyed celebrating the theme of 'Funny is Power' while raising lots of money for a great cause.

PTA Quiz at Gowdys

Crazy Hair Day
What a day in Meadow Bridge! Our boys and girls, Teachers and Classroom Assistants and even Mr. Ball had some curly, crazy and colourful hairstyles on display.
It was a lovely way to finish this Half-Term and thank you for your generous donations which raises much-needed funds for our PTA.

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.

Please watch, share and enjoy our 'virtual' Open Day experience and we hope this provides a flavour for life in Meadow Bridge Primary School and what your child could expect when entering Primary 1 in 2022.

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.

Anti-Bullying Week
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://

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.

Harvest Foodbank Donations
We are very grateful for our parents and families at this special time of Harvest for the donations to support local foodbanks.

Everything will be distributed between 'GAP Ministries' and Lisburn Foodbank. Your support will make a big difference for many families in need. Thank you.

House Competition Winners

'Draw your own Teacher'

It was a delight to see these pupils from P.3-P.7 win our first House Competition of the year. Can you guess the teachers?
There was some extraordinary artwork on show and plenty of super entries from across the school.

Christmas Fair & Market


Our fabulous PTA have organised a special treat for the school at the cost of only £2 per child.
This will take place during school hours and payment can be made using 'School Money'.
Please note the date which is Friday 22nd October and this will also be a non-uniform day for the school. A lovely way to end this first Half-Term!



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.
