Parents in Partnership

Parents play an integral part in Rowandale Integrated Primary School and have done since we opened in 2007.

Reading Partnership


At Rowandale we are committed to developing skills in all areas of the curriculum. Reading Partnership is one of our great success stories. Did you know that if you read with a child for ten to fifteen minutes a day, three times a week for ten weeks, you can improve a child's reading age by up to two years!

We are extremely lucky to have a team of volunteer Reading Partners who come in to read with children on a regular basis. Parents and Grandparents are familiar faces around the school as they spend precious time with children and build immeasurable confidence.

The Thursday Club


Rowandale has a team of willing, unsung volunteers who give their time freely to help out when needed. Our Thursday Club is a regular meet-up of parent volunteers who come in to sort, label and cover reading books that have been donated to school. It's a great way for parents to get together for a chat, a cuppa and, of course, get some books sorted!!

Below are some words about Rowandale from current parents
We have 2 children at Rowandale and we couldn't be happier! After relocating back to Northern Ireland from England, we wanted an educational setting that was diverse and culturally rich. From the moment we met Mrs Hughes, we knew we found the right school for our family. Our kids enjoy Rowandale immensely. They are greeted daily with a warm welcome from the Kiss and Go Volunteers. They enjoy a host of activities including Rugby, Guitar, Hip Hop and Singing. They have progressed immensely with in their academic achievements. They enjoy the choir, the school plays and the seasonal assemblies. Rowandale has won a place in our hearts and we couldn't be more grateful to the Teachers and staff there. Charlene, Mum to Freddie and Anna Rose
My child was finding it hard to start with but has come along loads with the extra help she has had. It was brilliant. My child can now read so well. The teachers and staff are all brilliant - lovely smiles on their faces.  Zoe, Mum to a child in Yr 3
We decided to move our two children, aged 5 and 7, to Rowandale Integrated Primary School in Moira mid-term. From the moment we contacted Rowandale to inquire about enrollment to their first day of school, the principal and staff have been receptive and supportive. Our children have been extremely content since their first visit to Rowandale. The school has a positive approach to learning and discipline, teaching important values such as consent and respect. Communication from the children's teachers and classroom assistants is excellent. The school has a wonderful community, and parents play a significant role in it. Our children are extremely settled and happy since the move; they are more confident and very content, and we know they are being nurtured and well cared for. We are truly thankful each and every day that we made the decision to move to Rowandale. Gerard & Bláthnaid, parents of Michael and Grace
