We would encourage all parents to watch this very short video, which has been given to all schools from the PSNI (video made with Parenting NI), particularly as we enter another holiday period.

Commencing last Friday’s Football Festival held at Drumgor, our boys- wearing Craigavon City blue- joined the other teams in a minute’s applause, in memory of our late friend, coach and mentor, John Cochrane.
Dates and times remain the same, but proceeds will now be split between two charities to include Macmillan Cancer Support in memory of John Cochrane RIP.
Thank you for supporting our Easter raffle. We raised over £400 👏🏻🐣 Here are the lucky winners, pictured with their fantastic prizes!
Wishing you all a very Happy Easter. Enjoy the break 🐰🍫
Thank you to Colin Tinsley and the team from Hope For Youth Ministries for providing an Easter Story Activity book to each pupil in our school for free.
This is a very generous gesture and we hope everyone will enjoy their books over the Easter break. 🐣
We were delighted to present Mrs Chambers with a cheque for £280 for Goal Line Youth Trust in Portadown. 😊
To celebrate Children’s Mental Health week in February we dressed in our most colourful outfits to brighten up the corridors of Drumgor.
Everyone had a great day for a worthy cause. ❤️💙💜💛💚🧡
Drumgor Primary School would like to offer our sincere condolences to the family of John Cochrane.

John was a great support, mentor and coach to our pupils past and present, and a good friend to our school.

Our thoughts and prayers are with the entire Cochrane family and everyone connected with Craigavon City Football Club.

Northern Ireland 5 a-side finals

On Tuesday, our 5 a-side football team entered the NI finals, held at South Lakes Leisure Centre.

3 wins, 2 draws and 1 loss, made for an excellent performance from the boys in red and green.

They have done the school proud, representing us at this level and playing in a good spirit.

Well done to Maralin Primary, who won the competition.

We might take this opportunity to also thank all those P7s who have played for any of our school teams, and to encourage them to continue their sporting careers in secondary school.

How wonderful to see the progress of our garden!

Our lettuce is now ready to eat and we need good homes! If any family would like to make a small donation, their child can pick and bring home one of the lettuces from our garden. The money will go towards purchasing new seeds and plants for the vegetable garden.

As we approach the Coronation, classes have been busy with some themed activities. For example, P1/2 have been considering, “If I were the King,” and they got appropriately attired for the occasion!

Tullygally Cup

Today our girls’ football team took part in the first ever Tullygally Cup.

They came second in their group with one win, one defeat and three draws.

They then drew their third place playoff with Carrick, and so shared the bronze place.

£104 was also raised at the tuck shop for charity Bluebell Trust, which works closely with all of the involved schools.

This morning, our School and Eco Council really enjoyed meeting the Lord Mayor and finding out about our local council.


Drumgor Win Spring Festival Plate.

We are delighted for our football team who, having come 3rd in their group (putting them into the second-tier of the competition for the Plate), went on to win their three knockout matches (1-0, 1-0 and 4-0 in the final!); taking ‘home’ the Plate. Great perseverance and character from the whole team throughout. A super day, despite the rain. Well done!

This morning we really enjoyed getting back into the school garden to plant our summer vegetables.


We have registered for this!

Speech Festival Success

Following our P6 boy’s mighty achievement last Friday, further silverware was gained from three P7 girls at the Portadown Speech Festival on Monday. Two of them came joint second and another got a certificate of commendation.

A tremendous feat from them all, and we hope to enter into more categories next year.


Happy World Book Day from P1/2. We hope everyone had a great day.


This morning, this P6 boy performed in his first Portadown Speech Festival, and came back with a beautiful Bronze Medal (third place)!

A brilliant job reciting and performing ‘Dear Mum’ by Brian Patten. 👏
