Ballymena Primary School

Ballymena Primary School

Believe, Persevere, Succeed



Middleton Community

The revised Northern Ireland Curriculum requires schools to, "develop the young person as a contributor to the economy and environment." This includes an understanding of employability and economic awareness.


In Ballymena Primary, following a study tour to Florida into the 'microsociety' concept, we set up our own Middleton Community. The Middleton name derives from the meaning of Ballymena - The Middle Town. A logo for the Middleton community was designed based on ideas from the pupils. Each year all P3 to P7 classes run a mini enterprise, the products of which are sold on the Middleton market day.


In addition, children may apply for various jobs in the Middleton community. These include:-


  • Working in the TV Studio
  • Dinner helper
  • Librarian
  • Playground buddy
  • Member of the Eco-team
