Hockey is offered to all girls in Primary 5, 6 and 7.  In Waringstown Primary School it is our aim that through teaching the skills of hockey, all girls will gain in ability, enjoyment and in self-confidence.

Hockey in the Primary School Section throughout Northern Ireland is played in 6 a-side teams. Each year Waringstown Primary School produce an A and a B team.  These two teams enjoy taking part in friendly games against local primary schools, the school team also annually participates in the Mid Ulster League and enjoys notable success within this. A prestigious tournament is held annually in Northern Ireland to find the most successful Hockey team.  This is a very popular and challenging competition in which Waringstown Primary School had been crowned as Champions in the Year 2001, 2008 and in 2009.

We prepare our hockey girls from Primary 5 with skill, ability and a good knowledge of hockey so as they are confident to carry this on when they enter into their post primary education.


Hockey team watch past pupils play international hockey

The girls hockey team had a wonderful afternoon watching the Irish Ladies hockey team beat Singapore 11-0, at Banbridge Hockey Club.
 
They were thrilled to be watching a past pupil, Bethany Barr, play on the team and to get a photograph with her.
 
Some of the girls had another opportunity to get a photograph with another past pupil, Irish hockey player ,Matthew Bell.
 
It was a fantastic day.
 
 

Hockey Celebrations

All the hockey girls in P5, P6 and P7 have shown great commitment this year and it has paid off as the team won the Lurgan College Aspiring Hockey trophy and played superbly in all other matches. For our last day of hockey, the girls had a party to celebrate the success of all the hockey girls and the progress they have made over the year.  They enjoyed some party food, singing and dancing.  A great afternoon was had by all!  At the end Mrs McElhinney and Mrs Hall presented the team with a lovely photo and frame so the girls will always have something special to remember their time playing for Waringstown Primary School.

The teachers would like to say a BIG thank you to all the girls who have attended hockey practice this year and we want to wish the P7 girls every success as they move on to their new school!
