Dundonald Primary School

Breakfast and After School 

We offer "wrap-around" care for our pupils through our own Early Birds Breakfast Club and through external provider Happy Faces Out of School Care for after school. These facilities provide a friendly, caring environment for the children to play and meet friends before and after school. Early Birds is run onsite and Happy Faces is run in the community hall (access from Dundonald Recreation Ground).
