Sport in School 
 
As a school Newtownhamilton Primary is very conscious of the need for sports to be an integral part of the school curriculum. Whilst we are a relatively small school we endeavour to offer our pupils as many sporting opportunities as we can manage. Sport is becoming an important part of an individual's lifestyle and assists in helping children to grow up fit and healthy and to be able to cope better with the rigours of modern living. Sport also promotes healthy competition and provides opportunities for team work. The school endeavours to include all its pupils in sport and encourages everyone to join in at whatever level of skill they have. Our Sports programme is developing all the time but at present we offer our pupils the following - 
 
Soccer 
 
The school has long been involved in the promotion of soccer. Each year we host our own 5-A-Side Football Tournament in June and invite a number of local primary schools to take part. The emphasis is on participation although there is usually good healthy competition between the teams. Both boys and girls take part. Football coaching for pupils has been a part of our programme for the past few years with Extended Schools providing the funding to bring in qualified coache. It is planned in the near future to engage pupils in more regular competition by joining the Small Schools Primary League. A number of pupils also attend coaching sessions with the youth section of Tullyvallen Rangers FC and Markethill Swifts FC.

Sports Day 
 
The highlight of the athletics year is the school sports day. Preparing for this through PE time sports day is a mixture of fun races and more competitive events to suit all ages of pupils. 
Swimming 
 
Pupils in Years 5, 6 & 7 take part in the school's swimming programme. Pupils are taught to swim by trained instructors at the Orchard Leisure Centre Pool in Armagh. This gives our pupils an excellent chance of learning an important skill which will stay with them for the rest of their lives.
