Mrs. Scullion was awarded Highly Commended in the Principal section.
Anne Mc Closkey was awarded a special recognition for 30 years service and being the heart of our school.
What an amazing experience we shared at the Families First Awards in Belfast last night.
It was an honour to be nominated and have the opportunity to represent our school and wider community but so special to have won and accept the 'WOW and Outstanding Pastoral Care award on behalf of all staff, pupils and parents, the support received was overwhelming. The comments submitted demonstrate beyond a shadow of a doubt that the strength of our school lies in its pastoral care system,
wellbeing programmes, mental health initiatives and promoting personal excellence for all our students,
we are so grateful for the families and children that we serve.
Thank you to everyone who supported our nomination and submitted comments to the judges, it was so lovely to
hear some of them read out and shared.
It was such a pleasure to watch Anne Mc Closkey be recognised for her 30 year service, her contribution to our school and her positive impact on our young people through her role as our Librarian. The comments of support over recent weeks have meant a great deal to her and the recognition she received last night was a fitting confirmation of what we all know about her, congratulations Anne.
