Ballymoney High School has formed a new Friends group aimed at supporting and promoting all aspects of school life.

And, to kick start this new initiative, the Friends of Ballymoney High School have organised a fundraising table quiz for the Garryduff Road school.

The ‘Fun for All Table Quiz’ is being held in the School Assembly Hall tomorrow (Wednesday) 4th March at 7.30pm.

The cost is £2.50 per adult, £1.50 per child.

Teams up to six and prizes for first, second and third. Quiz Master will be Gerry McAleese and Compere will be Mr Davidson.

A spokesperson for the Friends said: “We are a group of people who are interested in supporting and promoting

all aspects of school life at Ballymoney High School.

“We are very keen to give something back to the school and help the staff to provide the best possible learning experiences for pupils. All of us have links with the school.

“We are parents, past pupils, staff and members of the local community who have got together to begin this group.

“The purpose of the group is to promote the vision and aims of Ballymoney High School, to support the school in providing excellent provision and learning experiences for pupils and to build relationships among all people involved in the school and the wider community.

“How do we hope to fulfil these aims? By raising funds to help the school provide resources and extras for our pupils, by running social events for parents, children and members of the wider community, by establishing and developing further links between the school and the local community.

“We also aim to have strong links with the School Council in all the work we do.”

The newly formed Friends group is looking for more members.

The spokesperson continued: “If you are like minded people who want to support the school and are interested in having some fun and chat along the way, why not contact the Friends of Ballymoney High School Secretary, Mrs Caroline Wade on the school number 028 27662361 or keep an eye out for the various events we will be organising and come along and support us.

“We will be delighted to have you on board.” More information www.ballymoneyhigh.ballymoney.ni.sch.uk
