Prize Day at St Brigid’s Primary School in Ballymoney was also an opportunity to reflect with the parents and pupils on the importance of religion in the life of the school.
During the year the children have grown spiritually under the guidance of their teachers and Fr O’Brien. In particular, it was a special year for those children who received one of their Sacraments. Mrs McNally thanked all of the staff in St. Brigid’s, for their work, dedication and commitment to the children in the school and extended her appreciation to the Literacy Support Service Teacher, the Educational Psychologist, the Speech & Language Therapist and the Social Workers who have supported pupils, families and staff to help children in every aspect of their development.
On behalf of the whole school community, Mrs McNally also thanked the Board of Governors for their commitment and time, which they give on a voluntary basis, to assist in the management of the school. As chairperson of the PTA, Mrs McNally, highlighted the significant work of the PTA, who again, give up their time to raise funds and develop initiatives to support the learning and teaching in St. Brigid’s.
Mrs McNally reflected, that the school year of 2015 – 2016, could not pass without acknowledging and thanking Mr Malachy Conlon for his work and his vision for St. Brigid’s Primary School from 2007 to 2016.
Mrs McNally concluded by thanking the parents, families, staff and children for their contribution to the school saying: “St. Brigid’s has enjoyed a successful year and as a school community we look forward to building on these successes to develop our pupils personally, emotionally, spiritually, socially and physically, and in so doing, promote further academic achievement.”
