Mr McCullough’s Duties

Due to ongoing difficulties with my recovery from a sustained period of ill health, it has proved necessary for me to further reduce my days to 3 per week. I will be in school each Monday, Tuesday and Thursday and Mrs Smyth will be Acting Principal each Wednesday and Friday as agreed as a further action by Governors. In order to maintain consistency, Mrs McCluskey will continue to teach the P5/6 class each Monday and Friday until the end of this school year. The dates for P6 Grafters Club will continue as previously informed. I would like to thank parents for their continued understanding during my recovery and their support for Mrs Smyth in her role as Acting Principal 2 days per week.
