An update from the Principal / Nóta nua ón Phríomhoide

Tá cúpla scéala againn daoibh - tá dóchas againn i ndiaidh dúinn bualadh leis an Roinn Oideachais go gcuirfear le foirgnimh na scoile roimh thús na scoilbhliana seo chugainn agus fógraíodh torthaí na cigireachta a bhí againn i mí Dheireadh Fómhair. 

We have some good news this half term. Following our meeting and continued engagement with DENI we are hopeful that we shall have at least some new building(s) in place for the next school year. The Department of Education agreed that our current accommodation is too small to meet our growing numbers. We await another visit from the Education Authority's Architects to examine our site regarding the placement of a new classroom(s) and toilets. It has been indicated that these should be in place for the next school year.

In addition, the results of our recent school inspection have also been published on the Education & Training Inspectorate's website. Due to industrial action being taken by the 4 main teaching unions in Northern Ireland the inspectors were not able to fully assess the school as they did not inspect classroom teaching. However, their feedback is quite positive overall and they praised our pupils and the warm atmosphere they felt in the school. Please read the full report on (search Bunscoil Bheanna Boirche).
