Congratulations to all the children who participated in the Ballymena Festival. Standing up in front of an audience, particularly in a solo performance, requires great confidence and we have nothing but the highest praise for all who did so. The children enjoyed this experience and returning to school telling everyone how well they had done.  The school was awarded the Top Primary School Choir and Top Primary School in the Vocal Classes at the Festival Gala evening.  Matilda Hendron and Gavin Kerr also received special awards at the Gala evening.
