While the boys and girls (and staff) were enjoying their summer break there was still a lot of activity in and around the school building as volunteers from our PTA and the Anahilt and Magheraconluce Community Association set about completing some very useful projects.
A significant amount of the outside of our Foundation building received a fresh coat of paint as well as some re-decorating in the entrance area (painting and carpeting). Colourful flowers have also been placed at the school gates. A lovely welcome back to everyone at the start of a new term.
Mrs Davidson has used some of our 'Well-Being' funding alongside extra funding from our PTA to completely re-purpose one of our rooms into a dedicated 'Sensory Space'. This facility will be of great benefit to our pupils and will be put to good use throughout the school year.
A spectacular 'Harry Ferguson' mural has been funded by Lisburn and Castlereagh Council through their centenary funding, secured by the PTA. The project is based around celebrating the achievements of a local person who stands out in our history - in our case - Harry Ferguson, creating a community art piece in their honour to mark NI100. Local artist Ruth Agnew, was commissioned to do the work and has done an excellent job. A beautiful mural to be enjoyed for years to come.
