Councillors meet south Armagh school principals

Sinn Féin representatives Conor Murphy, Megan Fearon and Terry Hearty recently met with the Principals of St Brigid’s Primary School in Glassdrummand and St Joseph’s Secondary School in Crossmaglen.

Both meetings took place on Thursday 12th June and provided an opportunity for Principals and senior staff in the schools to outline their future plans and allowed the Sinn Féin team to offer their assistance.

Speaking after these engagements Assembly Member Megan Fearon outlined the different challenegs and issues facing both schools saying,

“St Brigid’s Glassdrummand is a perfect example of a thriving, rural school.  There continues to be a high demand for enrolment and it was clear from speaking with the Principal, Ms Keating, that the current premises is not big enough to accommodate the growing pupil numbers.

“Conor, Terry and I were able to offer practical advice on the next steps needed to extend the school building and address this issue.”

Speaking in relation to the meeting with St Joseph’s Secondary School Ms Fearon said,

“This was the latest engagement with St Joseph’s Principal Mr Jones in the ongoing campaign for a new premises for St Joseph’s.  Progress is being made on this and there are a number of next steps which the school can now undertake.

“Sinn Féin fully supports the new building for St Joseph’s and we will offer any help we can to move this project on.”
