The Education Minister visits St Colmcille's PS

Members of the Board of Governors had a very productive discussion with Mrs Michelle McIlveen, Education Minister, her officials, CCMS Representatives and local politicians about how to address the school's structural needs, traffic management issues and Irish Medium priorities.


We were delighted to have in attendance, our former pupil and MP; Miss Órfhlaith Begley with MLAs, Mr Declan McAleer and Mr Daniel McCrossan.

During her visit, Mrs McIlveen visited children in the Irish Medium Unit and Naíscoil. She praised the vibrant school, its commitment to outdoor education and was impressed by the musical talent in the school. She indicated that the Department of Education would work with CCMS, trustees and governors to address the school's long-term strategic priorities.
