Sinn Féin Education spokesperson, Karen Mullan MLA has congratulated a number of schools who have been recognised for their exceptional pastoral care at the Derrytrasna Pastoral Care award ceremony hosted by the Department of Education and the Public Health Agency.
The schools who received this year's award are: Stanhope Street Nursery School Belfast, St Mary’s Primary School Killyleagh, St Paul’s Primary School Enniskillen, Belfast Boys Model School and Tor Bank Special School.
Karen Mullan said:
“Growing up can be challenging for young people, the role of our schools and teachers in providing help, support and guidance to the challenges of life is an integral part of the school experience.
“It is important that we acknowledge and celebrate the fantastic work done by those schools that go the extra mile for our children and provide a level of care and support that is over and above what is expected of them.
“I would like to congratulate all the schools, particularly the Principals, teachers and staff who have received this year’s Derrytrasna Award, they have demonstrated their commitment to exceptional pastoral care and providing support to their pupils’ individual needs.”
