P7 Pupils – Class of 2021

It is with great sadness that we say goodbye to our wonderful P7 pupils. We wish them every success, joy and happiness as they begin a new chapter in their lives. We have no doubt they will use all their qualities and values to help them embrace all the challenges and opportunities ahead.


New Principal Appointment

As you may already be aware, I will be leaving my position as Principal of Ballylifford PS at the end of the school year to begin my new role as Principal at Derrychrin PS. The Board of Governors of Ballylifford Primary School & CCMS are seeking to appoint a Principal, who can clearly demonstrate, at both application and interview stage, a clear vision for the school that will promote and develop the philosophy of Catholic education and which facilitates the creation of an atmosphere where all are valued and encouraged. Closing date for applications is the 7th July at 12 noon. It is hoped an appointment will be made by the week commencing 19th July.

On behalf of the Board of Governors and staff of Ballylifford Primary School, I would like to thank you for your continued support and co-operation during the past year and I wish you all a very restful, enjoyable and safe summer break. We look forward to seeing everyone return on 31st August, refreshed and energised for the new school year.  


Yours sincerely

Mr Ciaran McElroy
