Outdoor classroom opened by Education Minister at Doagh PS
Education Minister Michelle McIlveen visited Doagh Primary yesterday (Wednesday) to officially open a new outdoor classroom at the Main Street school.
The Minister was given a tour of the school, had a question and answer session with pupils and officially opened a new outdoor classroom called ‘Ellen’s Den’.
The facility is named in memory of Ellen Tang who recently passed away and whose daughter works in the school.
Speaking to the Times, Principal Lisa Brown said: “We were delighted to welcome the Minister of Education, Michelle McIlveen, to open our new outdoor classroom.
“This will be a very valuable learning space within Doagh Primary School. Our wonderful PTA worked tirelessly to raise the funds for this excellent resource.
“The school is very much the hub of Doagh village and we look forward to sharing this fantastic space with the local community. The children, staff and Governors wish to sincerely thank the Minister for taking the time to visit our thriving village school.”
