BALLYHENRY Primary School Principal, Paula Matthews will bid a fond farewell to the school at the end of the month to take up a new position at Fairview Primary School.

The Glengormley woman has been with the school for the past two years and was previously a teaching Principal at Duneane Primary School in Toomebridge.

“I will miss Ballyhenry, no doubt there will be tears on my final day,” said Mrs Matthews. “It has been a very happy time for me and a very rewarding experience.

“Duneane was a small school with just two classes and 37 children and it was a challenge to make the step up to Ballyhenry as Principal and leave behind the teaching - but I found it a very smooth transition.

“There is an incredible team here at Ballyhenry and with that type of foundation and support you can really move forward and achieve success.”
