A message from Mrs. Magowan (Principal)
At Ballinderry Primary and Nursery Unit we aim to provide a happy, caring atmosphere where children feel secure and are valued members of our school community.
We are concerned with the all round development of each individual child and provide a stimulating environment with dedicated friendly staff.
Our curriculum and classrooms are organised in such a way that children are well motivated and enjoy being at school.
We aim to equip each child with the skills and knowledge required for them to reach their full potential in today’s society.
We view parents as partners in the educational process and welcome your support in all aspects of school life.
"With our hearts we love and respect.
With our minds we learn and reflect."
The above mission statement is being delivered through the teaching of United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child (UNCRC).
