Jenny Taylor and Tiffany Golligher were interviewed for the radio and Education Minister, Peter Weir demanded to be photographed with our stars (Artistic licence applied). Many thanks to Ms Pender, Mrs McMorris and Miss Devine for their continued dedication to our pupils. #WEARELISNEAL
A HUGE well done goes to Kaitlyn and Rachael who volunteered to help out at the Eglinton Primary School PTA Christmas Fair. The girls were fantastic with the primary pupils, painting their nails and putting up hair. The smiles on the faces of the children were just fantastic. Mrs Blair was so impressed with the girls and spoke very highly of them and what they were doing for the community. At #TEAMLISNEAL we are really proud of these two girls.
