Ballymana NS Blab

Dear Parents/ Guardians,

We extend a warm welcome to you and your child to Ballymana NS. It is our aim that your child will be extremely happy in our school and will achieve his/her full potential by being happy, sociable and respectful in our school’s pleasant and stimulating learning environment. There is a strong sense of community and a high level of co-operation between staff, pupils, parents and visitors.

Our school caters for all classes from Junior Infants up to Sixth Class, for boys and girls. Ballymana NS has a Catholic Ethos as outlined in the Catholic School’s Schedule displayed in the school corridor. A spirit of prayer promotes an atmosphere of kindness, appreciation and forgiveness.

My vision for our school is one where the children of the community achieve, feel safe and are happy. Our school is a place where we celebrate student achievement and ensure that parents and visitors who enter the school know how well our students achieve. Ballymana NS firmly believes in the philosophy that education equals opportunity. In our school we are extremely fortunate to have a wonderfully skilled staff that are constantly developing and supporting the children to maximise their potential. It is absolutely vital that the people of this community have a vibrant primary school that not only provides a top class education but also helps to support, enhance and emphasise everything that is good about Ballymana. With our outstanding facilities, wonderful resources and deeply committed staff, Ballymana NS  is the school that can positively shape all of your children’s futures.”
