Mill Strand Parents’ Council is sending an open invite to the members of the Portrush community to a meeting at Portrush Town Hall on Thursday 2nd June at 7.30pm to share ideas about the future relocation of the school.
The latest announcements from the DENI Major Capital Works Programme allows Mill Strand to embark on a 5 year journey to a new school in Portrush.
Exciting times lie ahead with a state of the art integrated school campus being planned. It is aimed that the potential £7m investment will bring the school to the heart of the town as part of the regeneration of Portrush.
Mill Strand parent, Gemma Reid, will give a short presentation on the Mill Strand vision at 7.30pm, followed by the opportunity for the community to discuss and contribute to the school’s ideas This is an informal event where participation is encouraged through sharing ideas on the general themes relating to how a new school for Mill Strand could benefit the wider Portrush community.
Gemma said of the event “As a parent at the school, and a supporter of integrated education, I obviously would like to see the Mill Strand grow. But I also believe that the school’s plans for the future have something to offer the entire community.
This could be a fantastic opportunity for all the local schools to work more closely together. And there would be opportunities for other local community groups to use the new facilities too. A community facility like this could help make Portrush a more attractive place to live, work and visit.”
