Portstewart Primary School and Nursery Unit has a new Principal at the helm. Mrs Kathryn Taylor took up the post at the start of November.
Mrs Taylor was formerly the Vice Principal at Moneymore Primary School and Nursery Unit. Before that Mrs Taylor was a teacher at Elmgrove Primary School in Belfast and Straidbilly Primary School near Ballymoney.
Having now taken over the leadership of the school, Mrs Taylor said she is delighted and honoured to be working with such wonderful children, supportive parents and dedicated staff.
“It is a real privilege for me to lead the school. I have received a very warm welcome from the whole school community”.
“I look forward to building on strong foundations which have been laid over many generations and continuing to develop the child centred ethos, high quality teaching and learning and excellent standard of pastoral care”.
“We are a welcoming and friendly school with pupils who are motivated, enthusiastic and keen to learn. We recognise that each child is an individual and want them to experience success and to achieve as high a standard as possible.”
“We are a forward thinking school who seek to equip our pupils with the skills needed for lifelong learning. We are fully committed to the use of Digital Learning and Technology. We have our own school radio station where pupils can be broadcast live or in a prerecorded form throughout every classroom in the school. Pupils also have the opportunity to participate in film making using our Green Screen facilities. We also have an extensive range of afterschool clubs and activities.”
“We are very proud of our school and invite you to join us at our Open Morning or Open Night to seek around our school and meet our pupils, staff and Governors.”
