Dear Parents


The aim of this website is to both keep you up-to-date and to give you a greater insight into the ethos and day-to-day running of BallymacashPrimary School, Nursery Unit and Playgroup.


In my twelfth year in the school, five as Vice-Principal and seven as Principal, I am delighted to have the opportunity to continue the work of my colleague and predecessor Mr Gilmore.  Our school is ‘a place where we develop, achieve and enjoy’ and we hope that navigating this site you will become more aware of what we as a school are trying to achieve and realise that many people, including you, have an important part to play in the educational, social, physical and emotional growth of your child.


My staff and I are endeavouring to provide a safe, friendly environment in which your child can develop the skills which will allow him or her to grow into an independent, responsible adult, and with your co-operation I feel we can successfully achieve this.


As a father of three young children (all of whom attended Ballymacash) I am aware of the importance of choosing the right school, knowing your children are having the best opportunity to succeed and that they are happy.  At Ballymacash we try to maximize the links between home and school for the benefit of our pupils.  Therefore should you have any concerns or questions, we will always be available to discuss any aspects of your child's development,

Yours sincerely  


Principal: Mr S C Gray
