Passing of Former Principal

By Ballyclare High School on 2 March, 2022


It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of our former Principal, Mr Millar. Mr Millar was Principal from 1971-1990 and continued his keen interest in the school, both staff and pupils and faithfully attended our school concerts, carol services and sporting events.

Although he was a determined academic he was passionate about the extra-curricular opportunities offered to pupils and was key in bringing Opera to the stage of Ballyclare High School. He made no excuses for demanding high standards but was renowned for being fair and loyal to his pupils.

His skills extended to playing the organ for the local Church of Ireland and indeed he played at many former pupils’ weddings.

We wish to extend our sympathies to all those who knew him in the Ballyclare High family. Always held in high esteem his legacy lives on in the fabric of school and our community. Mr Millar’s funeral will be held in Christ Church Ballynure on 8th March at 12 noon.
