Ballyclare High’s Annual Distribution of Prizes took place last night, a celebration of success where pupils, parents and staff come together to recognise academic and extra-curricular achievements. We welcomed former pupil Frances McCandless the first ever Chief Executive of the Charity Commission for NI. Having studied at Oxford, Trinity and Warwick University where she lectured, Frances McCandless has a realm of academic experience. She shared fond and funny memories of our school and staff and urged pupils to seize all opportunities. It was a wonderful night of celebration and was completed by our fantastic Chamber Choir and their performance of ‘Irish Blessing.’ by Philip Stopford.
