Dear Parents and Guardians,

This is my last Principal's message as a full member of our school community. I wish our Primary 7 leavers well as they move forward to the next stage of their education.

Our school motto is School, Community, Family.

I have been proud to serve Foley School, the surrounding Community of Ballymacnab and the Family that is the very core of our school i.e the children, teachers and ancillary staff for 20 years now.

In Foley Primary School I have been blessed to be part of a very special team who’s one aim has been to support and develop the children to their fullest potential. I have been lucky to be part of a very special and unique community where all the children, parents, teachers, ancillary and support staff work together to support each other. For that support over the last 20 years I would like to say, from the bottom of my heart, Thankyou.

Foley is a special place and I will miss it primarily because of the children in it but also because of the staff and the way they as a community support each other. It has been a pleasure and honour for myself as Principal to serve this community for the last 20 years. I have been privileged to have had in my classroom many, many fine young people.

On behalf of myself and my family I would like to thank all the staff of the school and the wider community who arranged Monday nights magnificent festivities. We have been overwhelmed by your generosity and kindness. Thanks to all those who have called in to offer their good wishes and to all who have sent cards and presents.

I would also like to thank the Board of Governors both past and present for all their support, work and enterprise on behalf of the school and I wish them well in their endeavours to appoint my successor. May the Holy Spirit guide and enlighten them.

In conclusion I would like to personally thank the staff of the school. They are the cornerstones of the ‘Family and Community’ atmosphere which runs through everything we have done together every day since I began. As I said to you all at the 'End of Year Mass' “Look around you. You as a staff touched so many people's lives, and each one of us, including myself, is a better person because of you.”

For this I thank you from the bottom of my heart and good luck in the future.

Thank you for taking the time to visit our website and we hope that you are able to learn more about the life of our school community through your visit. I hope, whether you are already part of our school community or that you may be considering our school for your child, that you find our school site useful, informative and interesting. If you would like to come and visit our school please feel free to contact the school on 02837531564 to arrange a visit and to meet the staff between 9.00am and 12.15pm.

Our school continues to be a friendly school, with high expectations for all of our children. We are committed to our Catholic ethos and the traditional values of hard work, respect for others, good manners and self-discipline These are essential attributes that we promote at all times within our school.

I thank you for your support.

Martin Kelly
