We are keen to hear and share news of our alumni. We produce three newsletters a year, featuring School news and updates and also highlights from the Old Boys’ and Old Girls’ Associations. Your contribution, feedback and suggestions are always welcome; if you have a story or piece of news that you think others would be interested in, please email the Development Office and send any relevant photos to firstname.lastname@example.org
We would like to congratulate former pupil, Miss Amanda McCabe, FRCS (paeds), on her recent appointment to the Council of the Royal College of Surgeons, Edinburgh. Amanda left Belfast Royal Academy in 1987 to study Medicine at Nottingham University and has been a consultant paediatric surgeon for 13 years, based at Ninewells Hospital Dundee and the Royal Hospital for Children and Young Adults in Edinburgh.
In November 2020 Stephen Bailie, Principal of Parkhall Primary School, Antrim, was awarded the British Empire Medal in the Queen’s Birthday Honours List for services to education and the community during the Covid pandemic. Stephen led the creation of a local hub which supported 11 schools within the Antrim and Randalstown area and, in so doing, provided a lifeline in supporting families with key workers.
If you would like to host a reunion for your class, please get in touch with the Alumni Office who can provide guidance and support when setting up the event.
