Education Minister Paul Givan visits Saintfield High School

Saintfield High School was delighted to welcome Minister of Education, Mr Paul Givan, on Wednesday 24th April.

Mr Givan enjoyed a tour of the school’s buildings, before experiencing (and indeed, participating in!) a series of practical lessons, and listening to an impassioned presentation from the school’s Senior Prefect Team. During their Technology and Design lesson, a group of Year 10 pupils presented Minister Givan with a wooden plaque, which they had crafted for him, in honour of his visit to Saintfield High School.

Mr Givan was very pleased to learn that as a result of the school’s continued post-primary demand for places at Year 8 (for over 25 years), they have been granted a significant Temporary Variation to enrolment for 2024-2025 for the third consecutive year of an additional Form Class of pupils.

Sarah-Lucy Hynds, Principal, commented that, ‘we are simply thrilled that we have been granted, yet again, an increase to enrolment to better meet the needs of our community – we expressed to Minister Givan the positive impact that this continues to have on our pupils and their families. The Saintfield High School community continues to look forward to a very bright future’.
