OFFICIAL OPENING OF NEW UNITS

OFFICIAL OPENING OF NEW UNITS

On Thursday 28th April Killard House School hosted our first social event since the pandemic. This was a double celebration in recognition of our new additional accommodation as well as saying a belated farewell to retired staff.  We were delighted to have several special guests into school including the Minister for Education, Minister Michelle McIlveen and our one and only previous Principal, Mr Millar MBE. Other retired staff also welcomed back included Mrs Vance, Mrs Anderson , Mrs Adair and Mrs Dunbar. We also had the Board of Governors, Charity Trustees, EA Officers , Mayor Brooks, Elim church and local community representatives. This was an opportunity to officially open our 2 new units for Key Stage 5 “The Hive” and Key Stage 4 “ The Hutch” which was recognised by the cutting of the ribbons carried out by Minister McIlveen and Mr Millar MBE. This occasion was made all the more special by our Year 13 and 14 pupils hosting a fabulous lunch event for all our guests. It was an emotional day for many of the guests as it had been so long since they had been in Killard but they could not have been more impressed with the welcome from pupils and staff. Minister McIlveen acknowledged the challenges within Special Education and recognised the commitment from staff particularly over the last 2 years.  Mr Millar MBE was so delighted to be back with his Killard House family and wished Killard House School continued growth and success in supporting our amazing pupils. Together We Can!!!
