A Welcome to Notre Dame RC Girls’ School
by Sister Anne Marie Niblock, Head Teacher
In choosing a secondary school for your daughter, we know that you will be looking for one where she will be happy, where she will be learning in a community with high expectations and where she will receive the best education possible.
Year 7 Tea Party
On Thursday 16th November, year 7 held a tea party for the teachers of their primary schools. The girls were so excited to see their primary teachers again and to show them how well they are progressing. Cakes were devoured with aplomb! It was exceptionally busy and we thank all the primary teachers for attending. Also a big thank you to Ms. Lafferty for organising.
