GALLERY: North Coast College open night
The principal of North Coast Integrated College welcomed hundreds of children and parents to the school open night recently.
Mrs Angela PAssmore said: “We are a successful integrated school where pupils come first and achieve success and we will continue to meet the increasing demand for integrated education in this area.”
“We will grasp the opportunity that has been presented by the area base planning, having been approved to proceed to the planning phase of our new build, under the Fresh Start Agreement. Exciting times lie ahead.”
Mrs Passmore highlighted the unique and special position the College holds in the local community.
“Integrated is the important word in our name because we are the only integrated post primary school in the Coleraine area. Integrated means that we believe that boys and girls from all religious backgrounds and all abilities should be educated together.
“Integration is not just accepting others beliefs and traditions but here, at North Coast Integrated College, we encourage pupils to understand and respect these. We provide a safe environment which encourages all pupils to reach not only their academic potential but to grow in mind and spirit to be the best person that they can be. North Coast Integrated College is a school for every child and every family.”
