Newry, Mourne and Down District Council Chairperson Councillor Mickey Ruane attended the opening day of the school and said, “I am delighted that the Polish Supplementary School, which represents and serves the largest minority ethnic community in the district, has found a new home and is able to continue its important work in retaining and developing children’s ability to speak their mother tongue.” St. Joseph’s Boys High School Principal Declan Murray added, “When approached by the Polish Supplementary School we were committed to doing whatever we could to help as a community-orientated school.”
