Sinn Féin MLA Megan Fearon and Councillor Mickey Larkin have congratulated Dromintee Primary School for providing increased pupil support through the formation of a Pastoral Care Ambassador team selected by students at the school.



Nine pupils attended a course at Kilkeel which dealt with anti-bullying procedures and support structures for students.

Larkin told Newry Times, “Dromintee was the only primary school present for the programme. The children excelled at the course and this is a credit to themselves, their parents and the school.

“My colleague Megan Fearon and myself met the Pastoral Care Ambassadors at an anti-bullying assembly at the school,” he added.



Megan Fearon MLA commended the pupils and school for their endeavours. “I was overjoyed to return to my former Primary School to witness the Ambassadors present to their classmates, teachers and governors.

“Dromintee Primary School has now in place a support network for pupils which is normally only found at secondary level and above. This is an important advancement for the school and I was heartened at the enthusiasm shown by the Ambassadors for their project,” the local MLA added.

Following the assembly Megan presented the nine pupils with their anti-bullying ambassador badges.
