She served in this role for 33 years up to her retirement in 1990 when she was awarded the MBE for services to education.

Success for Drumglass U14 Rugby Team!
Well done to our u14 rugby team for winning their first game of the season, 12-10 away to Markethill HS.
It was a very closely contested match between two well disciplined and determined teams, only separated by a touchline conversion by Drumglass captain Harvey Sinnamon who led from the front in attack and defence.
Man of the match was livewire fullback Jeff Pimental on debut. The try scorers were the flying wingers, Zak Moore and Jake Steen (also playing his first competitive game of rugby). Alexander & Thomas Courtney formed a formidable, hard hitting partnership in the second row and Noah McFarlane made a big impact from the bench in the second half with some string carries. Adam Watt carried strongly in the centre throughout the game and Sam Hall and Jack Rea also had impressive performances in the pack.
All in all it was a brave squad performance with plenty still to work on before the next two league fixtures in November. Committed attendance at Monday training after school is essential if this team of boys are going to reach their full potential.
