Friends of Dalriada
Thank you very much for taking an interest in the new Friends of Dalriada programme which our school is initiating as part of the Dalriada 2020 Vision.
Here you will find a lot more information as to what being a Friend of Dalriada will entail and discover how you can ensure that Dalriada days will be the best days in the lives of generations of pupils, for many years to come.
First and foremost Friends of Dalriada will be a means for the community to connect and re-connect with Dalriada School.
With a proud history of success in academics and extracurricular activities for 80 years, Dalriada School has been the cornerstone for the development of thousands of students from the Ballymoney area and beyond. It is at the heart of the community and we want to ensure that going forward that this heart beats stronger than ever before.
Dalriada School’s 2020 Vision aims to build on the schools success and ensure that over the next four years the students here avail of state of the art facilities and an environment that stimulates learning and maximises student potential in a wide range of extracurricular activities.
In order to achieve the goals set out in the 2020 Vision, Friends of Dalriada will contribute to the School’s fundraising initiatives by pledging a monthly donation at the level of your choosing and will also be given the opportunity to get much more hands on by meeting on a quarterly basis to discuss ideas for events and potential fundraising opportunities.
We want your ideas and enthusiasm, your help and your community spirit. With this indomitable Dalriada spirit, there is nothing we cannot achieve for our pupils and our community.
