It’s time again for our yearly dander (hope the sun shines). It will take place on the afternoon of Wednesday 7th June and its purpose is to raise funds to replace some of our ageing ICT equipment. All our Year 8 – 10 pupils have a sponsorship form, it would be lovely if the whole school community could help fill them up.
The Dander this year has been sponsored by BIESTY’S BALLYMONEY. They have kindly donated a bottle of water and a piece of fruit for each pupil taking part.
If you would like to join our school in September 2018 you are invited to come along and listen to a short presentation about entry to Dalriada. The Headmaster Mr Skelton will speak about the process and method that we use to enable pupils to transfer into our year 8 for the academic year beginning September 2018. Details and guidance regarding the AQE process and the Common Entrance Assessment will be outlined with application forms available on line through the following link AQE.
Here are the presentations that were given at the Year 12 – Post GCSE Options parent’s evening. They can also be found in the School Info – Information Evening Presentations section.
