Councillor Angela Dobbins has congratulated Steelstown Primary School, who were crowned Best School in N.I. At Families First Education Awards this weekend at Titanic Belfast.


Councillor Dobbins said: “The Families First NI Education Awards honours individuals or businesses that make family life easier. It is a means of thanking them for the work, time and interest in children and recognition of ordinary people doing an extraordinary job.


With over 2,500 nominations the competition was whittled to 8 schools, two of which were local, Ebrington PS and Steelstown PS. I was delighted to learn that one of our local schools not only won best school in County Derry , but actually went on to be the overall winner and was crowned best school NI.

I wish to extend huge congratulations to headmistress Siobhan Gillen and all her team.”
