Mrs L E Currie

Welcome to Lurgan Junior High School. On behalf of our Board of Governors, our Teaching and Non-Teaching Staff and our current pupils, I want to take this opportunity to tell you just a little about our school.
Lurgan JHS is an inclusive, all ability Key Stage 3 school which welcomes pupils and families from all faiths and backgrounds and is proud to do so within a Christian ethos and with Christian values of tolerance, respect and love. This is reflected in our School Motto – the 3 ‘R’s- Respect for self, Respect for others, their property and the school environment and the promotion of Responsibility. We strive to develop these values in our entire school community by providing a safe, caring and tolerant environment, through the development of positive relationships at all levels, through the implementation of our school policies and through active and innovative learning and teaching.

Millennium Way/Malcolm Road Junction

VERY IMPORTANT NOTICE FROM TRANSPORT NI

TO: PARENTS, PUPILS & STAFF

The next phase of traffic restrictions will commence at the Millennium Way/Malcolm Road junction on Monday 16th January.

Traffic will be able to travel along Millennium Way from Union Street and turn left only onto Malcolm Road towards high street (the right turn onto Russell Drive will be prevented).

Traffic will not be able to turn off High Street onto Malcolm Road out of town and;

Russell Drive will be closed in both directions in the proximity of Trasna Way.

Parents and pupils walking to school are advised to follow the advisory signage provided.

It is anticipated that these measures will be in place for 5 weeks and a further update will be provided as appropriate.

Millennium Way Distruptions

Following the Christmas holidays works are due to recommence on the Extension to Millennium Way scheme. These works are likely involve travel disruption for motorists over the next few months and the first element of the work will require a closure of Flush Place from the roundabout to Hamilton Street from Tuesday 10th January until Friday 13th January inclusive.

This road closure is likely to result in delays for motorists in the area and in particular for those travelling into Lurgan along Avenue Road, Banbridge Road and Gilford Road and it would be advisable to leave additional time for your journey during this period and throughout the duration of the works. Parents and pupils walking to school are advised to follow the advisory signage provided.

Over the coming months the proposed construction works will require a number of different traffic management layouts and restrictions at both the Malcolm Road and Flush Place/Gilford Road/Banbridge Road junctions and further updates will be provided as the work progresses.

TransportNI will continue to work with the construction contractor, Gibson Bros, to complete the works as soon as possible and will endeavour to minimise delays during the remainder of the works.

School bus information

Some important information regarding some of our school buses. From Monday 7th November the following buses will be running 5 minutes earlier in the mornings:
 
a. Moira Bus
b. Currie’s Turn/Waringstown Bus.

Update on Millennium Way Extension Scheme.

 

Despite good progress with the construction of the new section of Millennium Way, progress has been slower than expected at both the Flush Place/Gilford Road/Banbridge Road and Millennium Way/Malcolm Road junctions. Both junctions contain a significant amount of utility provider equipment and despite considerable advance works the necessary alteration and diversion of this equipment has been protracted and has proved more challenging than anticipated. Works are now expected to complete in Spring 2017.

TransportNI will continue to work with the Gibson Bros and utility providers to complete the works as soon as possible and will endeavour to minimise delays during the remainder of the works and in particular the busy Christmas period.

Football vs Dromore 13/10/16

The Under 12 football team have had a fantastic start to their Mid Ulster league campaign with a superb win over Dromore High School! It was a fantastic all round team performance and Lurgan dominated from the first whistle. Captain Harry Norton scored a hat trick, Cameron McKay got two and the others were scored by Tom Leathem, Ashley Beckett, Jack Managh, Ben McAvoy and Lexx McConville. Mackenzie Craig also had an outstanding game in midfield.

The U12 Blue Squad competed against Dromore’s B team also winning comfortably! Goals were scored by Luke Cairns (3), Cody Ferris (2), Connor McAlinden (2), Daniel Graham (2), and Stuart Harrison (1).

A great start to the season!
