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.

North South Ministerial Council Project

Twelve schools from across Ireland were selected to take part in the North South Ministerial Council funded project.  Each school developed a short film using digital media.  Mr Addley, Mr Logan and Mrs FitzGerald worked with 9AY on the project.  9Ay worked enthusiastically and produced amazing media clips.  Our chosen topic was the Ulster Plantation and the impact of migration then and also today.  We surveyed our Newcomer pupils and parents to obtain a current perspective.  Four pupils will be travelling to Dublin on Wednesday 18th May to represent LJHS and showcase their short film at the Irish Film Institute.
