Dr Louis Campbell, former Deputy Principal of Belfast Royal Academy has agreed to undertake the role of Acting Principal of Ben Madigan in the interim period until a permanent Principal is recruited, which will begin immediately. During his time in BRA, Dr Campbell was the link Vice Principal for Ben Madigan and brings with him a wealth of pastoral and leadership experience to this role. Those of you who know Dr Campbell will confirm that he is an exceptional individual who is fully committed to the ethos and values both of Belfast Royal Academy and Ben Madigan. His loyalty for and love of the School is reflected in the willingness he has shown in taking up this post and we are extremely fortunate to have someone of his calibre leading the school in the short term.
We are looking forward to the start of the new academic year.

Our Library has changed a lot over the last 2 years. This week we have removed some of the older shelving to make way for some new and modern, child-friendly shelving. We also reorganised the books into alphabetical order and author collections and made some new and exciting reading spaces. We have a little more sorting work to do but we can't wait to let the children back in next week to see their new Library.
A Massive congratulations to our first four Digital Leaders. Andrew, Emmet, Eleanor and Krish submitted extremely high standard application forms and will take part in some training over the next few months to help out with the overall running of ICT within the school.
In January a group of pupils, parents and staff travelled to Austria for our 2019 Ski Trip. Everyone had a fantastic trip and they enjoyed some perfect weather for brushing up and improving their skills. Everyone involved thoroughly enjoyed to the trip - another fantastic Ski Trip for Ben Madigan.
