 Came across a post on facebook this morning that the N.I. Education board has decided to redevelop the school site of The Little Flower and St Patrick's Bearnageeha and build a new school or a super school.    Has anyone heard that officially .
So the history of Bearnageeha will disappear just like past schools and it was just 65 years old.   It will be a sad day ? :)
I'm patient with stupidity but not with those who are proud of it ...

It will be a great new school with the same great name, 'Blessed Holy Trinity'.
Keeping Our Catholic Faiths ethos....
Given todays crazy world, it will be good to know that many children will be instilled with a Catholic Christian moral compass.
Much needed these days.

Unfortunately when I was at the schhool from 1972 - 1979 there wasn't too much in the way of a catholic ethos - some of the most vcious brutes called 'teachers' viciously used the strap or worse hit you with slps and punches arounf the head and called this  part of the Catholic ethos and moral compass???One of the worst was Barney Kerr who viciously struck my friend Stevie on the side of his hie causing ringing and soreness in his over for over a week. Today Ker would have neen arested and charged with assault and lost his job and career.

I believe that you didn't go to the school.  Is that correct.?

I don't think it's a nice thing to pick an individual (Barney Keer) out for such a character assassination. It could also be libellous.
I happen to come across Bearnard Kerr in my ramblings to this day.
An elderly frail man, who always seems to have the time of day....living his last years out.
What benefit in mentioning him here???

You have insinuated that I am not wholly truthful.
Could you do me the courtesy of explaining why...?
