Home  /  News  /  Current Page

A massive thank you from everyone at the Belfast Model School for Girls to the primary school students and their parents who came to our Open Evening on Thursday 16th January 2020 to experience what our wonderful school has to offer.  This is always a very exciting time for the girls who are making choices about which school they would like to attend in September 2020 and the Open Evening is a great opportunity to meet prospective students and parents and to allow them to visit our state-of-the-art facilities and exceptional provision.

Ms P Stuart, Principal, said ‘Having been Principal here now for two full years, I can sincerely say that this is an excellent school. What I like most is the ‘feel’ of this school – the sense of order and discipline; the spirit of cooperation and friendliness; the warmth of the relationships between the staff, parents and students; the sense of care and joy – all brought together by a strong focus on high-quality learning and teaching. It has often been said that young people may forget some of what we teach them but they will never forget how we made them feel – I know in this school that the girls do feel good about themselves – they are confident, kind, smart, polite, well informed and very proud of their school and their community – we are very proud of them  – they have come along this evening, in great numbers, as ambassadors for their school…I think next year I will just let the students do the whole thing – no need for me to speak – as they do such a great job and this is their school. We are delighted that we now have 200 places available in Year 8 for September 2020 so hopefully no child will be disappointed’.

Thank you also to the very hardworking and dedicated staff and students who gave our visitors a fantastic display of the work and life of our school. Congratulations and very well done to one and all!
