Tuesday 22nd March - Notice from St.Joseph's Board of Governors:

"The Board of Governors acknowledges the concerns expressed by many parents that the school will be closed on two days this term in order to facilitate polling for the Northern Ireland Assembly Election and the EU Referendum.
"Those concerns have been communicated to the Chief Electoral Officer for Northern Ireland who appreciates the impact that these arrangements will have on the school community.
He is anxious to assist the school by addressing the situation going forward. While plans are too far advanced to revise the arrangements for this year's polls, he has undertaken to carry out a review before the next scheduled elections in 2019. The review will examine the potential for using nearby alternative premises as a polling station."
