FUTURE EVENTS UPDATE
Dear Old Scholar
Unfortunately this year’s AGM and the President’s Dinner have had to be cancelled because of the restrictions in place at the moment. The venue for the dinner, Riddel Hall, will be closed until September, and when it re-opens we will look at the possibility of organising an event in the autumn, if circumstances allow. In the meantime, we will be in touch with all of those who had paid in order to issue refunds.
The table quiz scheduled for April has also been cancelled. We look forward to a time when we will be able to meet together as normal and if you haven’t already done so, please sign up on our Friends for Life page at https://friendsschoollisburn.org.uk/index.php/friends-for-life/ffl so that we can keep you informed of future events.
Until then, we hope everyone stays well.
With best wishes
Stephen Moore, OSA President
which will allow us to keep you updated on what is happening at School.

(One Year Term)
Friends’ School, which was founded in 1774, has a proud history. It is, in fact, the oldest school in Ulster to the east of the Bann. In line with Quaker tradition records have been carefully preserved and stored material represents a rich collection of information about the School over 240 years. Since 2005 the various records have been brought together into a central archive where they can be consulted more conveniently in a special room. The collection consists of pupil lists, school books, annual reports, curriculum matters, magazines, photographs, memorabilia and a collection of ancient books withdrawn from everyday use in the library. Together they provide a valuable picture of School life over the past centuries and are being constantly supplemented by the addition of current items of future historical interest.
