 FUTURE EVENTS UPDATE

 

Dear Old Scholar,

I'm sure that last year when we cancelled the AGM and dinner, none of us thought that we might have to do it again this year.

Sadly, although the pandemic is hopefully coming under control, we must still take all necessary precautions and thus this year's AGM will not take place.

We must thank Alec McCullagh for his work in preparing the accounts and Aidan for all his efforts taking over from Brian as treasurer.

I hope that those of you who normally receive a magazine have been pleased with John's work as editor.

Once again I wish you well and hope that next year we may be able to convene.

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

Maxine Boyd, Secretary

 Old Scholars are also encouraged to sign up to our Friends for Life website at

https://friendsschoollisburn.org.uk/index.php/friends-for-life/ffl,

which will allow us to keep you updated on what is happening at School.

Archive Room

Burney Cup Winners1940

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school books, annual reports, curriculum matters, magazines, photographs, memorabilia and a collection of ancient books withdrawn from everyday use in the library.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. 

It is important that pupils, staff, Old Scholars and the general public have access to this material and that the collection does not remain static but is constantly updated and developed.  The Archive Room is open to visit by arranging an appointment during term time either by contacting School on 028 92 662156 or by contacting This email address is being protected from spambots.
