Alderman Paul Porter joined in the fun at Parkview Special School’s Fun Day, which took place on August 1.
Teacher Mrs Gillian Pierce, head of Department at Parkview, said: “We run the summer activity scheme for the children every year and it is truly inspiring to see how much enjoyment they get from two week-long activities. We are really pleased to see Alderman Paul Porter visit the school and I would like to extend our appreciation to Lisburn City Council for its continued vocal and financial support.”
The school offers education to children from 3 years to 19 years.
Alderman Porter, who is chairman of the leisure services committee, said: “It is very important that Parkview Special School continues to thrive and grow. It offers a great educational service to families with children who have special needs, with specialised caring staff. It is a very welcoming place to be and to see the children enjoy the summer activity scheme is extremely heart-warming. The council has continuously supported the summer scheme at the school and we were delighted to accept the invitation to visit the fun day. I wish to commend everyone for their hard work.”
