Parents, staff and the wider community celebrated the opening of the Shankill Road’s newest school as Baroness May Blood officially cut the ribbon on Edenderry Nursery School.
Principal Nancy Magrath paid tribute to the parents and staff who had worked to bring the new school to fruition.
“It’s been a long journey to get to where we are today. Many parents and staff have worked tirelessly over the years and I would like to thank the entire school community who have supported us in the journey,” said Ms Magrath.
The £1.3million school on Lanark Way will cater for 52 pre-school pupils.

“Part of the EA’s vision for education is a fit for purpose, modern schools estate capable of meeting the ever-changing needs of our children and young people,” said Mr Sayers.
“The new Edenderry Nursery School is a state of the art building that ensures future generations of children will get the best possible start to their education.
“I congratulate all involved and wish the principal, staff, governors, parents, and particularly the children of Edenderry Nursery School, every success in the future."
