The Parkhall Integrated College community has been moving into brand new premises this week with the school at last united on a single site in modern facilities.
Parkhall IC has waited years for a new building to accommodate both the junior and senior pupils, having operated on a split site in Antrim for a decade. The old junior school site will be used to develop improved sports facilities which will be available for community use.
This academic year saw the first post-16 classes at Parkhall IC, which will work closely with neighbouring Antrim Grammar School to offer a wide range of subjects.
The school has been delighted by the support offered by the local community with volunteers, many co-ordinated by local churches, turning out to help pack up and move furniture, equipment and books from the old buildings. There has been a phased start to the new term with year groups being inducted individually into the new accommodation.
