A County Antrim school has been boosted by plans to become the first Catholic primary school in Northern Ireland to change to integrated status.
Seaview Primary School in Glenarm is seeking integration due to a fall in numbers.
The plan, which is under consultation, was instigated by parents concerned about its future.
The popularity of the proposal prompted a 50% increase in enrolment for the school’s reopening on Wednesday.
