Decision to keep school is correct

I AM pleased to learn the Council for Catholic Maintained Schools (CCMS) has agreed to suspend consultation regarding St Patrick's Primary School at Burrenreagh, outside Castlewellan, which was under threat of closure.

In March, I wrote to the CCMS and Education Minister, strongly urging the retention of St Patrick's.

The decision by the CCMS to retain St Patrick's is the right one.
