Gala Programme

Congratulations to Ryan McGovern of Year 10 in St. Columba’s College Portaferry whose picture was selected for the cover of the 2016 Gala Programme.


Thanks very much to everyone who entered – we enjoyed sifting through the entries and it was fantastic to receive so many great pictures.

If you’ve experienced disruption to any of your Freeview channels, since the 4G “switch on” this week, you can apply for a free filter here:
