The performance also marked the pending retirement of Mrs Anne Magee, who has worked at Jordanstown School for just under 40 years, including the past 10 as principal.

Mayor of Antrim and Newtownabbey, Cllr Thomas Hogg commented: “Each and every one of the pupils put on a fantastic show. It was evident that the staff and pupils at the school, as well as the technical team, had put a lot of work into the performance.

“I would also like to take this opportunity to wish Mrs Magee a long, healthy and happy retirement.”
