The Pat Corrin, OBE, Memorial Prize
We are delighted to announce the Pat Corrin, OBE, Memorial Prize, awarded in honour of a remarkable figure from the Manx community and a formidable Chairman of Governors at Ballakermeen for many years. Mrs Corrin was gracious, quiet and calm, and with a great eye for detail. She brought an unmatched dignity and authority to the role and was fearless in her decision-making, seeking only the best for the school and its young people. She gave unstintingly of her time, not only to meetings of the governing body, but also to a huge number of public events.
Mrs Corrinʼs values and principles live on in the ethos of Ballakermeen, and in the first year, this memorial award will be issued to students who have undertaken random acts of kindness, or served their community in an extraordinary fashion.
Roll of Honour
Raising over £17,000 for charity
We are fortunate at Ballakermeen to have an active High School Association – the BHSA, our version of a Parent-Teacher Association. I am delighted to invite you to read about some of the fantastic work that is undertaken by a group of dedicated parents for the benefit of all our students. If you’d like to get involved, our next meeting is on Tuesday October 1st at 6.30 pm. Meetings rarely last more than an hour – we know how busy you are!
