LARNE HIGH SCHOOL previously known as
Greenland Secondary School serves the communities well.
There is no Old Pupils Association so I'm told, why
Many of the ex-pupils I am sure would be interested
or are they like me, because of living overseas require
those who live in the Larne area to come forward to
take an active role. The Larne Tech Old Boys carrys
on, yet for how long, as the Larne Technical College
closed a number of years ago.

As a 5th year pupil at Larne High School, I am very
proud to attend this school. I am very disappointed
that past pupils of the school are putting it down.
it takes alot of time for the principle and teachers
to organise the 50th celebrations while having to plan
out in advance lesson plans for everyday and all their
classes. i am deeply annoyed at the fact that past
pupils have no consideration for the school now.

The school has always been very good for 6th formers
but recently subjects have been going downhill because
of the schools recent partnership with the tech and
St Comgalls. Last year the AS level ICT class was disgraceful.
Pupils were left without a teacher for three months
and evenutaully got a teacher who told them the wrong
things to do for their portfillos. As a result pupils
now have to compelete work from last year ontop of this
years but we now have a teacher form this school. Despite
this the current year 13s are being given a tech teacher
for half their classes and our current teacher is trying
to explain to the teach teacher how to teach the course.
The pupils are also very annoyed at this as they were
promised before enrolling in 6th that they would have
teachers from this school.

Regarding the 50th Anniversary (GOLDEN JUBILEE YEAR) of the
opening of GREENLAND Secondary Intermediate School - now known
as LARNE HIGH SCHOOL in 1957.
There has been no public announcement of public events/date(s)
to mark this special occasion. The anniversary date of opening
to pupils falls in September 2007.
Numerous former pupils from overseas wishing to participate
are awaiting anniversary event(s) announcement.
Via the local media the School has asked for photographs,
and stories, enquiries, etc., to; Larne High School, 20 Sallagh
Park, Larne, BT40 Tel: 028 2827 2159.
NB I've been told that some photographs loaned for the 40th
anniversary in 1997 were lost by the school, I recommend copying
prior to lending.

You do not give your name,
Two Larne friends contacted the school on my behalf this past
week were informed that though the event was to be marked
no final programme has been finalised. This is not very helpful
for those former pupils interested in attending any event(s)
I personally contacted the School Office today and was advised
that though several ideas have been muted no actual dates
or event could be confirmed until early 2007. Events will
take place during 2007-2008 the 50 th Anniversary year.
If you have knowledge of any event dates I would appreciate
Thank you in anticipation of your reply
Pupil at Larne High - Nov '06
I am a pupil at Larne High and I am very proud to be part
of the school. There has been things thought of and organized
by the school's council regarding the celebrations. I am looking
forward in seeing these ideas being brought together by former
pupils and present.
Glen Brown - Nov '06
To All those interested in the 50th anniversary I will be
in contact with the LHS after the autumn break.
The Moyle PS is also celebrating it's 50th and I hear that
they are looking for stories from past pupils and staff.
Again, once this current school holiday is over and the school
resumed I will try and obtain an update.

I would be very interested in a reunion for the 50th Anniversary
of Larne High. Please let me know how things are going.
All the best for now.
Glen Brown - June '06
Recently, I spoke to the school office regarding their event(s)
to mark in 2007 the 50th anniversary of the school's intake
of the first pupils in September 1957.
Larne High intend to mark the occasion, yet surprisingly
they have not yet begun planning.
I and numerous friends and former pupils from farafield as,
Australia, Canada and New Zealand intend to attend 50th anniversaryn
once the dates and events are known. Intending to hold a reunion
to coincide with same.
It is hoped that the school will make an announcement soon
to facilitate those intending to travel back to Larne to pariticipate.
Several require advance notification to arrange time off from
their careers and to make their travel arrangements.
Once I have the information I will help circulate it to as
many as possible.
Meanwhile, to those visiting Larne, I recommend 'LARNE ALIVE'
and commend it's organisors for the continuing varied annual
public entertainment programme. There's something everyone.
During my recent visit I heard praise from from two Americans
from Chicago, a Far east family and dare I say it. Yes, alot
of nice folk came down for the day from Ballymena to shop,
found themselves sharing with Larne folk , sun, music and
a wide range of steam related themes of good public entertainment.
Larne may not be the most beautiful town yet! It's 'Larne
Alive' does give it life and hope for it's future.
I have enjoyed several events todate.

LARNE HIGH SCHOOL 1957-2007
The School's 50th anniversary programme has still to be announced
at time of writing. However planning for the 40th (1997) anniversary
did not begin until the September of the preceding year.
Interest from home and abroad for a 50th Reunion is considerable
and hopefully when held will coincide with School organised
event(s). This coinciding will permit former pupils and their
friends from near and far to meet many old friends.
Yours in friendship.
