Newtown students benefit from Norbrook gift

September 25, 2012

Norbrook Laboratories Ltd has made a very generous donation to the Science Department at Newtownhamilton High School through which the school has purchased a complete set of books for the GCSE Double Award Science syllabus.

“Norbrook Laboratories Ltd is committed to supporting young people in their education.  We have developed partnerships with a number of schools, colleges and universities to help ensure that students have the best possible opportunities,” comments Lord Ballyedmond, Chairman and CEO, Norbrook Laboratories Ltd.  “We are delighted to support Newtownhamilton High School by providing these essential books.  Science is a very important area for Norbrook and we hope that some of the students who will use these books now will become Norbrook employees in the future.”

Garnet Mullan, Principal of Newtownhamilton High School, welcoming the most generous sponsorship stated “Pupils and staff are absolutely thrilled that Lord Ballydemond has included Newtownhamilton High in the range and type of schools that he supports.  It is further evidence not only of his munificent benefaction but also the positive benefits of closer links being developed between Newtownhamilton High and other schools in the Newry & Mourne ALC.  Together, the desire is to build a better, brighter future for all our young people.  I also thank Mr Chambers for his work in liaising with Sharon Doran in Norbrook Laboratories”.
