Past pupil Valerie great role model
AS a representative for the Belfast East constituency, I was pleased to read Valerie Pepio's letter championing Avoniel Primary School (Write Back, June 8).
Avoniel Primary School and Grosvenor Grammar School opened educational doors for Valerie that she was prepared to walk through, resulting in an international career.
From our highly skilled teachers, this is the type of encouragement all our pupils need to ensure they have successful school outcomes and can make applications for well-paid jobs.
Well done to Avoniel's past pupil. Valerie is a role model and there are many others. She can be an inspiration to all primary school pupils.
