Lessons in safety at Lismore Comprehensive School: How one NI school is adapting to the new normal

Masks, social distancing and one-way halls... how NI school is adapting to the new normal

Pupils returning to a Craigavon school haven't just been getting used to new Covid-19 regulations; Lismore Comprehensive School also has a new principal and, for the first time in its 48-year history, a new uniform.

New principal Shauna Lennon (47) was appointed to the role earlier this year, succeeding Fiona Kane, who moved to head up the nearby St Ronan's College in Lurgan.

Having served as vice-principal for three years and taught IT and maths at the school for more than 20 years, Mrs Lennon said she was ready for her new challenge, which includes restoring a sense of normality for both students and staff as they adapt to social distancing, face masks and one-way corridor systems.
