SKILGANABAN PRIMARY EDUCATION SCHOOL
This is Skilganaban Primary Education School back in 1930, the school was
about half-way between Ballyclare and Ballynure and was on the Southern bank
of the Sixmilewater river. It has been established ther in 1825 but the school
closed in 1933 three years after this photograph was taken and the pupils
moved to the National School in Ballyclare. The children parents would most
likely have been farmers, workers at the Northern Paper Mill and from a cluster
of houses at Millvale. The teachers standing at either end of the back row
are Mr Gillen and Miss Patton, sadly none of the childrens names are known.
