Ballynahinch - Assumption Grammar School, Girls 1934

Assumption Grammar School, Ballynahinch, the only Assumption school in Ireland, was founded in 1933 by Mother Baptist McKenny with 20 boarders. The school prospered and in 1936 was approved by the Ministry of Education. Over the years the school has grown in reputation. Success gained by pupils not only in examinations but also in literary and scientific competitions as well as in public speaking, sport and the arts are regular features of its life.

As in all Assumption schools, the pupils in Ballynahinch wear the Assumption Crest on their uniform. The cross on the crest is a symbol of the love of God, which is above everything and holding everything together. The anchor is a symbol of stead fastness, hope and security. The Southern Cross which links our school to its origins in the southern hemisphere (South Africa) , is a symbol of God's guidance and direction in ourlives.
