The English and Drama departments visited the newly opened Homeplace for a performance of Seamus Heaney’s ‘Burial at Thebes’, a local translation of Sophocles’ ‘Antigone’. ┬áThe amateur production staged by local Magherafelt cross community drama club Off the Cuff served as a reminder of Heaney’s traditional roots. Homeplace is a celebration of Nobel poet Seamus Heaney’s life and work.

It is with extreme sadness that the Portadown College community pays tribute to our esteemed Principal Simon Harper who has passed away.
