Our school is situated on the shores of Lough Neagh. It is famous for eel. Each year the eel journey to the Sargossa Sea and make the return journey up the River Bann. Our School Crest is symbolic:  
The Elvers - reminds us that we are here to guide the young on their quest for knowledge during seven very important years in their life.  
The Acorns - Derrymore means “Big Oak”. We are reminded that “Tall oaks from little acorns grow.”  
The Great Crested Grebe - is an annual migrant. It’s coming serves to remind us of the changing seasons, of eternity and of the eternal values to which we are all committed.  
The Motto “To Seek, To Strive, To Learn” - reminds us that our lives and our actions modelled on those of Christ are sure means of leading others to him. It is a constant reminder of the promise of Christ to his followers “He that shall do and teach shall be called great in the kingdom of Heaven” (Matthew 5:9).
