In this week’s Portadown Times we exclusively reveal the contents of a report by the SELB slamming education standards in Craigavon.

And in another twist to the Dickson Plan saga, Education Minister John O’Dowd calls on the board to resolve the failings here by September 2015.

In a bumper edition we speak to youth football coaches about Luke McCullough, Portadown’s first Northern Ireland international footballer since the 1990s.

We have four pages of pictures from the Junior Orange and Commonwealth Day parades in the town and features on Portadown Hockey Club’s Mary Martin and the new principal of Lismore Comprehensive School.
