Week 10

Week 10 – Friday 12th November 2021

Another busy and fast week. A huge thanks to those who completed our parent survey, the positive results of which, will contribute to our future vision. We intend to forward the survey outcomes as soon as we can.

Our school is a hive of activity all the time. Yes learning and teaching is our core priority, but the children are involved in so many additional activities organised by staff or senior students. Year 14 Sports Leaders Caoimhe Mc Grath, Cara Mulgrew and Grainne Mc Donald ably assisted Year 8 Girls in their recent football blitz in MUSA. Students assist with Fareshare, distributing tasty snacks at break time to preparing Food parcels for our families and community. The Shoe Box appeal is also under way – helping out those in need. And no matter which corner you turn, you’ll always see a football, handball, basketball or even a hurley stick in recreational time.

We were delighted to welcome the Sam Maguire Cup to the College on Wednesday under the watchful eye of Mr Mc Geary. Year 10 certainly had a lot of key questions to be answered!

I commend Year 12 who undertook a Maths GCSE Mock exam yesterday = 2.5 hours. Their application, work ethic and determination was truly admired. This of course is in preparation for GCSE Modular exams which will begin later this month.

We are delighted to have a range of Shared Education activities up and running again. Year 10 had a very enjoyable Digital Workshop in the Burnavon yesterday, devising comic strips and Podcasts.

Good luck to our Moortown girls in the Ulster Ladies Junior Final on Sunday. You will do yourselves proud.

Enjoy your weekend and bye for now.
