Week 11

Week 11 – Friday 19th November 2021


Across all schools, we celebrated Anti-Bullying Week with the theme One Kind Word. And Year 8 raised awareness of how different and unique we all are, by wearing odd socks around the College. Brilliant idea!. One kind word leads to another – kindness fuels kindness. Let’s do this all the time.


The Scholastic Book Fair was in full flow this week with many pupils buying a wide range of books for themselves or possibly, as Christmas presents. Reading is such a joy.


Fifa 22 Competition is under way with submission of entries closing today. Good luck everyone in the competition.


It has been a busy week for Year 11 as they individually met their Form Teachers to discuss progress and potential for GCSE. Work hard, challenge yourselves and be proud of your success girls and boys.


Our REACH Programme (Resilience Education Assisting Change to Happen) has been fantastic for Years 8 & 9 in promoting emotional health and wellbeing, and on Wednesday, they had a great Team building day at Woodhall Outdoor Learning Centre.


Learning happens in the classroom but access to first-hand experience transfers the theory into practice. A huge thanks to Paula Wilson and her Team in the Glenavon Hotel for facilitating our Business students on life in the hospitality sector.


It has been a phenomenal competition in KS3 and our winners of the National Poetry Day Competition was announced on Tuesday. What a success – look out for these poets of the future.


Bye for now.
