Week 16

Week 16 – Tuesday 21st December 2021

It is the final few days of Term with Years 8, 9 and 10 present. Everyone is ready for their Christmas break and sadly, with the emergence of the Omicron variant, we are not fully sure how society will be impacted. It is important that Schools remain open and that our young people have stability. However, we have to be realistic and prepare for all eventualities and that includes remote learning.

Despite a challenging Term, we did our best to keep learning and teaching a priority, and to keep our school community as safe as possible. I am so proud of every pupil and every individual staff member.

I also wish to thank our parents/guardians for their continued support, kind words, patience and appreciation to all of us. Your support to your child goes without saying and you can be assured that we will do everything possible to support them as well.

Congratulations to our lucky winners, Brian O’ Neill and Catherine Cunningham in the Holy Trinity Alumni Association Christmas Draw. Our thanks are extended to our sponsors, Glenavon Hotel and LCC for their generous prizes of a one-year membership of Club Riviera and £400 Heating Oil voucher. The Alumni Association provides ongoing fund raising for the new school under the auspices of the Holy Trinity Foundation. It’s easy to sign up to the Alumni as well – just click on the link below

And so, we have reached the end of a long, hard working and demanding term and I know pupils and staff will be delighted to receive their holidays. School re-opens for Years 11 - 14 on Wednesday 5th January 2022, joined by Years 8 – 10 on Thursday 6th January 2022.

On behalf of everyone in the College, I wish all our pupils, staff, parents/guardians and readers, a Happy and Holy Christmas and a Peaceful New Year. Keep safe and please God, 2022 will be a more prosperous year for everyone.

See you next year!
