Friday 20th January 2023
We have had a very busy few days this week but they certainly were very enjoyable. Not even the snow and ice could dampen our spirits!
We thank our Primary 7 Pupils and Parents/Guardians who availed of appointments on Thursday to visit the College, find out what happens in different Departments and speak with pupils and staff. They received a very personal approach. We certainly hope Primary 7 pupils will make Holy Trinity College their no.1 choice for the next journey in their education.
Did you watch our virtual open evening videos on Thursday? They were brilliant and our pupils and staff were great ambassadors for the College. If you require any further information, please log on to our Website/Facebook, where you can see the videos again and read our Prospectus or telephone the College on 028 8676 2420. Staff will only be too glad to assist you.
Then yesterday, over 300 x Primary 7 pupils visited the College again from our partner Primary schools for their Subject Sampling Day. The pupils were a delight to have in the College - their manners and behaviour were impeccable. They visited a range of subjects and interacted with pupils and staff. They also had the opportunity to have lunch in the Canteen. I hope both the children and their staff had a real insight into Holy Trinity College and how hard we work. A great day altogether!
In addition, the P7 pupils had worked very hard in their own schools on a Sentinus Sustainable Community Project, funded via Extended Schools and organised under the guidance of Mr Loughran. Pupils designed and wrote how Cookstown would look in the future – I certainly wouldn’t like to be judging the competition as the final Projects were very high level. Well done Primary 7 and your teachers.
What else have we been up to? Apart from learning and teaching, Year 8 had their Health Appraisals, a motivational talk to Year 10 about studying and selecting the right choice of GCSE subjects, MacRory training, distributing Fareshare food parcels, A Level Examinations and so on. It just never stops in this school!
Enjoy your weekend.
