Friday 31st January 2020
January has come and gone, and it’s great to see the evenings are a little brighter – can’t say the same for the mornings yet but they’ll come.
With the events of Open Evening and Taster Days last week, the focus this week has been reinvigorating the learning and teaching in the classroom. Assessment Week will be occurring at the start of March and this is a busy Term for completion of Controlled Assessments and Portfolio work. Don’t forget about Maths Casualty every Tuesday in Room 16 and well done to 14B Business Studies students who gained a Business insight into the fitness industry, courtesy of Aaron’s Gym Cookstown.
This week we celebrated Catholic Schools Week with the theme ‘Living in Harmony with God’s Creation. Each day, a different aspect of our faith and life was commemorated in Assembly.
On the Sporting front, the Senior Netballers had a great win over Shimna Integrated College with a scoreline of 26 – 5 points and now proceed to the Semi-Finals. Year 9 lost by 3 points to St Pius but the Year 11 Treanor Team had a great win against Our Lady’s Castleblayney with a 6 point margin. Tomorrow of course, sees the MacRory Team in action against St Michael’s Enniskillen who were last year’s MacRory Holders and Hogan Champions. Good Luck to the Team and their coaches - do your best on the field lads!
Many of the GCSE and GCE Art students attended a watercolour workshop with local artist George Gourley, as part of a Shared Education Initiative with Cookstown High School.
Years 9 & 10 had their monthly Reward Trip to Mc Donald’s, whilst Year 9 celebrated a range of successes in Assembly yesterday morning. Well done to everyone involved.
We are approaching decision time for Year 10 GCSE Choices, so this morning they listened to the Careers Adviser give a brief overview of how to choose their subjects wisely and what would benefit them the most.
In conjunction with Fareshare, our Project commenced today with our first Feasty Friday. Pupils were treated to hot toast, muffins, potato bread, juice and foot tapping traditional music – what a great way to spend your break!. More of the same next Friday!
I placed an update with regard to our Capital Build on the Website today, so please log onto www.holytrinitycollege.org to read about out progress. This is the biggest and most far reaching project in the College’s history and the proposed new school, when complete, will provide pupils with ‘state of the art’ facilities and resources, thereby continuing to provide a first class, quality education for our children and for future generations, within a modern, inspiring and innovative bespoke learning environment.
We wish a safe journey to the pupils and staff who are travelling to Manchester tomorrow morning to attend the Manchester Utd V Wolves game. And if you’re at a lose end tomorrow afternoon, travel down to Derrygonnelly for 2.00pm kick-off and cheer on the MacRory Team V St Michael’s Enniskillen. Good Luck Lads!
Bye for now.
