Week 19: Saturday 28th January 2023
If you haven’t guessed by now, the excitement within Holy Trinity College results from our terrific win today - by 1 point – in the MacRory Cup Semi-final against St. Patrick’s Academy, Dungannon. It was a hard fought match between 2 x Teams who gave it their all. The intensity and determination by both Teams has to be commended. But again, in injury, time, that magic point score was there and Holy Trinity now proceed to the MacRory Final for the 2nd year in a row. What an achievement to be in back-back Finals.
A scary piece of information was announced at Year 12 Assembly on Wednesday - there are only 56 school days until the first GCSE Exam commences in May. That is hard to believe – so the focus is on, the work ethic must be evident and coursework almost completed. Our young people put a lot of pressure on themselves to do well – we all want this for you - but at the same time, you must look after your mental health and talk to someone if you feel overwhelmed. There is always help and support around.
The theme for Catholic Schools Week was that of ‘Walking together in Faith and Love’. Year 13 Pope John Paul II Students and 8 AOH attended a schools’ Mass in Portadown on Tuesday. Our Pope John Paul Students and Music Department also contributed to 10.00am Mass in Holy Trinity Church on Friday morning. It was beautiful.
Preparations are underway for online Year 9 & Year 10 Parent Teacher Meetings on 10 February. Year 10 Options will also be discussed on this day. Details re appointment bookings will be forwarded as soon as possible.
Great to see the Running Club out in action yesterday and the great work undertaken by 9 JMK in vocabulary enrichment.
