Friday 24th February 2023
It’s great to be back and whilst the Mid Term break was very welcome, Spring is now approaching with new opportunities, brighter evenings and a quick step in our feet.
Sadly, the MacRory Cup Final didn’t go our way in Healy Park, Omagh on Sunday 12th February but I really want to say how proud I am of the entire Team and their coaches. It has been a fabulous campaign since last September and every young lad worked so hard in supporting each other, showing commitment, leadership and sportsmanship. To be in the Cup Final 2 years in a row is a momentous occasion for the College. Whilst disappointed and we extend our congratulations to Omagh CBS, we will regroup and prepare for next year. Well done everyone. You can hold your heads up very high and be ever so proud of yourselves.
Continuing on the sporting scene, the U-14 Girls had a great win against St Pius with a scoreline of 10-5 v 3-11. The Year 9 Boys had a comfortable win against Loreto Coleraine and well done also to the Year 10 Netball Girls who came 3rd in the EA Cross Community Netball Tournament. Fantastic all rounders!
It was a mixed bag this week with Industrial Action on Tuesday, followed by Examinations for Years 11 & 12 on Wednesday – Friday. Everyone continues to work hard and the positive attitude is amazing. Students and staff received their ashes on Ash Wednesday, a time to reflect and repent about sin, and prepare for Easter.
Year 10 had difficult decisions to make last week re Year 11 GCSE Subject Options and on Wednesday, it was the turn of Year 12 in preparation for A Level. In the meantime, work hard in preparation for your GCSE Exams. Hard work always pays off in the end and you will see this in your results in August.
Don’t forget! It’s Assessment Week next week – a little extra revision never did anyone any harm.
Have a great weekend.
