Week 22

Week 22 – Friday 11th February 2022

It certainly has been all go this week – MacRory fever has taken over!. Doesn’t the whole school look lovely with its bunting, flags, signage and merchandise? Such a brilliant atmosphere in the College all week and the amount of support that we have received from far and wide has been unbelievable. The MacRory Team and Management are ready to give it their all on Sunday v St. Mary’s Magherafelt, in the Athletic Grounds, Armagh @ 2.30pm. Looking forward to seeing you there.

Today has been extremely busy with Year 10 and Year 11 Parent Teacher Meetings. The meetings are online via School Cloud and enables you to have that 1 – 1 face time with a parent re your child’s progress. Year 10 are at a crucial stage in their development as they are selecting their Subject options as well in preparation for GCSE in Year 11. HTC never stops – always moving forward!

Year 8 got the Monday blues out of the way early with interactive workshops with their Year 13 & 14 Mental Health Ambassadors. They engaged in a programme based around the 5 steps to well-Being: Connect – Be active – Take notice- Keep learning – Give. The pupils were brilliant, thoughtful and reflective in their own well-being. We look forward to this continuing.

Congratulations to all Year 12 and Year 11 DA Science pupils who achieved terrific GCSE Modular results yesterday in English, Maths & Science. Considering what the pupils have experienced in the past 2 years, and the pressure placed on them in the classroom, they excelled yesterday in their results. We are so proud of them all.

The College will be closed all of next week for a well-deserved break for everyone. Be sure to relax, refresh and re-energise yourselves.

PS: I look forward to seeing you all in Armagh on Sunday for an historic occasion for Holy Trinity College.

Have a lovely relaxing mid-term break, stay safe and keep well.
