Week 23

Week 23 – Friday 25th February 2022

Hello everyone

I hope you had a lovely relaxing Mid Term and I can’t believe we have now finished our first week back already - the Mid-Term Break is as far away as ever!

The weather certainly had quite a mix this week and the snow yesterday! Not very pleasant to drive in so I hope everyone was careful.

I’m sure you can remember the terrific atmosphere in the Athletic Grounds in Armagh, Sunday week ago when the College played St Mary’s in an exciting MacRory Cup Final. Whilst it didn’t go our way, I am very proud of the Team and their coaches, and the great strides they made during their MacRory campaign. The Team worked extremely hard and provided a momentous occasion for the College. I am confident they are a team to be reckoned with next year! Well done everyone. You can hold your heads up very high.

This was a fairly quiet week with lots of hard work. Years 11 and 12 were involved in daily revision in advance of SA and DA Exams. I commend all the pupils who sat these Exams. Their work ethic and positive attitude was amazing.

Whilst we are working our way through the Year 10 GCSE Options, we also launched the Year 12 Options yesterday afternoon. Similar to last year, we were creative and placed all subjects carried out at A Level - academic and applied - as digital visuals/audios on the Website. Closing date is next Wednesday 2 March. It is early days but you do need to be thinking of the future at this stage. Thanks to all staff involved with the Options subjects and also Mrs Gilvary and Mrs Quinn who are managing the process. If you have any further questions, please contact the College.

Well done to Year 11 who had a great win over St Ciaran’s Ballygawley today. Year 8 worked with Year 13 in Pilates. And if you have been looking at the Facebook page, you will have seen and heard a beautiful rendition from our A Level students Cara and Laura of the Roxette classic ‘It Must Have Been Love’. Absolutely breath-taking!

Have a great weekend.
