Week 24

Week 24 – Friday 4th March 2022

Hi there

Such a great feeling to travel to and from school in brighter mornings and evenings.

We had great fun this week with our daily ‘Masked Reader’. Were you able to guess the staff member on social media? Reading is so important – it helps to improve your vocabulary, enables you to understand those difficult exam questions, and you are more likely to do better at school overall. Open that book today, curl up on the sofa and read for your pleasure!

Year 8 also embarked on their ReadOnChallenge to raise funds for Cancer Fund for Children – a very worthy cause – please support them when they knock on your door.

Home Economics were busy on Tuesday with pupils making mouth-watering pancakes. On Wednesday it was very fitting for

the school community to visit Holy Trinity Church and receive their Ashes signalling the beginning of Lent.

Generally, it has been a quiet week as all Year Groups were involved in Assessments. Pupils have been working ever so hard and I’m confident results will be very positive. Good luck everyone!

One advantage of living and working in Cookstown is access to a vast number of Engineering and Manufacturing firms. Today, the Agri- Engineering Club were privileged to visit J & B Engineering to get an insight how products are manufactured. Engineering has become a very popular subject in school both at GCSE and A Level. Working in partnership with local businesses is a huge asset for our pupils.

Enjoy your weekend.
