Week 25

Week 25 – Friday 11th March 2022

Hello Everyone

Another week over already – where is the time going to?

Year 14 were in their element this week as they prepared for their Formal which occurred last night in the Greenvale Hotel. Everyone looked stunning and had a very enjoyable evening. A pre-reception was held in the College for parents with an opportunity for photographs, then onto the Greenvale Hotel for a lovely meal and Awards Ceremony. Well done to the Formal Committee – Kerrie, Darcy, Ella Rose, Cara, Blaine and Shea - you did yourselves proud. Well done.

We have been very busy this week collecting a range of items to assist and support the people of Ukraine who are being driven from their country due to the Russian invasion. It is devastating to watch. Our community are so generous and with a Team effort, there are boxes after boxes ready to be transported to Ukraine next week. Final date for packing is next Wednesday so if you have any remaining items, please deliver them to school asap.

A fact-finding visit to Eikon Centre, Lisburn, enabled Year 13 students to interact with and gather information on a range of universities and suitable courses for their future pathway. A brilliant opportunity.

I am glad to note that the number of Covid related absences amongst pupils and staff has well reduced this week. This has enabled Year Group Assemblies to recommence – an area of school life we have really missed.

The Year 8 ‘Secret Seven’ continue to be nominated each week and there have been very worthy winners over the past couple of weeks.

But that’s all for now folks.

Look after yourselves and have a lovely weekend.
