Week 25

Thursday 16th March 2023


Hi there


A slightly shorter week as we prepare to celebrate our patron saint, St Patrick.  There have been a number of activities running in the College eg Seachtain naGaeilge, Irish Traditional Music, and so on but the highlight was the Year 8 ceilitoday.  Pupils had lots of fun and craic - learning new dances - brought back so many happy memories!  A huge thanks to Mrs Mc Flynn and Miss Rafferty for organising all of the activities this week, and to Miss Mc Curry, Mr Mc Gartland and our Senior Music Students in providing the music and entertainment at the ceili. Lots of opportunities to celebrate our Irish culture.


So proud of our Year 8 Nurture pupils and staff who raised over £440 via a Bake Sale for The Base @ Tobin in Moortown for their new purpose built sensory room.  We know the value of a sensory room here in school, so it was only fitting that our pupils wanted to help others to enjoy the same.  Well done everyone!


Congratulations to Loeva, Ana, Estiven, Gil, Jorfran, Gio, Sonzinho and Nicolas who made their Confirmation on Sunday. Such a lovely service and occasion.


We played host to Sentinus on Tuesday and a number of local Primary schools, who were involved in the K’nex Challenge. The Primary pupils made each task look so easy!.  Well done everyone - you were certainly innovative and creative.


We were delighted to welcome students from Cookstown High School for a Fine Art Workshop as part of the Shared Education Programme. A great day was had by all, learning fundamental skills needed to make great art.  


Congratulations to the Year 9 Girls Netball Team who secured 3rd place in the EA–S Cross Community Netball tournament.  Well done everyone – superb!


It was the turn of Year 11 parents/guardians to learn about the progress of their child yesterday afternoon.  All meetings were very positive during Year 1 of GCSE.  These pupils are preparing for modular exams in May/June so there is a lot of work to be completed – but we are very confident they will work hard and achieve well.


We were delighted to welcome parents/guardians, Primary Principals, Board of Governors, staff, EA and local representatives to the official opening of the Learning Support Centre.  The Centre opened in September 2022 with Year 8.  It is a delight to have these youngpupils in our school – they are inclusive, they are learning with their peers, they are making great progress, they know nearly every pupil in the school and they leave happy every day.  We are so proud of 8PBU and the Staff who work with them on a daily basis.


Holy Trinity College is closed to pupils on Friday 18th and Monday 20th for an extended St. Patrick’s weekend.





Wishing you all a lovely relaxing and safe St Patrick’s Weekend and Mother’s Day on Sunday.
