Week 27 – Friday 25th March 2022
The weather has been so lovely this week – it really does put everyone in good form – and our Girls and Boys are enjoying time relaxing in the sunshine over lunchtime. No-one could argue with that!
Many GCSE and A Level students had much to celebrate yesterday when they received BTEC results from the January Exam series. More success which will augur well for final results in August! Whilst congratulating our students, I also thank all staff for their dedicated teaching, support and guidance to ensure pupils achieved well.
In reflecting, it is 2 years on Wednesday past when we went into lockdown due to the Covid-19 pandemic. So many lives lost and an impact on our vulnerable, elderly and young people. Thankfully society is reopening and we have to learn to live with Covid, but we must still be careful and cautious in what we do.
The situation as well in Ukraine continues to be horrendous but we can take comfort that Noel, Benny and Mark successfully delivered 2 lorry loads of blankets, food, clothes, toys, toiletries and so on for those in need. A massive thank you to our community for their generosity and we wish the Boys a safe trip home.
Congratulations to Year 14 student, Terry Devlin who was called up to play for NI U21 International Duty and travelled to Slovakia and France this week. Fantastic opportunity for Terry – well done!
A number of students also participated in the Drumragh Integrated Charity Inter-Schools Horsejumping Show with great success from Holly, Shauna, Lucy, Katie, Aaliyah, Sophie and Aoife. Well done
Girls – you achieved really well.
‘What Autism means to me…..A celebration of the Pupil Voice’. If you don’t know the impact of Autism, you need to visit the exhibition in the Burnavon for a real insight to the creative minds of pupils with Autism - the detail they see and feel!
The Year 9 Parent Teacher Meeting was very successful yesterday evening via School Cloud. If you have any queries at all re your child’s progress, please contact the school on 028 8676 2420.
Well done to Year 11 Boys’ Team who had a successful win over St Louis, Ballymenatoday. They now progress to the Semi-Final next week. Good luck Boys!
Don’t forget, the clock ‘springs forward’ on Saturday night and it’s Mother’s Day on Sunday!
Have a great weekend.
