Week 28 – Friday 1st April 2022
Another month gone, as we progress towards final preparations for GCSE and A Level Exams. I really congratulate our students! The number of Girls and Boys staying after school for additional revision / exam technique is amazing. They really deserve the best grades possible.
I visited the Newcomer Club this week. It would do your heart good to see pupils of different nationalities and cultures, mixing together under the guidance of Dr Daniela, to ensure they are having some fun, food and relaxation in a range of games. Well done everyone!
On the sporting front, Year 11 lost out to St Pius in the semi-final of the League whilst the Year 8 & 9 Handball Team participated well in the Tyrone heat of the Ulster Schools Handball Final. Taking part is equally as good as winning. Year 13 & 14 students also received excellent Handball coaching skills during the week with Darragh Daly GAA Handball Development Officer. We appreciate Darragh giving his time to work with our students.
I hope you saw the mouth-watering dishes made by the Lunchtime Cookery Club led by Mrs Neeson. The Girls and Boys just love getting involved in this Club – and the best part is eating it afterwards!!
Reading for pleasure is extremely important and we believe in training Senior mentors to work with KS3 pupils to encourage this. Delighted that Mid Ulster Council recognised the ongoing work of our Paired Reading Mentors.
That’s all for now - Enjoy your weekend.
