Week 29 – Friday 8th April 2022
KS3 pupils reached the end of Term 2 today and in the course of the week, they partied and received a wrath of awards for full attendance, meeting personal targets, positive achievements, Form pupil of the month and so on. A great list of rewards for our young pupils. Well done everyone!
Selected Year 12 pupils had an enjoyable visit to Terex to learn about Engineering and Manufacturing. A fantastic visit.
Year 12 also engaged in a Shared Education Programme with Cookstown High School on Tuesday for Maths Revision and Exam Technique. Such a great opportunity provided by conscientious teachers from both schools.
We continue to see the impact of Covid, perhaps moreso now, on our students. We were delighted to welcome Action Mental Health to the College to speak with Year 10 students. The statistics for adults showing signs of a mental illness is quite scary, so lets approach this now and help to build resilience and well-being in our young people. No matter who we are – self-care is crucial.
The highlight this week was ‘An evening with SAM’ in the Glenavon Hotel on Wednesday night. Piped-in, in style, by Year 14 student Shea Toner, the Sam Maguire Cup proudly took pride of place at centre stage for a great night’s craic, banter and conversation with a number of football celebrities!!! An entertaining evening was had for sure. The highlight of the night was none other than the auction of ’They said we wouldn’t’ painting of Master Mc Geary on the field. A huge thanks to Mr Canavan and his Team via the HTC Foundation Board for an entertaining evening and in raising funds for the Capital Build. Watch this space!!
Have a great weekend and look after yourselves.
