Week 33

Week 33 – Friday 21st May 2021


Hello there!


‘Ne’er cast a clout ‘til May be out’ – how true this is for the weather this week – a complete mix of seasons each day and it’s still bitterly cold in the evening.


But the work continued in the classroom – days when the children were glad to be inside. Year 12 are almost finished CCEA assessments and staff are still available if any pupil needs to complete additional work for Grade evidence. CCEA ‘A’ Level Grades were submitted today – so that is it for Year 14. You have done your best, now sit back, relax and look forward to your next exciting chapter - be that University, Further Education or Employment. Don’t forget – we’ll see you on 3rd June for your Farewell Party. Submission dates for English Exam boards are 18th June.


Competitions within the Dr Long Cup started this week and Year 8 boys were really excited. This was their first time with in-year matches – all is looking good for success in subsequent years ahead.


A quiet and productive week. Years 8 – 11 are preparing for internal assessments in June, but preparations are also underway for September. DENI have provided information on Summer Schemes so we hope to bring news about these in the not too distant future.


Enjoy your weekend – it disappears very quickly!
