Week 34

Week 34 – Friday 20th May 2022

Hello there!

There has been numerous GCSE and A Level Exams this week for Years 11 – 14, so please keep all students in your thoughts and prayers and with placing their trust in God, it is over to them to do their very best in their Exams. Good luck everyone! Our younger pupils are also preparing for their internal June exams - you will all be fab!!

It was great to celebrate the wonderful news of Keva and Erica who both achieved Distinction in Grade 1 Acoustic Guitar - so much success in our Music Department and well done Girls!

Not to be outdone, Year 9/10 Hurling Team had great participation in a recent Schools blitz reaching the Final but narrowly beaten by St Patrick’s Academy. Hard luck boys but you played extremely well.

Good luck to Ceara Mae, Kayleigh and Ella who will represent Tyrone in the All Ireland LGFA U14 Final on Sunday. Do your very best Girls – we are all supporting you. And the same to the U16 Girls who play against Cavan in the Ulster final against Cavan.

The English Department were so proud of their Dragon’s Den Teams and their fabulous presentations – entrepreneurs in the making.

Isn’t it great to return to the Grand Opera House and enjoy performances of plays and musicals. This definitely happened today with GCSE Drama students, paired readers and some of our great Year 8 pupils, who thoroughly enjoyed ‘Gangsta Granny’. I am so jealous that they went without me!

Today we said Goodbye to Conor Mallon, our IT Technician of 7 years. Conor is moving on to pastures new but as a past pupil and staff member, we hope he will have many memories of life in HTC. Best wishes Conor for the future.

Finally, Good Luck to all Primary 7 pupils as you receive notification of your Post Primary School tomorrow morning (Saturday) – I hope you get the school of your choice!

Have a lovely weekend
