Week 35

Week 35 – Friday 27th May 2022

Hi everyone!

I don’t really know where this week went to but here we are again at Friday already.

Primary 7 pupils received their letters re school placement for September last Saturday – 191 young people in total to be admitted to HTC, and it has been quite busy this week as additional pupils continue to be selected for the College. It is reassuring to have such large numbers and demonstrates community faith in our College. We endeavour to ensure your child will achieve to the best of their ability and enjoy a wonderful experience in the College. We are so looking forward to meeting our new Year 8 pupils and welcoming them to our school community. If you have any questions at all, please do not hesitate to contact us.

The Board of Governors have worked hard this week as they have been involved in new staff interviews to ensure the best teachers are employed for September. Welcome to those appointed – you will thoroughly enjoy your time in HTC.

The College is delighted that EA and DE have approved provision for Specialist Learning with Autism, in the College as of September. The provision will provide great interactive learning, fun and enjoyment to a small number of pupils who require intensive support. A very exciting new venture for the College.

The Agriculture Club have worked extremely hard all year and are now preparing to auction Blue Belle to raise more funds to kickstart more initiatives on the ground next year. Learning everywhere – including down on the farm!

On the Sporting front, congratulations to Year 12 boys, Conor, Ferdia and Odhran who played on the Tyrone Minor Hurling Team but lost out to Wicklow in the semi-final of the Corn Tomas O’Hogain U-17 Celtic Challenge Cup last weekend. A great achievement boys!

And we forward best wishes also to HTC players Conan, Michael, Mark and Conor who play on the Tyrone Minors against Derry in the Ulster Championship in Clones on Sunday.

And there is another big match on Sunday. Derry are playing Donegal in the Ulster Senior Football Final on Sunday. Who did they beat along the way to get here? Tyrone? Monaghan? It’s all great craic and may the best team win – Derry of course!

Enjoy your weekend
