Week 37

Week 37 – Friday 18th June 2021


Hi Everyone!


I don’t really know where this week went to but here we are again at Friday and today was our annual Sports Day for KS3 pupils. We were blessed to have such a good day weather-wise – the ice cream man was definitely needed! Lots of determination, grit and competition today in Years 8, 9 and 10 - the children will sleep well tonight! Well done everyone – and of course to the PE Department. There is so much preparation involved for Sports Day!


Many more activities were up and running this week – boys and girls’ football, hurling, agriculture club, Book club – it is great to see these activities resuming.


Primary 7 pupils received their letters re school placement for September. Our P7 Transition Website is closed at present to enable us to update it for Monday 21st June. On this date, you will be able to see pre-recorded videos of key staff, pupils and myself, as well as a new video of what it will be like in your first day in the College. Staff have also visited our partner Primary schools in order to have an overview of every new pupil transferring to the College and their great potential. If you have any questions at all, please do not hesitate to contact us.


All internal assessments are now finished and final Centre Determined Grades have been submitted to the relevant English Examination Boards today. It has been extremely busy and I can definitely say that both pupils and staff are tired. Only another week or two to go!


It was great to have many of our Year 12 students return this afternoon to collect their Hoodies via the Business Club. They are looking so well and refreshed. Good luck boys and girls in your results for August and many thanks to the Business Studies Department for this great initiative.


Enjoy your weekend


Isabel Russell
