On Friday 8th March April Hutchinson, Tabitha Jones and Abby Palmer from year 13 represented Victoria College at the Speaker’s event entitled “Better the balance, better the world” in Parliament Buildings, Stormont.
The event gave young women from all over the province the opportunity to meet with female MLAs before having the privilege of participating in a lively session in the Assembly Chamber chaired by Assembly Speaker Robin Newton MLA.
Our Intermediate swimming team, Lily McGuire, Sasha Mckeown, Emma Montgomery and Amy Montgomery were crowned Ulster Grammar Schools’ Champions for 2019, after coming out on top from a playing strong field of 76 Grammar schools from across Ulster.
Sasha picked up 2 individual golds, Emma one gold and Lily a silver. The team went on to take gold in both the medley and freestyle relays.
Preparations are well underway for the Victoria College Spring Concert which is taking place this year on the 28th March. Following on from last year’s success the concert will once again be held in the setting of the prestigious Ulster Hall and feature the College orchestra and choirs. This year we are looking forward to ‘tripping the light fantastic’ with a selection of music from both Mary Poppins films. Those of you who prefer to ‘rock it out’ will also enjoy a selection of music by Queen.
It is a wonderful opportunity for our pupils to showcase their talents in such a venue and we hope to continue this tradition moving forward. At this stage we ask you to support the College by encouraging friends, neighbours and family members to purchase tickets for what is certain to be an unforgettable evening.
Tickets are priced at £12 (£8 concessions) and are available at the Ulster Hall box office or online.
See you there!!
