Nearly 100 Year 10 pupils completed their Duke of Edinburgh Bronze expeditions in the Mournes this month. The weather was mixed, but the pupils worked really well together in their teams to get through and had lots of fun!
The Art Department would like to thank everyone who came to support the end of year exhibition on Thursday 13th June 2019.
It was a great way to celebrate the diverse and innovative creativity of our talented students.
Well done to everyone involved.
On Friday 3rd April, Georgia Hussey (Y10) spoke at a supporters conference for the Royal National Institute of Blind People (RNIB). The event was held in Belfast Castle.
Georgia highlighted the importance of support provided by the RNIB and the necessity for funding services. She gave a personal account of her journey since a diagnosis of albinism at 10 weeks old and being registered blind at 3 years old.
Georgia’s support from the RNIB has helped her become the independent young lady she is. Georgia is now planning to volunteer for RNIB becoming a mentor for younger children.
On a glorious sunny evening one hundred and twenty four 'Old Girls' gathered in the beautiful pastoral surroundings of Malone Golf Club for their Annual Dinner.
A warm welcome with a refreshing drink, a wonderful meal and a few short speeches made it a memorable evening. For many there was a special reason as they celebrated anniversaries for 25,30,40 and 50 years since leaving Victoria. For each of these groups there were organisers who mustered their contemporaries and it is the hope of the Committee that this will happen for the dinner on 8th May 2020. Once dinner was finished the room resounded to the happy chatter of old and new friends before reluctant farewells were made and promises to meet again next year.
