VictoriaCollege-400x300_1.jpg

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!!

Victoria College Come Together to Celebrate Christmas

The annual Carol Service took place on Friday 14th December in Fisherwick Presbyterian Church. Pupils and staff worked very hard in the run up to Christmas.

The evening commenced with the College orchestra playing a rousing rendition of ‘Russian Dance’ from Tchaikovsky’s Nutcracker. All of the College choirs including the Prepatory Choir, Junior Choir, Junior Chamber Choir, Senior Choir, Senior Chamber Choir and Staff Choir performed to a very high standard.

A particular word of thanks should go to Kirsten Matthews and Hannah-Rose Glover  in Year 14 who both sang beautiful solo parts.

Thank you!!

Dear parents

A huge thank you to everyone who supported the Christmas Craft Fair on Saturday and made the event truly special and festive once again. We are still working on the final total raised and while we are busy counting the takings, we wish to extend our sincere thanks to everyone who made the fair a hugely successful Christmas shopping experience. From the artisan crafters in the main assembly hall through to our exciting Tombola stall which never disappoints and of course our amazing pupils with their craft stalls who delivered and thrilled our shoppers with everything from plants to pom-pom decorations and hot chocolate candy sticks, it was a unique and exciting event.  The canteen was alive with Christmas music and atmosphere, with visitors taking the opportunity to enjoy a warming bowl of homemade soup, a festive snack and a chat with family and friends. The cherry on the top of our Christmas cake was when The Welcome Organisation, supporting people who are homeless, accepted unsold hot and cold food to serve at the hostel...a very fitting end to a truly special day.

We would ask you this week to support the Christmas fundraising effort by purchasing tickets for the Christmas Prize draw which are on sale all of this week. Pupils from the Junior school were given books of tickets to bring home last week and those in Senior school will be given tickets today. We are urging all parents to please support the school by purchasing tickets to win one of our fabulous prizes. If you wish to purchase more tickets than those sent home, please contact Mrs Crockard in the Richmond office. Please return tickets, sold and unsold, and the correct money by this Friday 14th December. The draw will take place during the last week of term and all winners notified immediately. 

Good luck, huge thanks for your support and a very merry Christmas from the APT

Hector McDonnell inspires creativity at the RUA exhibition

On Wednesday 5th December the A2 Art and Design students attended the RUA exhibition at the Ulster Museum. 

The students had the opportunity to meet the esteemed artist Hector McDonnell and ask him questions about his work ‘Demonstration in Stuttgart Station’  currently exhibited at the RUA.  Hector McDonnell kindly shared stories about his work and advice on the many ways the students could approach their own practise. 

The students thoroughly enjoyed this experience and were inspired by his words to begin working on their own works of art.
