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.
