Congratulations to our Year 14 pupils (pictured with Mr Skelton and Mrs Kelly, Head of Careers) who have been offered places at Oxford and Cambridge universities for next year. Ben Webb and Eason Chan have been offered places at the University of Cambridge to study Anglo-Saxon, Norse and Celtic Studies and Medicine respectively, and Emma Hasson has been offered a place at the University of Oxford to study Classics. Well done to all three, we are very proud of you and wish you luck with your future studies!
Also pictured with Mr Skelton and Mrs Kelly are Darcy Winchborne and Sarah Hadden, Year 13 pupils who recently attended the Oxford University Law Open Day.
The presentation from the information evening that was held on the 5th March can be found in the ‘School Info’ section under the ‘Information Evening Presentations’ section. Or just click the link.
Our Moving Image Arts classes attended the annual Moving Image Arts Showcase (the Oscars of MIA) at the Odyssey Cinema, Belfast on Thursday 23rd November. One of our pupils, Odhran Combe had his film shortlisted in the Best AS Film category. ‘The Meal Deal’ was then screened on the biggest cinema screen in Northern Ireland to a packed house. The film was very well received by the crowd and he was awarded 2nd place.
Well done, Odhran. You can see his film in full below.
It’s time again for our yearly dander (hope the sun shines). It will take place on the afternoon of Wednesday 7th June and its purpose is to raise funds to replace some of our ageing ICT equipment. All our Year 8 – 10 pupils have a sponsorship form, it would be lovely if the whole school community could help fill them up.
The Dander this year has been sponsored by BIESTY’S BALLYMONEY. They have kindly donated a bottle of water and a piece of fruit for each pupil taking part.
Here are the payment dates for our upcoming ski trip.
Also note that each pupil going on the ski trip must have their own passport and it must at least be valid until March 2018. If your child does not yet have a passport or it will expire before March, then please renew it over the summer holidays. A copy will need to be brought into school in September.
