Aspiring Health Professionals attend British Medical Association Event

An aspiring doctor and an aspiring Physiotherapist from Year 13 attended an event at Queens hosted by The British Medical Association (BMA) who claim they want to encourage more students from non-selective schools in Northern Ireland to become doctors.

As part of the initiative, more than 100 pupils met doctors and medical students at a BMA event in Belfast to learn more about the path to a medical career and were mentored by doctors and medical students.

MacMillan Cancer Support Coffee Morning

On Friday the 6th of October, all staff and sixth form students came together to fake or bake for McMillan Cancer Support. As well as raising money it brought everyone together and created a united atmosphere. We managed to raise a fantastic sum of £300 which will all be donated to McMillan Cancer Support.

The contribution was that substantial that Glengormley High School decided to donate the remaining treats to Martin Residential Trust.

Pictured below is the coffee morning and the Head Boy, Head Girl and Deputies presenting the careers from the trust with the donations. Well done and thank you to everyone for their generous contribution.
