Habitat for Humanity visit Year 10 RE

Today Pete from Habitat Northern Ireland came in to speak to some of our Year 10 pupils about their charity work, both locally and globally. The Year 10s have already started their OCN course for R.E, and as part of that they have to complete a research project on a chosen charity, it was fantastic hearing first-hand about the work that one of our local charities do, and the impact they are having around the globe!

Stand By Me visit Adrenaline

Johnny Farrell from Stand by Me came to SU today to talk about their work with young people from very poor countries. This made us appreciate everything we have and think about those who have very little. Johnny will be back at SU next week – All staff and pupils are welcome to come. There will be some challenges and prizes!

World Aids Day 2018 Activities

As part of Learning for Life and Work, our students were doing an HIV/AIDs awareness day to correspond with World AIDs Day (1st December).  In Geography they were mapping out countries with the highest incidence of AIDs, in Maths they were analysing AIDs data, in Science they were looking at the biology of a virus, in English they were looking at how the media portrayed  AIDs and many other activities were going on across the school.  We had a display outside the school with 36 red balloons, each representing one million people affected with HIV/AIDs.

Christmas Experience – fun for 450 Primary 7 Pupils at Glengormley High School

On Friday Glengormley High School was privileged to welcome 450 amazing pupils from our local area to sample life in ‘big school’. The GHS staff went above and beyond to provide a high school experience to help prepare the P7 children for the transition in September. Pupils sampled lessons across every subject area including a focus on robotics, baking shortbread, Photoshop, screen printing, trampoline tuition and getting creative in the ICT, Technology and Science labs.

Year 11 Anti-Social Behaviour Seminar

Today Year 11 boys were at an anti-social behaviour seminar organised by the Police&Community Safety partnership. It was based on a drama that used a lot of humour to highlight serious issues facing our young people today. It was a super event that had all of our pupils engaged and they thoroughly enjoyed the Q and A session.
