Holocaust Ambassador Reception
Two of our Year 14 students – Natalie Montgomery and Erin English – participated in a province-wide trip to Auschwitz-Birkenau with the Holocaust Educational Trust last year. They trained successfully to become Holocaust Ambassadors for the Trust. The girls attended a reception recently in Stormont where they listened to a talk from Walter Kammerling, a Holocaust Survivor. Erin and Natalie will be leading assemblies this January to commemorate Holocaust Memorial Day on the 27th of that month. They will also be attending Open Night and will be available to discuss their experiences of their visit to Auschwitz-Birkenau with visiting parents and primary students.
The U18 Football team beat Castlederg High School in the Northern Plate today by 3 – 0.
Goal scorers were Calum Smith, Luke Wiley & an own goal by CHS; Karl Beggs was man of the match, producing 4-5 fantastic saves throughout the second half when the score was only 1 – 0.
The pupils were a credit to the school & all 15 played an important part; but more importantly all the pupils enjoyed the match & the experience.
Sixth Form students who had 100% attendance this year so far were rewarded with a free trip to Movie House Cinemas Glengormley. Thanks to Annette who looked after us in the Cinema.
Our Year 8 boys have been enjoying reading with our Year 14 Reading Mentors. It’s great to see our older pupils supporting our Year 8 group.
