Year 14 Holocaust Ambassadors attend Reception

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. 

 

U18 Football Success in Northern Plate

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.

 

Discovery Support Children in Need

As part of our Children and Need activities Discovery PLG cooked up a delicious breakfast for pupils. We allowed the pupils a treat in support of charity and they were able to tuck into some yummy pancakes cooked by Chef Shearer and her other form tutors – as you can see the pupils had a lovely start to the day – a little bit of chocolate in the morning once in a while isn’t too bad!
