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.

GHS Supporting Blythswood Shoebox appeal

Pupils of Glengormley High School have completed 58 shoe boxes for the Blythswood Christmas Shoe box Appeal. This is an excellent contribution from our pupils and beats last year’s amount of 55 boxes. These presents will be taken to Romania and Pakistan and distributed within the local community in time for Christmas. Thank you to both pupils and teachers for all of their hard work.

Congratulations to all involved and to Mrs Sames for all her hard work organising this project.
