Tracking success is a great way to start the New Year, in particular we would like to highlight our Top 5th year pupils, who performed really well in their mocks. Josh Dickson and Shannon Connolly (both from ACS) have achieved the best Apollo reports in Year 12 and their efforts have been forwarded to Mr Hayes to be entered into a draw for an “IPAD/Tablet”.
Also, congratulations to Apollo pupils Hannah McKnight, Dara Hickland, Pyper Clements and Louise Mallen on their fantastic achievement. Hannah was first and Dara was joint second in Year 10. Pyper and Louise were joint third in Year 9.
Apollo had their Christmas Party in the Youth Centre Social area and our PLG enjoyed listening to Christmas songs, playing pool, table tennis, chatting with friends as well as some festive treats, sweets and hot chocolate.
We also went up to Glengormley Methodist Church to celebrate the end of term and start of the Christmas holidays. The service was very interactive with pupils and staff having a great festive time.
Charity was the topic of the month in November as each form class in Apollo decided to help others by engaging in no less than three charitable appeals including “Children in Need”, “Blythswood Shoe Box” and a “Reverse Advent” for Age NI.
Well done to AAG who were victorious in the Apollo Halloween competition. Effort from all form classes was great and inter-form class competition resulted in a fantastic range of pumpkins and dunking for apples challenge.
Also, this month we saw several of our outstanding 6th year pupils being awarded with Prefect status. Congratulations to Graeme, Maryam, Emma, Rachel and Andrew.
We are also very proud to announce that Apollo’s very own Rachel Currie has been elected to the esteemed position of GHS Head Girl! Mrs Fox is a very proud Form Tutor!
A warm welcome back to school for our existing Apollo pupils, we hope you have had a lovely summer break and return with high aspirations for the year ahead. Well done to our returning 6th years on their exam success.
We would like to welcome our New Year 8 pupils who are transferring from a wide range of local Primary schools. We wish you all the best and a happy time at Glengormley High within in Apollo
