Week 20

   Week 20 – Friday 26th January 2018

It was back to normality this week with teaching and learning, which regrettably was hindered last week due to the very poor weather.  And we also had an opportunity to reflect on our Taster Days and Open Evening with suggestions for next year coming forward already – everyone’s views are always important to us.

 

A very lucky group of Year 11 and Year 12 students studying GCSE English Literature along with our counterparts from Cookstown High School, enjoyed a wonderful performance of ‘Blood Brothers’ in the Grand Opera House yesterday.  Everyone thoroughly enjoyed the performance and a huge thanks to all staff for organising this valuable trip.

A number of pupils in Year 10 also participated in the Gael-Linn Quiz today as well as some Year 8 pupils presenting at the ‘Young Reporter’s for the Environment’ Workshop in Mid-Ulster Council – well done everyone!.

 

As you know, the College endeavours to engage in many fund raising initiatives.  One particular charity, dear to us all, is that of Marie Curie Cancer Care and yesterday we donated £1250 to the Charity via the sons of the late Mary Kelly.  This money was raised form the Christmas Jumper Day and Christmas raffle so we are very appreciative of the efforts of both staff and pupils alike.

 

Our theme this week is that of ‘Managing Your Stress’ and very appropriate too especially for our Exam Year Groups.  Whilst we are near the end of January, coursework deadlines will be looming, with practicals, orals and controlled assessments finishing.  The Written exams will probably commence mid-May so it is important to organise your time, think positive, revise well and look after yourself.

 

Indeed, Year 12 were carrying out their GCSE Home Economics Practicals this week – some very mouth watering dishes were created with a lovely aroma along the corridor – well done boys and girls. 

 

The opposite of this was Year 11 receiving their vaccinations – poor souls, but they have survived.

 

A point of information - Sunday coming welcomes the beginning of Catholic Schools Week with the theme Catholic Schools: Called to be a Family of Families.      

 

Have a good weekend
