Upon finding out the boys reached the semi-final of the challenge it was all systems go thinking of how to put their ideas forward to present on a stand.  Many drafts and lunchtimes later ideas started to come together for posters highlighting their theme. To help pay for the posters some fundraising was needed, four teachers very kindly offered entertainment at lunch in the form of a bake off – it was hilarious and well attended by pupils and staff, raising a massive £145.00!!  We also accepted donations from McCurdys Potatoes, Chestnutt Animal Feeds a big thanks to you both. Fane Valley donated some props for the stand and impact printing offered a discount for the very attractive posters – again, thank you!

This has been a fantastic journey for all four boys – so far! We wait in anticipation for 3rd April when the results of 2019 ABP Angus Youth Challenge will be released. Join us in wishing the boys well and they have been amazing to get to this stage – well done and congratulations!

Congratulations to the Choir for winning the ‘Grammar and Secondary Schools Class’ at the Portstewart Festival.

 

This year we had not one, but two top scoring teams in the UK-wide CyberCenturion V competition. CyberCenturion is a contest that requires teams to identify computer security risks and to make computers as safe from threats as possible.

 

The junior team were top scorers in the Mixed 12-14 category in Northern Ireland, only narrowly missing out on the national finals by a single place.

 

 

 

 

 The senior team were the highest scoring team overall in Northern Ireland, also winning their category and defending the same title that they won last year.

 

A tremendous achievement by all concerned, with the students getting the chance to develop valuable cyber-security skills that are much in demand by potential future employers. Well done!

 

 Pupils from Ballycastle High and Cross & Passion took part in a Shared Education workshop. We had visitors from all around the world who taught us about their cultures. We took part in talks, arts and crafts, dance and drumming!
