Pupils from 10L have been working on an ‘Amazing the Space’ project with a Year 10 class from Cross and Passion College. This has involved an ice-breaker day, where the pupils met one another and set out the rationale for the project. We were also involved in a live webcast holocaust survivor talk, where Janine Webber told us of her experience during the holocaust and how she managed to survive. Our third event was a cultural day in Girdwood community centre in Belfast, led by Arts Ekta. This was an enjoyable day, where we learned about other cultures, made crafts, danced to music from Zimbabwe and sampled some cuisine from across the world.
Thank you to Young People Leading Change who ran an excellent leadership and dialogue skills programme for 25 of our Year 13 pupils. Congratulations to Hannah Le Fondre and Justine Hunter who attended a follow up leadership day in Newcastle, County Down. This was an excellent day and both girls thoroughly enjoyed their experience.
On the 22nd February 2018 at the prestigious IET Turing Lecture in Belfast City Hall, our pupils were presented with the award for the top scoring Northern Ireland team in the 2018 CyberCenturion competition. Very proud of all who took part!
On Wednesday 31st January pupils in Years 8-10 enjoyed a visit from Louisa Gibson from NICILT (the Northern Ireland Centre for Information on Language Teaching and Research). Louisa spoke to them about the many benefits of learning a language. Pupils also won a variety prizes during the French quiz.
