Welcome

Welcome All,
In this section of the website, I will keep you updated on recent developments here in the school.
As we start Mid Term break, it is a chance to look back on what has been a busy few weeks since we returned in early January.
It is now an extremely busy time in school— our 6th years and 3rd years have been sitting mock exams, remember that the mock examinations are a very important learning experience for our students regarding time management and how to read questions carefully as these are the two main pitfalls experienced. I hope the past two weeks have been a worthwhile experience for you all.
Our 1st years, 3rd years and Transition year students have been busy deciding on course and programmes for next year. A gentle reminder to Transition years and those going straight into 5th year that subject option forms are due back on the 27th Feb. Reminder to next year’s Transition years that your subject options forms are back on the 1st March. We wish you well in your choices and remember to rank them all fully.
Students and staff have been busy on school tours in the last few weeks as well. All our Transition years spent the week before mid-term in Carlingford Adventure Centre, taking part in activities such as kayaking, sailing, orienteering, paint ball to name but a few. Our senior Geography students and teachers from our Geography department are just back from a wonderful trip to Iceland, taking the many wonderful natural sights of Iceland. Currently there is a group of students and teachers on our annual ski trip, they are enjoying the slopes of Marilleva in Italy. I would sincerely like to thank all the teachers who give up their own time to lead and travel on all school trips and for the organisation that goes in to same. To the Parents/Guardians thank you for allowing the students to travel on these wonderful trips. I am sure memories will be created that will last a life time.
