Yesterday, senior pupils had the pleasure of meeting one of Northern Ireland’s most successful actors, Dr James Nesbitt, who visited school on behalf of the Ulster University, along with Professor Rafaella Folli, Provost of the Jordanstown/Belfast Campus. Pupils engaged enthusiastically in a question and answer session with Dr Nesbitt, learning about his life and career and gaining valuable insight into the world of acting. We very much appreciate Dr Nesbitt giving up his time to inspire our budding actors and actresses! What a wonderful role model for our students!
Our thanks to Dr Quinn and students from the faculty of Engineering who accompanied Dr Nesbitt and delivered presentations on studying Engineering at Ulster. We were particularly pleased to welcome back one of our past pupils, Andrew Martin who shared his experiences as a student of Renewable Energy Engineering.
Thanks also to Dr Malachy O’Neill, Provost of Magee Campus, for making the visit possible.
Year 9E met with 75 other pupils from St Patrick’s and St Bridget’s, St Joseph’s and Oakgrove as part of their Shared Education project. This was Day 1 at Carrowmena where they had a chance to meet the other pupils they will be working with over the next few weeks. The project hasbeen funded by the European Union’s “PEACE IV Programme”, and the programme looks at building resilience, achievement, self-esteem and supporting mental health.
Recently, Year 8 pupils entered Young Writers' Let It Snow competition and, once again, have been selected for publication in a special anthology.
'Let It Snow - Frosty Delights' will be published on 31st May and will be archived in the British Library, providing a lasting record of the pupils' achievement.
