Dr James Nesbitt

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.
