Yr8 STEM club members finished the term with a site visit to Farran’s Construction site at the South wing of Altnagelvin Hospital- soon to be open in 2019. They had the opportunity not only to see the new wards near completion but also a tour of the ‘underworld’ basements gave pupils an insight into the electrical installations, steam heating systems and water supplies all part of the process when managing this build. An enthusiastic and very interested group of Yr8 students also quizzed the female structural engineer about her own school experiences and career path into this line of work.
Congratulations to our Year 9 poets who are celebrating the publication of their poems in The Poetry Games, a schools’ poetry anthology.
Well done, Young Writers
Congratulations to Year 13 and 14 pupils Hollie, Lindsay, Sarah and Conall who participated in the HSBC/British Council Mandarin Speaking Competition 2018 at The Mac Theatre in Belfast on Tuesday 27th November. Although these pupils have only been learning Mandarin since the beginning of their Lower Sixth year, they performed very well against more experienced pupils from other schools in the north-west.
Thanks to the pupils and Honge for all their hard work and many hours of preparation over the past few weeks. Well done!
