Primary 6 pupils from Oakgrove, Drumahoe, Lisnagelvin and Ebrington Primary Schools enjoyed a ‘Snappy Science’ event this week in our assembly hall. Yr10 mentors presented the series of practical activities enjoyed by the primary pupils throughout the morning with assistance from STEM Aware. “Can you smell like a shark?”; “ How does a lemon battery work?”; “Can you see what I see?”. These are just some of the questions that pupils considered during the morning. Click on the link HERE to view further pictures

Project Business provides a dynamic experience for Year 10 students as they take on the role of a small business for the day. In addition to gaining an insight into enterprise, pupils are given an introduction to GCSE Business Studies, prior to making their subject choices. The pupils explored a range of key business concepts through a variety of practical group-based activities,such as setting up their own bead making business. The pupils had to buy materials from their suppliers and create beaded bracelets to sell to customers. The pupils also learnt about health and safety in the work place and quality control.
We were delighted to welcome HRH The Princess Royal to officially open our fantastic new school.
Congratulations to Michael, Tegan and Emma who have successfully progressed to the regional final of the Knights of Columbanus public speaking competition. The trio maturely tackled the topic of the death penalty and perceptively answered an unseen question from the adjudicators.
