Ski Trip week

As a large number of you are away on the ski trip the week of 6th of February Ms Grant has asked that the remaining students look for work experience or extend their Wednesday work experience to include Tuesday, Thursday and Friday of that week.

This is to try and alleviate for the large number of teachers who will be accompanying the students on the trip and is an opportunity for students who wish to organise a week long work experience or work shadow in a career they may wish to pursue in the future. Please see Ms McGonagle if you have any questions.

Belfast overnight Trip

An overnight trip will take place on the 22nd March to Belfast. We are trying to find a hotel that will facilitate our large group of students. It looks like it will only be feasible if students are in triple rooms. Ms Mc Cafferty will be sending out a form for you to fill in detailing who will share with you. Can you please get this filled in as soon as possible.

Full details of the trip are not sorted yet but it will include a visit and detailed tour of the University of Ulster, a visit to Queens university. A trip to the Game of Thrones studio, a trip to the Boulevard shopping centre in Banbridge and whatever else we can fit in.
