Congratulations to Clara Cowan (13C) who received her All-Star Camogie Award at a recent banquet held in The Elk, Toomebridge . Clara’s teachers Mrs Anne Marie McKevitt & Miss Ciara Hayes attended the award ceremony and all three had a wonderful time at the event.
Congratulations also to our School Choirs, School Orchestra and Traditional Group on their outstanding successes in the various categories of competition at Newry Feis last week. These were as follows: Orchestra competition: 1st Place; Traditional Group: 2nd place; Secondary School Choir: 2nd Place: Under 16 Girls Choir:1st Place; Under 18 Girls Choir: 2nd Place. Many thanks to teachers Mrs Linda Turley and Miss Louise Bell for preparing the students for the Feis.
Well done to Alannah Geoghegan (8B) who won the Environmental Youth Speak Competition held recently in the St Patrick’s Centre, Downpatrick. Alannah presented her five-minute speech to a packed hall and beat off stiff competition from Year 9 & 10 students from other Secondary/Grammar Schools in the NMDDC area. We all look forward to Alannah presenting her winning speech at the forthcoming Junior Assembly.
A good week all around for SHS!
