Sports Day Thursday 19th June 2014 - Templemore Sports Complex
Students who come to school by car should be dropped off at Templemore Sports Complex for registration at 9.05am and be collected from there at 2.45pm. Students who walk to school should come to school as usual for 8.45am where transport will be provided to and from the school to the sports complex. Students who get a bus to school each morning will be picked up at their usual bus stop and brought directly to school where they will be transported to Templemore Sports Complex and back to school by another bus. Buses will run as normal from the school at 3.30 for these students.
This year we will have a Commonwealth games themed sports day, where every class will be allocated one of five countries that they will compete for and support on the day. This will run to support Glasgow 2014 and also to create a fun and exciting atmosphere on the day.
Students must come to school in tracksuits and will compete in their PE kit however, they have been encouraged to wear a t-shirt, or an accessory that identifies the country they are representing. Their PE shorts and socks must be worn to compete. Students should have some money with them. There will be a hot food stall, refreshments and fun activities available on the day (see the school website and attached pricelist for a full list of refreshments, activities and prices).
As we are making use of a public facility, we expect the very highest standards of co-operation and behaviour from all our students throughout the day. All parents/guardians are welcome to attend our school Sports Day where a range of sporting activities and fun events will be available. Parking is available at Templemore Sports Complex.
Please be reminded that the day will end at approx 2.30-45pm, as we had a few students waiting to be collected after 3.30pm last year.

Year 10 FÃ¡inne Airgid
Congratulations to those pupils in 10D and 10E who were presented with the Fáinne Airgid Irish award recently. The pupils had to complete an oral assessment with Erin Kelly, the Irish language assistant, to confirm that they had achieved the appropriate level of proficiency for the award. The pupils worked extremely hard in preparation for the award and should be proud of their achievement.

Congratulations to the pupils in 8D and 8E who achieved the Cúpla Focal award in Irish recently. Pupils completed an oral assessment with an external examiner, Conchúr Mac Diarmada, who was very impressed with the level of proficiency the pupils displayed. The pupils prepared themselves fully for the assessment and should be delighted with their accomplishment.
Year 11 Learning for Life and Work Programme
On Monday 16th and Tuesday 17th June, Year 11 pupils participated in a range of activities relating to their Learning for Life and Work Programme at KS4. Over the course of the two days pupils engaged in a series of workshops based on theme of Equality and Social Justice. Workshops were facilitated by; The Equality Commission, The Children's Law Centre, NICCY and NICRAS. A selection of pupils also participated in a discussion on Radio Foyle with Mark Patterson discussing issues around Refugees, as explored in school during their workshops.
Pupils also attended workshops for Employability which provided an opportunity for pupils to prepare for their future careers. Pupils were made aware of the role of the Colleges own Human Resources Department in a workshop delivered by Mrs Eilish Willis. Pupils also had workshops provided by Young Enterprise with their Learn to Earn programme and pupils met with Mrs Orla Nelis the Careers Advisor from the Careers Service of Northern.
Pupils thoroughly enjoyed all workshops, and engaged fully in all activities thus enriching their learning experiences over the course of the two days.
