Sports Day Thursday 18th June 2015 – Templemore Sports Complex
On Sports Day 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 sharp. 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 Templemore 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 Sports Complex and back to school by another bus. Buses will run as normal from the school at 3.30pm for these students.
This year we will have a Rugby World Cup themed sports day, where every class will be allocated one of five countries that they will compete for and support on the day. This is in recognition of England hosting the Rugby World Cup, 2015 and should 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 will be 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 (soon, the school website will have 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.
Thank you for your ongoing support.

Year 10 Cultural Trip to Spain
Forty one Year 10 pupils returned on 16 June after a memorable 4 day trip to Barcelona. Some of the highlights of the tripincluded a guided tour of the historic part of the city, a visit to FC Barcelona’s Nou Camp stadium, a tour of the renowned aquarium, and a magical day spent in PortAventura, one of Europe’s most exciting theme parks. For the five leaders who accompanied the pupils on the trip, the highlight was the great camaraderie and exemplary behaviour of the group, not to mention the pupils’ energetic singing on the bus tours! We thank their families for their support and congratulate the pupils for making this a truly enriching experience.
Year 10 Stormont Trip
Our Year 10 pupils recently travelled to Stormont as part of their Democracy and Active Participation Programme for Learning for Life and Work. They took a tour of parliament buildings which included a visit to the Assembly Chamber. Pupils also participated in a workshop whereby they took part in a mock election. The pupils met with local MLA’s and had a question and answer session. The visit greatly enhanced their study of Democracy in Action and enabled pupils to see Democracy in Action at a regional level.

Past Pupil Winner of Prestigious Science Communication Competition
Congratulations to past pupil Emer Maguire who has been crowned the winner of the science communication competition, FameLab UK.
Emer Maguire who left us in 2010 took home the title in London on April 22 with a winning talk on the science of love. Emer is a Clinical Anatomy Master’s Student at Queen’s University Belfast.
She becomes the second female winner in the competition’s ten-year history.
Hailing from Strabane, the science star beat off stiff competition from nine other UK finalists, who had made it through from one of 20 regional heats, including the Northern Ireland FameLab final back in February. This heat, which was organised by British Council Northern Ireland in conjunction with the Northern Ireland Science Festival and Cheltenham Festival, saw Emer talk about the science of kissing and why we smooch.
She went home with £1750 to further her career in science communication and will also move on to the FameLab International Final at The Times Cheltenham Science Festival in June. Here she will compete with scientists from 27 countries around the world to be crowned overall FameLab champion.
