17/12/18 – Bagpipes @ Morning Assembly 
 
Pupils and staff enjoyed a visit from Mr Ian Burrows to our morning assembly today. Ian, who is the Project Manager of The Royal Scottish Pipe Band Association Branch in Northern Ireland, delivered a presentation about his passion for bagpipes and showed photographs and video clips of the many places in the world that he has performed. Ian also played a few tunes on both the pipes and the tin whistle before giving pupils the opportunity to have a try for themselves. 
 
Many thanks to Ian – the pupils and staff clearly enjoyed his visit.

04/12/18 – Ulster Rugby Trip 
 
Our Under 14 Rugby team performed very well as they participated in a Blitz Tournament against other local schools at Armagh Rugby Club last Thursday. As a rewards for their efforts, they then travelled with pupils from St. Joseph’s HS Crossmaglen and St. Paul’s HS Bessbrook to the Kingspan Stadium in Belfast on Saturday afternoon to watch the Ulster v Cardiff Blues match. 
 
This trip was funded by Peaceful Future (South Armagh) with the boys also getting an unexpected opportunity after the game to meet the players and view parts of the stadium. A big thank you to Mr Watson for providing supervision.

Year 12 pupils participated in the annual Interview Skills Day on Friday 30 November.
