A large crowd was in attendance to hear guest speaker Mr Lindsay Burke (Burkes of Cornascriebe) share his experiences of education and the agricultural industry with pupils, parents and staff.
Principal Neil Megaw publicly announced that “88.5% of pupils achieved 5 GCSE grades at A*-C while a Newtownhamilton High School record of 80.8% achieved 5 GCSE grades at A*-C when the all-important GCSE English and GCSE Maths grades were included”.
The recipient for the G Mullan Cup for Academic Achievement was presented to Amy Flanagan while Emma Watt collected the McNiece Cup for the Best All Round Pupil on the Vocational Enhancement Programme.
Special mention must also go to the choir and musicians who performed excellently under the guidance of Mrs Qua, Mrs Laverty and Mr Braiden (EA Music Service) and also to the joint effort of canteen staff and School Association Members for providing supper.
