Hello Year 14 I have attached instructions to a new online reading resource that I hope you like. It is called getepic and it is indeed Epic! I hope you enjoy the books, quizzes and audiobooks. I'd appreciate any feedback. Take care. Mrs S

Year 14 enjoy a class reward snack in Donaghadee before going to The Commons to participate in a beach clean. The weather, food, waves and fun were all excellent.

In September the Post 16 were very kindly donated a Trike by Sinead and Mary. Sinead came to school last week so that pupils and staff could present both ladies with a much appreciated token of Thank You. The Post 16 pupils have been making good use of the trike as they participate in their cycling proficiency qualification. Thank You both so much again Sinead and Mary and we wish you both a healthy and peaceful Christmas and New Year.

Happy Christmas Abbeyfield and Wesley! The Year 14 group delivered their decorated glass jars to the Abbeyfield and Wesley residents in Donaghadee as part of their Shine Bright project. We truly hope these bring some joy and sparkle to all the residents and staff over Christmas and the winter months ahead. We are also very appreciative of the fabulous cake which we were given as a thank you from Abbeyfield and Wesley and enjoyed it as part of our Christmas Party food in class this afternoon. Mrs McBratney joined the Year 13's and 14's for a very competitive and enjoyable christmas quiz this afternoon!

Spreading Christmas Cheer around Donaghadee!


Our very thoughtful Acting Principal, Mrs Yeates came up with the idea to spread some Christmas Cheer around our local town and businesses. The Year 14's jumped at the chance to include this as part of their Community Day activities. Everyone is feeling the pressure and strain of the in out Covid Lockdown restrictions and the pupils felt this would be a fantastic way to say Thank You to our local community businesses and spread a little Christmas happiness at the same time.

The group adorned their Christmas festive headgear and, armed with Christmas cards and sweets, set off to execute the task in hand. All of the pupils confidently delivered their Christmas message to the staff and customers in the various business outlets and, in return, staff and customers were very appreciative of the thoughtfulness and effort the pupils had made. Well done to the group!

Year 14 use their iPads in class as they prepare for the world of work. They complete their work online which helps to develop their ICT skills 💻

It was a beautiful October morning and members of the public very kindly thanked us while we worked on the beach cleaning up the glass, plastic, rags and other pieces of unnatural products that are so dangerous to our sea birds and sea life.  Well Done Year 14 on your help with looking after our local community!

Travel Training in Donaghadee

Year 14 enjoyed the Bikes we were able to purchase for Post 16 with our Salvador Foundation funds. We also had a very generous donation of a Trike from two Fabulous ladies Sinead and Mary - "she" truly has found a good home and will be used often! We are extremely grateful to both the Salvador Foundation and Sinead and Mary for their support in allowing us to access this equipment. The pupils are really enjoying learning to ride the bikes and having the opportunity to develop their independent travel training life skills.
