Saint Catherine’s College Students have a Winning Streak!

Term 2 saw competition success in Coding, Sport, Poetry, Business Studies, Cookery & the Bar Council.

Nearly a thousand pupils from across Northern Ireland filled the Ulster Hall to listen to the students who participated in “Poetry in Motion Schools 2018”. Eight of our pupils were published in the anthology while Rhiannon Reilly was the overall winner in Northern Ireland and was presented with the Seamus Heaney Award for Achievement.  

Well done to our Team of Year 9 students came second in the N.I. Mock Bar Trial competition.  This was a fantastic achievement given the winning team had already participated four times in previous years.  

Congratulations also to our two Super Chefs, Lucia & Aoife, who reached the final in the Mount Charles Big School Cook Off 2018, held in Belfast Met, Titanic Quarter.

St Catherine’s College is celebrating outstanding success in the sports’ field this year with no less than 3 Ulster Titles in Senior C Football, Under 16 B Football and Camogie!

The term ended with the annual candle-lit Prayer Service in St Patrick’s Cathedral, Armagh. The programme featured music, singing and reflections inspired by the Taizé tradition.

An amazing eight KS3 pupils from St Catherine's College had their poems published in the 'Poetry in Motion' anthology: l/r: Cara McCoubrey, Rhiannon Reilly (individual winner of the Seamus Heaney Award for Achievement), Clara McConville, Megan Haughian, Megan Cairns, Ellie McArdle, Anna Rose Tennyson and Helen McGrane. The girls are pictured here with their English Teacher, Miss K Nesbitt.

Fifteen St. Catherine’s College students participated in the Citizenship Foundation’s Mock Trial Competition in Antrim Magistrates’ Court on Saturday 10th March. Students took on the roles of Prosecuting barristers, Defence barristers, defendants, witnesses, legal advisers and Magistrate judges, competing against other schools from the North of Ireland.

Finalists in The Big School Cook Off 2018 held at Belfast Met, Titanic Quarter, were Super Chefs Lucia & Aoife who represented St Catherine’s College so well.

Our French Exchange group 2018 thoroughly enjoyed their stay in Armagh – they were stranded here for an extra 4 days due to a French Air Traffic Controllers’ strike! Our sincere thanks to our 20 Host families who entertained our young visitors from Orléans so well for 12 days! The French students now look forward to hosting our students in lycée St Paul, in October.
