We are delighted to tell you that Vincent Havlin in Year 10 is now through to the semi- finals of BBC Northern Ireland School Soloist of the Year 2022!

The BBC received a remarkable number of entries from both primary and post-primary schools in Northern Ireland, so to be shortlisted is a testament to the high standard of singing from Vincent.

Well done to all our pupils who this week competed in the District A Cross Country Schools Championships at Delamont Country Park. Aodhan finished 4th, Ben 6th, Libbie 14th and Eimear 15th, meaning they have qualified for the Ulster Cross Country Schools Championships which takes place in 3 weeks' time.

Libbie, Eimear, Aodhan and Ben all represented the College at the Ulster Cross Country Schools Championships today at Mallusk, having qualified for this event a few weeks ago when they competed at the District Championships. 

There were more than 100 runners in each section from schools across Ulster. Libbie came 59th, Eimear placed 32nd, while Aodhan and Ben both finished 15th in their races meaning they have qualified for the All-Ireland Cross Country Schools Championships in March! This is a fantastic achievement!
