Christopher to Represent Northern Ireland in UK National Science and Engineering competition

A former student of St Michael’s College, Christopher Lawn has been invited to represent Northern Ireland at the National Science and Engineering Competition 2016 to be held at the Big Bang: UK Young Scientists and Engineers fair at the NEC, Birmingham in March. This follows on from Christopher winning the top STEM (Science Technology, Engineering and Maths) award for Craftsmanship, for his ‘A’ level Technology and Design project; a handmade electric guitar at the Sentinus Young Innovators 2015 All-Ireland Competition in Belfast. Head of Technology and Design at St Michael’s College, Connor McBarron said, “I am delighted that Christopher’s talent, dedication and creativity had been recognise

Citizenship NI Assembly

On Wednesday 24th February 2016 the Northern Ireland Assembly Outreach team delivered a programme to all of Year 11. The boys learnt about the structures and workings of Stormont, enjoyed taking part in a mock election and had opportunity to ask questions to local politicians. On Friday 26th February a group of Year 11 boys travelled to Stormont to have first-hand experience of our Legislative Assembly. They were accompanied by Miss Nuala Corrigan and Mr John Maguire.

CC Ulster Finals

A decade after they won their first ever Ulster schools cross-country title, in what was then the minor age group, St Michael’s College brought the curtain down on ten years of excellent progress, as they captured their fifteenth provincial crown, with a dominant display by a very youthful team to take the Enniskillen school’s second senior boys title, their only previous success in the ‘blue riband’ event being in 2010. St Michael’s also took three sets of silver medals in the mini, minor and junior age groups and retained the title of top overall school in the province, but there was a sense that at least one or possibly two of those silver medals could have been turned into gold and made

Allingham Festival Winners

The Allingham Festival held its prestigious cross border Secondary Schools Poetry competition at the end of 2015. Schools from all over the North West of Ireland, Sligo, Leitrim, Donegal, Galway, competed in this highly respected annual event. It is therefore with great pride that St Michael’s College gained double success in the U15 Poetry category. The overall first place was awarded to Theo Maguire (Year 10), with his version of Death of a Naturalist and third place was awarded to Conor Owens’ comedic Early Morning …(Year 12). Both boys have recently had their medals conferred upon them.

IAAF international/UK cross-challenge

Well done to our cross-country teams who made the early morning trip in the ice to Antrim on Saturday and rounded off a busy and productive week of racing with two more team silver medals at the IAAF international/UK cross-challenge event in very cold and muddy conditions. The U13 team (Year 8/9) took silver just behind Lagan Valley AC while the U17 team (Year 12/13) also finished second to All-Ireland club U17 champions Dundrum South Dublin (DSD). This made five sets of silver medals for the week, just need an alchemist (or a bit more hard work) now to turn a few of them to gold over the next few weeks.
