Carol Service 2014

The Carol Service last night was absolutely stunning! The service could not get any better with choir, orchestra, instrumental pieces and readings all delivered by our gifted and talented students. Mr McFadden spoke poignantly about the school and the message of hope in relation to our integrated ethos. We would like to thank all the many staff who made last night possible, and also extend our huge appreciation to Knock Presbyterian for hosting us so kindly.

Nicholas Speaks At Keeping Northern Ireland Beautiful Jubilee

Last Thursday I attended Keep Northern Ireland Beautiful’s jubilee event at Stormont, along with Patrick Beatty and Miss Wightman, and many famous faces there including Anna Lo and David Meade. While visiting the event I had to act as the 2028 Northern Ireland Environment Minister which was really fun! The main focus of my speech was about how I had been made redundant, since my job was no longer required – the citizens of Northern Ireland now maintaining the environment together with “Keep Northern Ireland Beautiful”, along with the many successes and benefits we had made as a government toward the Northern Ireland environment.

Keep Northern Ireland Beautiful can trace its origins back 60 years to 1954 when it was established by the Federation of Women’s Institutes from the beginnings of an anti-litter campaign. In 2000 TIDY Northern Ireland became an independent charity and this year they have rebranded themselves with the new name “Keep Northern Ireland Beautiful”. It was a fantastic day!
