Year 11 students celebrate their Key Stage 3 successes

Students in Year 11 at St Paul’s High School, Bessbrook, attended a special prizegiving ceremony on 9 October 2012, celebrating their success as a year group in their first three years at the school.  The Key Stage 3 Prizegiving is an annual recognition of achievements and successes of the outgoing year group, and Head of Year 11, Mr Brendan McArdle, praised his students for their commitment to hard work, both academically, and in other fields such as music, drama and sport.

Principal of St Paul’s High School, Mr Oliver Mooney, expressed his admiration of the students of Year 11 on their successful first three years in the school, and asked them to commit themselves to continue this hard work and endeavour as they prepare for GCSE examinations and beyond in the next few years.
