GCSE History

Our GCSE History students experienced a very enjoyable and educational Saturday afternoon in Derry. They visited the Siege Museum and the Museum of Free Derry to support and enhance their understanding of our troubled past. The excursion offered a balanced education of past conflicts and also focused on the importance of reconciliation. A fantastic opportunity for our young people!

Big Clean Up!

A big thank you to all the pupils and teachers who took part in Tidy Randalstown’s ‘Big Clean Up!’ Great to see our volunteers helping out in our local community.

Community Education

It was such a delight for Mrs Kelly to welcome Mount St .Michael's P3 pupils to our Home Economics Department yesterday. They came to make chocolate truffles and as it was World Book Day they came dressed as characters from their favourite books. The children had a fabulous morning and went home happy with their truffles in hand. The children had fabulous day learning and exploring in a new environment and these Collaborations are crucial to our Collective approach to community Education.

World Book Day

The College celebrated the 20th Annual World Book Day on Thursday 7th March with several literature-related activities, including reading and book quizzes. Most keenly contested was certainly the Year 12 “ Guess the Book “ Challenge. Both students and teachers were delighted to get involved in this important event. It gave everyone an excellent opportunity take time to read and reflect on the value of books and literature.

Year 12 Careers Talk

On Monday 4th March Year 12 pupils from St. Benedict's College were given an informative careers talk from the Belfast Met. The talk gave students an insight into the courses and facilities that the Belfast Met has to offer. The presentation was delivered by Belfast Met representative Aimee McWilliams and provided Year 12's with plenty of food for thought regarding their future career pathways.

Tasty Careers

Yesterday our Year 10s had a visit from Geoff Lambe of Tasty Careers. Geoff, a previous employee in Moy Park, highlighted the variety of careers available in the Agri-Food Industry. This presentation is one of a variety of information sessions that are currently being delivered to Year 10. All are designed to support our students as they choose the subjects they will study as they move from KS3 to GCSE.
