The final results of Sports Day were announced in assembly this morning with medal and trophy winners presented with the rewards for their endeavours on the 'track' and in the 'field'. By all accounts this was an exceptional year for school athletics with our students achieving success at Board (NEELB), regional and UK levels.
Magherafelt High hosted the NEBSSA Netball League finals on Monday 24th March.
Similar to the victorious Year 8 netballers, the year 9 netball team have also had a very successful season, winning all their section matches to reach the finals. The team faced Ulidia Integrated (Carrickfergus) in the NEELB final and naturally the girls were a little anxious as they hadn't played them before but had reports on how good a team they were.
On Wednesday 12th March 2014, Year 13 students from Magherafelt High School, Sperrin Integrated, St Mary’s Grammar, Rainey Endowed and St Pius X College attended a training workshop for writing effective Personal Statements by understanding their competencies and selling points.
Personal Statements can make or break a student’s opportunity to gain a place on their course of choice. This workshop provided students with the tools to prepare memorable Personal Statements to give them every opportunity to gain University places.
