The new Year 8
25 Sept 2015
Mr. Canning presented a number of pupils with certificates achieved for success in Jetset English examinations.
Many of the pupils have arrived in this country within the past three years.
Also pictured are ESL Teachers Mr. Kennedy and Mrs. Moore.
Clounagh had a unique visitor last week. He was discovered in the Technology corridor, exhausted and unable to fly, having
a wounded back leg. Bats are a protected species, so staff from Lough Neagh Discovery Centre arrived and took him off our hands.
The incident offered a rare opportunity to photograph one of these amazing creatures up close.

Congratulations to this year's prizewinners. The photos above show the class, sports & academic prizewinners, respectively.
The school choir, along with other talented performers, provided the evening's entertainment at the annual Prize Night.
Imagine you entered the school's lift, and when you emerged at your destination, twenty minutes had inexplicably passed.
Where were you during this time, and why can't you remember? This was the premise behind the school's Film Club production
for 2015. Thanks to the dedication of the members (top photo), who worked hard on the project for many months, the story
developed into something quite elaborate and the final movie was over fifty minutes in length. The whole school was treated
to a screening in the assembly hall at the end of term.
Some Year 10 pupils were invtied to take part in a mobile science workshop organised by the Royal Navy's STEM
(Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) team. Pupils experimented with real forensic science, with the goal of narrowing down
a list of five suspects in a mock murder.

New Art & Design suite
The official opening of the G. Hampton Art & Design Suite took place on Monday 27 April 2015 when Mrs. Ruth Hampton, wife of
the late Mr. G. Hampton (Principal from 1984 to 1995), cut the ribbon after a short ceremony to mark the occasion.
The suite includes an extensive Art Room complete with full ceramic production facilities, a digital studio equipped with 20 PCs
and complimentary software. In addition, the provision of 16 iPads provides plenty of opportunity for paired and group work.
A second Art Room has been furnished with all that is required to develop screen printing techniques. The spacious entrance
hallway has ample display space for the exhibition of pupils’ work.
The new facility, under the guidance of Head of Department, Miss C. Annett, Mrs. A. McGinn and Mrs. E. Hanson has been an
immediate success story with pupils. Who knows what talent remains to be discovered in the years that lie ahead!
The recently elected Year 8 and 9 Year School Council representatives will soon be taking up their posts offering
a pupil perspective on decision-making within the school. A number of issues have already been identified and the
next stage will be to examine how best to put their ideas into practice. Each Year Group will have its own Chair
and Secretary. Items discussed will eventually be raised at Whole School Council level. The Mayor spoke to the young
people and highlighted some of the important skills required to make a good representative.
Year 8 pupils took part in a thirty-minute sponsored silence to raise money for Fields of Life.
They raised an incredible £2,723.90! Mrs. Price, classroom assistant, will be travelling to Uganda with
Fields of Life in July for two weeks to work in two schools: Star Parents in Mubendi and Tanaga Primary School in

Raising money for Save the Children fund
This Christmas, Clounagh pupils raised £500 for the Portadown branch of the Northern Ireland Save the Children Fund.
Clounagh was honoured to be asked by the Banbridge Home Safety Office for the District Council to design the entire 2015
calendar to promote safety in the home. As a result, 13 students have had their work published in the council’s annual
Home safety calendar and received a £15 voucher. In Art lessons, students were very excited and quickly got to work on
researching and illustrating posters, raising awareness of blind cord safety, fire in the home, slips trips and falls,
and carbon monoxide poisoning, to name but a few.
