03 Mar 2016 Trip to W5 Interactive Discovery Centre

EB pupils enjoyed a day at W5 (short for "whowhatwherewhenwhy"), Northern Ireland's award-winning science and discovery centre at Odyssey in Belfast.

26 Feb 2016 STEM Table Quiz NI Finals

The Clounagh team who qualified for the STEM Table Quiz NI Finals were 3 points off qualifying for the Semi-Final last night, at Titanic Belfast. The team was in 2nd place after 3 rounds but narrowly missed out on getting into the top four after 6 rounds. The competition was won by Brownlow Integrated College after beating Lumen Cristi in the final. Barra Best was the celebrity Quizmaster (he forecast ‘high pressure’ for last night’s event!!)

84 teams entered and we competed against top Grammar Schools (including BRA and Ballyclare High amonst many others). The team performed admirably to qualify for the last 8 teams and they behaved superbly. Mr. Carville has suggested that a similar event could be held within school as a House competition event – watch this space.

26 Feb 2016 Joseph then and now

The final Friday evening performance of Joseph and the Amazing Technicolour Dreamcoat proved to be a night of nostalgia when former Clounagh pupil Mrs. Lisa Duke (Nee Cassidy) watched a present pupil play the leading role of Joseph, the same part Lisa had played in Clounagh’s previous production of the show 25 years ago. The evening brought many memories flooding back as Lisa enjoyed the cast of 2016 presenting their version of the Lloyd Webber/Rice show.

16 Feb 2016 Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat

A few weeks ago if you had walked into Clounagh Junior High School you might have mistaken it for a theatre, as the school assembly hall became the venue for its most recent production of Joseph and the Amazing Technicolour Dreamcoat. The all-singing, all-dancing version of the Old Testament Bible story was enthusiastically performed by over sixty talented Clounagh pupils under the expert musical direction of Mr. Colin Slaine and choreographer Mrs. Sharon Moore. Over two thousand people came through the doors during a week, which involved seven performances for local primary school pupils and adults alike. So as the curtain closed at the end of the final performance and Joseph took off that multi-coloured coat and replaced it with the blue and gold school uniform, the theatre was packed away ... until the next production in 2018!

16 Sept 2015 A unique visitor

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.

17 July 2015 Film Club

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.

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!
