The presentation of the Millennium Volunteers Awards, to Year 13 & 14 pupils, was made in Assembly this morning. These students have given their time over the past year to help others, locally, nationally and internationally. Through various activities they have developed many different skills, gained personal confidence and grown in their compassion for others.

From charities to churches, sports' teams to uniformed organisations, sixth formers are reaching out to children, teenagers, the elderly, disadvantaged and people from other countries. They show compassion for animals, a desire to educate others and even go so far as to travel across the world to support those in need.

Mr. Black was delighted that today we were able to present sixty Millennium Volunteers Awards.

2 schools’ awards for 35 hours volunteering, 9 bronze awards for 50 hours service and 28 silver awards recognising 100 hours of volunteering.

In February, a further 20 students were invited to receive their gold awards at the Titanic, Belfast to celebrate their outstanding 200 hours service to others. The school also celebrated their success today.
