A sincere thank you from Mrs Russell (Principal) and Staff of Holy Trinity College

A sincere thank-you….
On Wednesday 20th May, Holy Trinity College held two very special ceremonies for Year 14 and Year 12 students respectively. Under the guidance of Fr Boyle, we celebrated two most beautiful, uplifting, and spiritual Masses in Holy Trinity Church. We pay tribute to those who made both ceremonies possible: Mr Mc Gartland Head of Year 14, and who provided the Music, Mrs Coleman Head of Religion, Mrs Quinn Head of KS5, Mr Mc Clean Head of Year 12 and Mrs Magee Head of KS4. We also appreciate everyone joining with us online. However, it was the participation of the students themselves which made both ceremonies very emotional and personal. From Year 14, we thank John Mc Guckin, Dearbhla Mc Crystal, Cliodhna Loughran, Lauren Teague and Joseph Doyle for communicating the Liturgy to us, and Laura Cassin who sang so passionately. Thanks to Jodie Bayne, Kerrie Donnelly, Shea Mc Namee, Shea Mc Nicholl and Billy Scott for conveying the Year 12 Liturgy and to Laura Mc Guckin, for her eloquent singing. I was so proud of everyone of them on the day.

A message to Year 14…
Year 14, you have talent and skills in abundance. You have developed as strong young people, full of kindness,thoughtfulness, reaching out to help others and making your presence known in the world. Every one of you has something worthwhile to contribute in life – never let others ‘put you down’. Stand up for yourself and your values, and refuse to be influenced by the opinion of others. You all have the ability to be successful. Never give up on life, do not settle for second best, have high aspirations and, keep trying until you achieve what you set out to do.

A message to Year 12….
After 5 years with us in the College, Year 12 have grown and matured into creative, hard-working and caring young students,supporting and looking out for each other in so many ways. We look forward to many of you returning to Sixth Form and starting another new journey with us. We know others will progress to Further Education or into Employment, but whatever route you take – hold your head up high, and be the best that you can be, every day. Yes, you are experiencing an upheaval at the moment, but don’t let that stop you. Find a way to make a difference to those around you – achieve the things you never thought were possible, and we’ll be here waiting for you, to welcome you back to the classroom and to start all over again.

On behalf of all the staff in Holy Trinity College, we hope and pray that Year 14 and Year 12 will look after themselves and their families during this difficult time, that they will continue to connect with their friends and that they will stay safe.

Best Wishes and Good Luck to you all.
Mrs Russell
