2nd place at Youth Games for Southern RDS

Four Clounagh girls, previously selected for the Southern Regional Development Squad Under 15 Hockey Tournament, represented the SELB at the Sports Council Youth Games at Queens University on Saturday 13 May. At full time, with no score on either side, the game switched to Golden Goal, at which point the SELB team narrowly missed 1st place. Well done, girls, on coming a very close 2nd. (Clockwise from the top: Megan, Leah, Rachel and Emma.)

Belated news: Letters to G8 leaders

In 2005 several charities focused the attention of the world on the millions of children worldwide who live in poverty and are unable to go to school. The campaign culminated in concerts and protests in Edinburgh coinciding with the G8 Summit.

Class EB produced models to represent some of the disadvantaged children. These were taken to Edinburgh for the G8 Summit. The class also entered a competition in which they wrote letters to the leaders of the G8 countries. Three pupils won the top prizes for the Key Stage 3 level. Left to right: Rachel (1st), Sarah (2nd), Rachel (3rd).

In addition to individual prizes, the class received a certificate and a selection of books for the school library. Well done, EB!

Clounagh staff run Belfast City Marathon for orphanage

Five members of staff at Clounagh Junior High School took part in the Belfast City Marathon on Monday 1 May (left to right: Mr Graham, Mr Eakin, Mr Sloan, Mr Farr and Miss Fleming). They ran as a relay team, completing the full 25-mile course in 3 hours 50 mins. The purpose of the marathon was to raise money for Katya Vanchev orphanage in Bulgaria, which the school visits each February during the annual ski trip. Special thanks to those pupils who will be attending next year's ski trip, who sponsored the relay team.
