Vice Principal Derry Morley hailed the energy and enthusiasm of TY students during a hugely successful past year.

"This was a remarkable TY group to work with and they immersed themselves totally in different projects. I believe, they benefited greatly from the experience and obtained enjoyment. They were a pleasure to be involved with and I wish them well in their future studies", he said.
