"Promoting Personal Excellence"

                         HEAD GIRL & HEAD BOY 2013 - 2014



Head Boy - Raymond O'Kane 14S

I joined St Patrick’s College as a Year 8 pupil in September 2007. I have always enjoyed the friendly atmosphere, caring teachers and the opportunities for all pupils to represent our school in sport, music, drama, languages and many other areas.

I have friends at other larger schools who do not get the same encouragement or individual attention that we get at St Patrick’s College. I am entering my final Year of A Levels studying Music, Religion and ICT.

Attending our local school places pupils at the heart of our community where they are ideally positioned to actively promote all that is best about Dungiven and its surrounding areas. We are role models to the pupils in our partner Primary schools who we work closely with on many after school projects. We publicly and proudly represent our Parishes, our school, our families and our communities as pupils of St Patrick’s College Dungien.

Head Girl - Claire Carton 14S

I joined St Patrick’s College as a Year 8 pupil in September 2007. I am studying A Levels in Double Award Health and Social Care and Applied Science. I am looking forward to my final Year, making use of our school Library, Sixth Form study centre and new ICT suite, this is a real boost for my Sixth Form studies.

Throughout my time in St Patrick’s I have been challenged, supported and praised for my efforts, this school recognises much more than just academic excellence. I was challenged when voted into my position as Head Girl and have grown in confidence as a result.

I have been praised and rewarded in so many different ways by the staff, who work hard at making all students feel welcome and very much part of our school community. I am proud of my school and delighted that my younger sister joined as a Year 8 this year because I know she will have the same opportunities to enjoy everything St Patrick’s College has to offer.
