"Promoting Personal Excellence"
HEAD GIRL & HEAD BOY 2012 - 2013
Head Girl - Lauren Mullan 14S
After completing my GCSE studies in another school I joined St Patrick’s College in 2011. I researched many schools offering the A Level courses I wanted to study and my main reason for enrolling here in St Patrick’s College was the outstanding results achieved in Double Award Health and Social Care. I studied four A Level courses in my AS Year and then opted to specialise in three during this my final Year.
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 supported in my social and spiritual development through my involvement in the Pope John Paul II awards and my voluntary work with the Parish St Vincent de Paul Youth Conference.
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 in 2011 because I know she will have many more opportunities to enjoy everything St Patrick’s College has to offer.
Head Boy - Edward McElhinney 14S
I started in our school in 2006 as a Year 8 pupil. 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 here St Patrick’s College.
I have always been; challenged by my teachers to do better in every area of school life, supported and guided when making important choices and praised when I have achieved my goals. Our school is the ideal environment for every pupil in our community who wants to work hard, share their talents and develop in all aspects of life and positively contribute to their own community.
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.
