One of our past pupils, Adam Toner, visited our school today to speak with pupils about working hard to reach their goals in life.
Adam is Head Boy at St Colman’s College, Newry and has just finished his A level exams. He aspires to go to Kings College, Cambridge or Imperial College, London in September to study Mathematics. The children thoroughly enjoyed asking Adam questions about transferring to a larger school, the subjects he enjoys and his goals in life.
His main message to the children today was “Work Hard, Be Happy!” Even if you come from a small school you can achieve great things if you are prepared to work hard!
At the special assembly Adam presented Art McCooey and Eli Toner with Screenplays of Harry Potter for each achieving over 1million words in their accelerated reading this year. Well done to both boys!
We thank Adam for visiting and wish him well in the future.
