Over the last couple of years the Ulster U17 Team has played the England U16 Team in a 3 test series. This is occurring again this year from Friday 1 May to Monday 4 May 2015. The venue is Lilleshall, in England.
The Rainey Endowed School is delighted to say many congratulations to two of their pupils Rachel Burns and Lauren Mulholland, who have been selected this year for this series of matches. This is Rachel’s second year and Laurens first on this Ulster Team both having progressed up from the Ulster U16 Team. The school would like to wish the girls all the very best as they head off on Friday.
Many congratulations to Alex Burns, Ellie Montgomery and Betty Scott of the Rainey Endowed School who have been selected for the Ulster U16 Hockey Development Squad 2015-2016.
It is from this group that selections will be taken for a 3 test series against Scotland U16 Development Group at UUJ in the period 19 to 21 June 2015 and Irish Hockey’s U16 Inter Provincial Tournament in late October.
Congratulations to all Rainey Rockeeters who successfully designed, built and launched their rockets throughout February and March. The rocketeering club has more than doubled in size since last year with 30 pupils having regularly attended build sessions throughout the spring term.
On Thursday the Community Group received certificates in Assembly. The certificates were presented by Deirdre Monaghan, the Manager of Brooklands Care Home, and Marjorie Cadden, the Activities Therapist. 62 pupils received certificates to mark their commitment to weekly visits to Brooklands Care Home. The group would like to thank the staff at Brooklands and in particular, Deirdre and Marjorie, who have accommodated our visits and given the pupils a very worthwhile experience. We look forward to continuing our visits next year.
