15/02/17 - Kingspan Stadium Visit 
 
On Friday 10th February, Newtownhamilton High School pupils got well into the rugby spirit by “Standing Up For The Ulstermen!”. 
 
Over 90 pupils travelled to Kingspan Stadium to watch Ulster play against Edinburgh and whilst the weather was indeed chilly, that didn’t seem to change the pupil’s enthusiasm! 
 
Arriving just on time and having just got a quick bite to eat, the game commenced and very quickly Ulster showed just how strong a side they can be when they need to. 
 
In the first half, Ulster managed to score several tries right in front of the excitable Newtownhamilton crowd. Tries from the likes of Charles Piatau put Ulster in a very favourable position going into the second half. 
 
Whilst Edinburgh definitely upped their game in the 2nd half – pushing Ulster’s defence to its limit, thankfully, the boys in white managed to hold on and claim a 24-18 victory in the PRO-12 League. 
 
A very enjoyable evening indeed. 
 
Many thanks to all the staff who attended as well! 
08/02/17 – Presbyterian Moderator Visits School 
 
The staff and pupils of Newtownhamilton High School had a visit yesterday from the Rt Rev Dr Frank Sellar, who is the current Moderator of the General Assembly of the Presbyterian Church in Ireland. 
 
Dr Sellar, who was in the company of local Presbyterian Minister Rev Ker Graham, has had a number of engagements in the South Armagh area over recent days but took time out of his busy schedule to meet and chat with staff and pupils over an excellent lunch, which was provided by Canteen Unit Supervisor Mrs Sharon McNiece. 
 
Dr Sellar and Rev Graham are pictured with Newtownhamilton High Principal Neil Megaw and pupils Jamie Nesbitt and Abigail Whyte.

It pleasing to see the Education Authority’s continued commitment to the secure future of Newtownhamilton High School with financial investment to improve the roof of the main building. 
 
Construction work has commenced this week but unfortunately this will involve some disruption to car parking and access to the main front door until the date of completion on 31st March. Therefore, all pupils, parents and visitors are asked to exercise extreme caution and adhere to all health and safety regulations while on school premises during this time.
