28/05/13 - Year 11 Geography Students visit Killowen 
Year 11 Geography Students visit Killowen to obtain Fluvial data of the Yellow Water River, to complete their GCSE CAT. 
Eight GCSE geography students braved the cold and wet weather in Rostrevor to gather and record data from the Yellow Water River, in preparation for their controlled assessment task worth 25% of their overall GCSE. The students were guided by field instructor Vincent Mc Allinden from the Killowen Outdoor Educational Centre as well as their subject teacher, Mrs Flanagan. Everyone had a fun day exploring the characteristics and features of a river as they change downstream, and now the hard work will begin in the classroom interpreting the results!

09/05/13 - Year 10 Remember The Holocaust 
Since January our Year 10 pupils have been studying The Holocaust in their History lessons. In the autumn Year 10A planted yellow crocus bulbs as part of a project run by the Holocaust Education Trust.  
The aim of the project is to remember the one and a half million Jewish children and thousands of other children who died in the Holocaust. The yellow flowers recall the yellow Star of David all Jews were forced to wear under Nazi rule. It is hoped that 10A's involvement in planting the bulbs and watching the flowers grow will encourage ongoing learning about the importance of tolerance and respect.

01/05/13 - Football Minnows Win League Title 
The Under 15 Football Team have been crowned the Mid-Ulster Schools' Football Association (MUSFA) Under 15 League Champions for the first time ever in history. 
The title was secured following a 3-0 victory over Drumcree College on Tuesday 30 April. Early goals from Matthew Leyburn and Daryl Johnston helped to settle any nerves for Mr Black's team before Daryl added another goal in the closing stages of the match. 
This success really is a massive achievement for the traditional footballing minnows of Newtownhamilton High. On route to league success, the team secured notable victories over much larger schools such as Craigavon Senior High, Lismore Comprehensive and Markethill High.  
What a fantastic achievement and something that will live long in the memories of the winning squad of: 
Jason Clarke, Matthew Giffin, Jeffrey Martin, Matthew Harrison, Gary Knight, Andrew Knight, William Honeyman, Neil Morton, Daryl Johnston, Matthew Leyburn, Nathan Dodds, Matthew Gibson, Aaron Dickson & Matthew Rowland.
