Lisnagarvey High celebrates its best results yet!


Lisnagarvey high school recently honoured the achievements of its students; with this year’s GCSE and A level results exceeding any other year to date!
 
Pupils, parents and staff attended the recent Prize Giving ceremony to celebrate outstanding results at GCSE and A Level. After an opening prayer from Rev J Todd, the chairman of the Board of Governors, Dr C Sproule took to the stage to update guests on the progress of the school and the fantastic examination results. Dr Sproule stated GCSE  and A Level results fell within the top band of high schools, in the province, for a 3rd year in a row. 
 
Principal Mr Jim Sheerin expressed his joy at the recent celebrations and highlighted successes, across all subject departments, within the Lisburn based school. In an upbeat speech, Mr Sheerin stated “As a school this is about as good as it gets, the level of potential achieved is outstanding!”
 
Mr Sheerin commended the ‘seemingly limitless energy’ of pupils and staff in a school year which witnessed a record achievement
 
According to Mr Sheerin, it is both hard work and determination that define the core ethic of Lisnagarvey High school; which sits firmly in the top quartile (15%) of performance within Secondary schools in Northern Ireland.
 
Mr Sheerin continued to speak warmly of the hard work and enthusiasm demonstrated by pupils and thanked staff for helping to ensure the highest possible standards of teaching and learning in the school. In reference to the future, Mr Sheerin stated: “This level of success serves only to make us even more determined to do better than before. We want to see each child given the best possible chance of achieving success and it is through our subjects that we deliver this.”
 
In his speech, Head boy Joshua McRoberts described Lisnagarvey High as a ‘family school’, stating this was something he has loved being a part of. When describing his time spent at Lisnagarvey High, Joshua said: “My education here has been an inspirational experience.”
 
Reverent J Todd took to the stage to reflect on his own educational experiences gained at Lisnagarvey High and spoke fondly of his memories here. As a student who failed his 11+ exam, he attended Lisnagarvey High and spoke of how he owes credit to this as a foundation to achieving future success.
 
Guest of honour, Rev IW Ellis, attended the event to assist in the presentation of awards. Reverent Ian, Church of Ireland Educational Spokesman, is a former pupil of Lisnagarvey High (1968-1973).
 
The ceremony came to a close with a magnificent buffet of delicacies prepared and served by pupils undertaking qualifications in ‘Hospitality’
 
Throughout the ceremony it was clear to see that Lisnagarvey, the school at the heart of the community, is a school which holds the success of each and every pupil at its core.
