WIN One Night bed and Breakfast with full access to the Spa at The Culloden Hotel
Each year our Upper Sixth A-Level Business Studies students undertake an assignment which involves researching, planning, and executing an event of a substantial nature. The purpose of the assignment is to draw out those key business skills such as contingency planning, negotiation, time management etc At present the group are in the process of researching the possibility of going to London, where they will have the chance to engage in many of the tourist attractions, whilst also taking in a visit to one or more of the third level education establishments.
It is vitally important that the students partake in fundraising activities to complement the activities of the trip. The students have negotiated a package with The Culloden Hotel (5*) and can now offer you the opportunity to win a one night stay (Bed and Breakfast), with full access to the Spa etc. Raffle tickets are available for purchase at a price of £5.00 per strip of 5, or 5 strips of 5 for £20.00 from Mr Fulton at the school.
Last years’ winner and her experience: Mrs Willis
“When my daughter came home and said the school were selling raffle tickets to raise money for the sixth form business trip, we thought it was a great idea. When I found out that the prize was a one night stay in the Galgorm Spa and Hotel I bought five raffles and joked with her that we had to win. After a while I forgot all about the draw until I received an unexpected phone call from the school to say we had won the prize. I was genuinely shocked as I have never won anything before!!
We decided to go just after Easter and chose to stay on a Saturday night. I had never been to the Galgorm before so I was pleasantly surprised at the beautiful grounds and the lovely building. From the moment we checked in we were well looked after and shown to a lovely room. We decided to use the Spa first and spent three hours using all their facilities which was then followed by a lovely evening meal. After breakfast the next morning we both agreed that our stay was a lovely experience and well worth the price of the raffle tickets that we bought. I must thank the Sixth Form at Lisnagarvey for this wonderful experience – it was beautiful!”
If you are the lucky winner, you can choose the time and date to suit your diary, subject to availability at the hotel.
If you would like to purchase one or more raffle tickets, please complete the following slip and your tickets can be collected from the school office.

Thanking you in anticipation for your support.
