Cullybackey Challenge Winner
We are really pleased to announce that Lucy Gillespie from The Diamond Primary School was the winner of the Cullybackey Challenge competition following the INOV8 STEM day and the Open Nights last week. There were over 60 correct entries to the competition and Lucy's name was drawn out of a hat.
Mr Manson, the College Vice Principal, was very pleased to see so many correct entries. He said, "It was great to see that so many P7 pupils had made the effort to visit with us and then to enter our competition – I look forward to visiting The Diamond over the next few days to hand over the prize – a Kindle Fire HDX."
Please see Mr Cowan if you would like to travel to the Ulster vs. Scarlets match on Friday 27th February.

Recently at STEM Club we became structural engineers for an hour, designing and constructing bridges built out of chocolate. We melted the edges of the chocolate, and then held it together until the bonds reformed and our bridges were steady.
Show jumping success
The senior football team ended up on the wrong side of a 3-0 defeat to Newtownabbey side Edmund Rice College on Wednesday afternoon. Buoyed by a comprehensive win over Dalriada School in their previous game, the boys went into the game with some confidence. However, two second half goals and a third halfway through the second half condemned the Pottinger Street men to defeat.
The Year 12s also bowed out of their Plate competition, defeated by Enniskillen school Portora at the Ballymena Showgrounds. On Thursday, the Year 10 team completed their Mid Antrim league campaign with an away defeat to St. Benedicts, Scott Marcus with their only goal.
