Lurgan College & Lurgan JHS - Lurgan Colour Rush
We are delighted to be involved with a vibrant and energetic charity event on 9th February, Lurgan Colour Rush. Hannah Corr and her "Colour Rush" team, a group of past pupils who are currently studying at Lurgan College, have organised numerous meetings with Lurgan JHS staff and pupils to promote their special charity day. We look forward to participating in this event just before our mid-term break.
Pupil Sampler Day 4
On 25th January, we welcomed a range of Primary Schools for our final Sampler day of the academic year. P6 pupils from Moira, Carrick and Maghaberry Primary Schools enjoyed a fun-filled day of Music, ICT, Studio, Technology, Science, Drama and PE!
Lurgan College - Pupils on Work Experience
It was wonderful to welcome back some of our past pupils who are currently in Year 13 at Lurgan College. They chose to come to our school for their work experience within different departments - English, Maths, History, Geography, Languages, Music, PE and TD.
We loved having them back with us. It is always great to hear how our past pupils are progressing and be able to support them with their work experience. They all looked the part of prospective teachers and Lurgan JHS staff were thrilled to give them the opportunity of taking part in their lessons. We wish them all the very best for the future!
Craigavon Area Food Bank
Lurgan JHS pupils, parents/guardians and teachers gathered together to support Craigavon Area Food Bank this Christmas. Nearly half a tonne of food was donated which is incredible. A huge THANK YOU to everyone who joined together as a community to help support this cause.
Pupil Sampler Days 2 & 3
On Thursday 9th and Friday 10th November, we welcomed a variety of Primary Schools to Lurgan JHS. These included Waringstown, Rowandale, Dickson, Donacloney, Meadowbridge, Ballinderry and Maralin.
Lurgan JHS, Lurgan College & Craigavon Senior High - Monster Music Marathon
On 25th October, we had an amazing showcase of musical talent! Pupils from Lurgan JHS and Lurgan College took to the stage to provide an array of singing, dancing and instrumental acts for the whole community to enjoy!
Lurgan College performed a number of items from their upcoming show, Footloose. It was fantastic to see so many past pupils on stage.
We were delighted to welcome back past pupil, Calvin Wells to the stage. Calvin continued his journey to Craigavon Senior High and is now studying music for his future career. Calvin wowed the audience, not only with his humour, but also his own composition and lead guitar skills.
We were also joined by local celebrity, Emma Horan! Emma is a past pupil of Lurgan JHS and also Lurgan College. Emma's vocal skills have firmly placed her career in the music industry. We wish all our past musicians every success in the future and are very excited to see our current musicians flourish!
