For the second consecutive year one of our students’ has collected the award for First place in North Irelands GCSE Manufacturing qualification. This year Conor Doherty collected the award at a fantastic event Celebrating Success with CCEA in the Titanic Building in Belfast on the 1st May.
Conor Doherty is pictured with Principal Mr F McConnell and his Manufacturing teacher Mr K Kelly.
Mr Kelly, Conor’s Manufacturing teacher stated “it was a pleasure to assist Conor and last year Richard Connaughton with their great achievements; both quietly confident young men with an aptitude for problem solving, who I have no doubt, will have great careers in design engineering and manufacture!”
To achieve the award Conor had to produce a wooden and acrylic child’s pull along toy cart, a full design portfolio from concept to final technical drawings and sit two exam papers – ‘no easy task’.
