Media Maestros

Peter Meehan, Caolan Caterson

Creative subjects are continuing to flourish at Omagh CBS with students developing their skills and knowledge in A Level Journalism and A level Media Studies. With the accolade of top student in Northern Ireland in A Level Journalism awarded to Ciaran Melarkey last year, the opportunities to explore the world of media and press are being provided extensively for local students.

Technology continues to develop at a rapid pace and the students at Omagh CBS are extremely fortunate to have access to sophisticated software for use in these creative subjects. Past pupil, Mr Peter Meehan of Big Rock Designs, a computer training consultants company, very kindly shared his expertise during a recent training day for the students. Peter helped the students move step by step though the intricacies of InDesign in preparation for using this program to complete portfolio design. His professionalism and patience ensured that the students left him feeling confident as they prepare to finalise their work. One Year 13 student remarked, “It all seems straightforward until you try to complete the finer details. Peter’s advice was very helpful and he explained everything clearly to give us a chance to grasp it.”
