It was the end of an era in Deele College last Friday, when the staff and students of the school said farewell to Principal, Mr PJ McGowan. Mr McGowan, who has been at the school since 1984, became the principal in 2000 and has worked tirelessly for the betterment of the school and the Raphoe community. Various speakers were on hand at Friday’s ceremony to pay testament to the work, which PJ has done in his time at the school. While it was an emotional day for all concerned, it was a celebration of a long and distinguished career, which will be remembered for years to come here at Deele College.

The school hosted a very well attended ecumenical service on Tuesday evening for parents and students who are undertaking the Leaving Cert. Conducted by Father McGettigan and Reverend Wilson, the service was a send off for students who will be shortly leaving the school. There were songs, prayers and speeches, all performed by sixth year students, who had a very enjoyable night together as a school community. This was an emotional evening for the students, who are now ending a journey that has taken six years. We would like to wish them all the very best in their exams and their future careers.

Our Transition Year students held a very successful sports-hall athletics competition on Monday for primary school pupils in the area. This was a very well organised event and great credit must go to the Transition Year students for their dedication to the task.

The ‘Lunchtime Club’ went on an exciting day out on Monday to the Gartan Outdoor Education Centre, where they got to go canoeing. The students who have been attending the club all had a great day.
