Extra curricular pursuits are very important here at Wellington . Pupils have the opportunity to take part in a variety of activities including Art, Drama, Music, Duke of Edinburgh and Science.
The Astronomy Club is the place to be for any pupils interested in finding out about new planets, building a telescope or joining a project to study storms on the Sun.
On Wednesday 11th November, after a short leave of absence (due to the school production) Drama Club made a triumphant comeback to the Lecture Theatre. Mrs McKenna and Mrs Lowry saw the return of many familiar faces and were delighted to welcome new members from the Junior School to Wellington’s most dynamic and lively after-school club!
The Award is a valuable range of experiences for young people. For successful completion at Gold level they must, over an extended period, be involved in community work, develop their own skills and fitness, work with others on projects and also complete a fairly testing 4 day expedition in unfamiliar territory. Last year we had some participants in the Share Centre in Fermanagh helping with groups of younger and disabled persons in activities.
