Over 150 Students from local high schools celebrated their success recently at an awards ceremony for students participating on the School Partnerships’ Programme (SPP) at Southern Regional College’s Lurgan and Portadown Campuses.
Southern Regional College welcomed Year 12 students from Brownlow Integrated College, Clounagh Junior High School, Craigavon Senior High School, Lismore Comprehensive School, Tandragee Junior High School and St Ronan’s College to celebrate their achievements at this special awards ceremony.
The School Partnership Programme enables Year 11 and 12 students in the school sector to sample areas including, digital imaging, joinery, beauty, hospitality, hairdressing and motor mechanics, in order to make a more informed career decision. The students on the SPP programme attend SRC one day per week for two years and achieve recognised qualifications on completion of their studies.
Guest Speaker on the day was Alicia Prunty, past SPP pupil who has continued her studies at SRC and is currently completing HND in Hairdressing and Beauty Therapy at the Lurgan Campus.
SPP Student of the Year was awarded to Martynas Matulevicius from Brownlow Integrated College and the Endeavour award went to Wiktoria Mrozek from St Ronan’s College.
