  • Ski trip to Austria on piste

    Thirty Shimna students and three staff are currently in Austria on a week-long ski trip Mr Keenan writes: “Our students are having a wonderful time on the slopes of Seefeld in Austria. It's day four and everyone is learning so much: skiing skills of course, but also language, food and culture. We are skiing 5 hours each day and getting plenty of activities and entertainment in the evening. It’s proving to be the experience of a lifetime, as the photos demonstrate.”

  • Cross-country success for Shimna runners

    Last Thursday, Shimna’s cross-county runners took part in the Down Championships. They did the College proud, especially given the tricky conditions, and there were a number of excellent performances on the day. Special mentions go to Fahlin Murphy McKibben ( Year 8 ) and Kari Foster ( Year 10 ), both of whom qualified for the Ulster Championships later this year. Fahlin finished in 3rd position in the boys’ race and Kari crossed the line 4th. Well done to Fahlin and Kari. We wish them well in the next round.

  • Parents | Shimna College

    Parent Zone Shimna was founded by parents, and the support of parents and guardians is central to everything we do. The Parent Council was formed in the first year of the school's existence, and parents/guardians have ever since been providing practical help in terms of tea and biscuits at consultation evenings and fundraising which has benefited many subject departments in the school. However, the Parent Council plays its most vital role in sustaining their involvement in our policies and procedures. Every parent/guardian is a member of the Parent Council, and takes part in regular surveys.
