Randox Health Grand National Trophy unveiled at CIC
On Tuesday 21st February, we were privileged to welcome the Randox Health Tour to the College as they unveiled, for the first time, the new Randox Health Grand National Trophy. We were also joined on the morning by pupils and staff from St Joseph’s Primary School, Crumlin Integrated Primary School and Gaelscoil Ghleann Darach as well as representatives from all of the main political parties.
The Head Boy, Brian Savage, was specially chosen to unveil the trophy at our special assembly in front of a packed hall whilst Head Girl, Hannah Storey, made a special presentation of her recently completed painting, to the company.
Mrs Mcgarry reported, “We were absolutely thrilled that the children of each of our schools in Crumlin were the first to see the Randox Health Grand National Trophy. Horse racing is such a popular sport in Northern Ireland and many of our pupils watch the Grand National at home with their families. To be able to share in the excitement leading up to the race is a fantastic opportunity for them. We are very proud that the company, which is just down the road from us, is partnering with the world’s greatest race and that Dr Fitzgerald chose Crumlin Integrated College to be the first school to see this magnificent trophy.”
