January 31, 2018


Two groups of Year 13 students from Rathmore competed in the regional heat of the Schools Geology Challenge on 30th January. The competition heat was organised by the Northern Ireland Regional Group of the Geological Society of London (GSL) and hosted at Rathmore.

The members of the winning team were Ellen Cunningham, Christie Hamilton, Megan Lundy, Catriona McCoy and Pearse Smith.
