Girls in Year 10 recently took part in a Careers Information Day. They were given the opportunity to find out about the subjects available to them at GCSE by asking our Sixth Formers about their experiences with their own subject choices.
The girls also completed online tasks designed to match them with suitable career pathways. Talks from the regional Career’s Officer and from guest speakers from IT rounded off the day.
Talented and esteemed local author, Debbie [aka DJ] McCune, visited Hunterhouse on Wednesday 29 January 2014 delighting and enthusing Year 8 and 9 girls with her latest publications.
Ms McCune, primarily a teacher and also a writer of young teen reads, was brought up in Carrickfergus and now lives in Portstewart.
‘Death & Co’, her first published novel is succeeded by its sequel, ‘The Mortal Knife’.
Girls in Years 8 & 9 were asked to write their own version of the first chapter of ‘Death & Co’. The best entry was from Holly Breslin 8-3. Holly, pictured below closest to Ms McCune, won a signed copy of her book.
Debbie would be absolutely delighted if you decided to contact her or review her books
