Jamie Amos represented the College at the Church service in Enniskillen on Sunday 16 June. He was one of a number of students from different schools who led the congregation in prayer. Enough Food for Everyone (IF) is a coalition of more than 200 organisations across the UK and Ireland who are calling on the G8 leaders to take action to tackle some of the root causes of poverty. This is a link to the IF website.
Just a reminder that buses will operate 30 minutes earlier in the morning only from 10 – 21 June inclusive. School will also open earlier to accommodate the students. The canteen will be open from 8am. All after school clubs have been cancelled during this period.
All our Maths students have access to the My Maths website at www.mymaths.co.uk where they can log in and use their own username and password to complete tasks set by their maths teacher, do some valuable revision of their own, or just have a go at some of the maths games available.

Accelerated Reading Programme
All of our Year 8 and Year 9 pupils now have access to the Accelerated Reading Programme.
Pupils shall choose a book that they can enjoy reading from the wide selection in the school library. Once they have read the book they can then log into the website using the link below and answer the quiz for their book.
Over time this will enable each pupil to improve their reading skills. Pupils have been given their usernames and passwords by their English teachers.

As you will be aware the G8 summit comes to Fermanagh on 17 and 18 June. A letter has been posted to all parents outlining arrangements for the period 10-21 June.
Devenish College students were amongst 80 post primary students who discussed global issues at a recent conference. Students worked in cross community teams and represented their schools in topical, interactive and educational workshops.
The event took place at the Lough Erne Resort and the students made presentations to a broad spectrum of guests.
Did you know?
Last year 85% of all grades achieved at A level by our students were A*-C. 70% of our students achieved 3 A levels at grades A*, A, B or C which is 26% above the Northern Ireland average for non selective schools. These achievements were better than 20 grammar schools in Northern Ireland
Overcrowded? Not at all – there is a teaching space for every 11 students
ICT provision – there is a computer for every 3 children
