As I sat at a desk in Saintfield High School and often daydreamed at the future I never envisioned that my academic career would have taken me to where I am today. With the help of my teachers at Saintfield High, family and friends and God, I was supported and able to work hard to reach my potential. This meant that I left Saintfield High with positive grades that opened the pathway to completing A-Levels and then a Bachelor with Honours in Theology. Having completed my degree in 2011, I applied to the PGCE Post Primary Qualification and was accepted to embark on pursuing my passion for teaching R.E. this September 2012. I would like to take this opportunity to thank all of the staff that influenced my education and inspired me to walk this path. To all the current students at Saintfield High School, continue to reach your potential and never let anyone deter you from your dreams.

I'm writing to inform you of my recent A Level results that I received in August. I got 2 A* (in ICT and History) and an A in Sociology! I have been accepted into Queens University to study a joint honours degree in Criminology and Sociology. It’s strange to think that I am no longer a school pupil!
I thank you and the staff at Saintfield High School for giving me the best start possible in my academic career!
I wish you and Saintfield High School a rewarding year!
