We are pleased to open the annual House Report of 2019 by welcoming all of the new members to Larmor House. We hope that they will find their time at RBAI both enjoyable and successful, and trust they will make the most of the opportunities available to them at school.

Larmor House has had an excellent year academically with a number of the house members performing exceptionally well. At A2 level, Callum Walsh was the top performance achieving an A*, A and a B, whilst I wish every Year 14 from the previous year all the best in the future and thank them for their contributions to the house. In Year 13, Abdullah Majeed, Hugo Ellerby and Callum Harley all achieved 3A’s at AS level. At GCSE there were notable performances from Paddy Eames with 30 points and Sam McKee with 33 points capping off a fantastic year for Larmor throughout the three different levels of exams.

Throughout 2018-19 Larmor performed well in the Interhouse Cup ending up in 3rd place behind Kelvin and Dill with excellent results in the Pirrie Cup (Senior House Rugby) in which we came 2nd as well as the Junior House Rugby teams (Year 8-10) sharing the cup with Kelvin. In the current academic year, both our Corry Cup and Pirrie Cup teams for House Rugby lost narrowly in their respective finals in what has been a promising start to the Interhouse Cup.

Beyond the house, Larmor pupils participated extensively throughout the many different co-curricular activities on offer. In every 1st team within school ranging from Rugby, Hockey and Football through to Cricket and Fencing, there was always at least one house member and often more who were valued members of these societies. While, there was certainly no shortage of talent elsewhere in the school with a significant number of pupils from the house taking part in the successful concerts that took place throughout the year.

Individually, the number of house members that represented both the school and in some cases their province or country is at an all time high. In Cricket, Adam Leckey (Year 9) represented the Northern Cricket Union (NCU) at u13/14 level, alongside this Ashton Clark, Rory Ellerby (both Year 11) and James Rose (Year 12) played for the NCU u15 with Rory and James also playing for the Ireland u15. In Rugby, Paddy Eames (Year 13) played representative rugby for the Ulster u18 squad in their interprovincial matches in Limerick. Additionally Rory Ellerby and Jacob Boyd (Year 11) were also successful in being selected for the Ulster Age-Grade squads that train throughout the year. The trio of Josh Cree (Year 13), Dan Smith (Year 11) and Jack Oakman (Year 14) were all involved with Ulster Hockey squads this year whilst Matthew Cheung (Year 11) had yet another exceptional year in Badminton representing the Ireland u17 age group at various competitions yet again proving how talented he is. Furthermore there were also notable representative performances from Ethan Harris-O’Neill and Regan Lath Amou (both Year 9) in Athletics as well as Thomas Dillon, Oliver Clark and Ben Magee (all Year 12) in Athletics, Swimming and Squash respectively.

To conclude, on the behalf of everyone in Larmor house we would like to thank Mr Monteith and the form tutors for the hard work they put in during the year in supporting their pupils and we wish everyone another productive and positive year with plenty of success.

Hugo Ellerby & Jack Truesdale
