Africa Day at RBAI

Year 9 at RBAI enjoyed discovering more about Africa in a series of presentations on the theme of Africa. These included a keynote assembly by Alfred Abolarin from the African and Caribbean Support Organisation of Northern Ireland.

Jonathan Edwards and the Olympic torch visit Inst

Torch ThumbSome lucky Year 8s and Year 9s had the opportunity to meet Jonathan Edwards on the front lawn of the school!  Jonathan Edwards was in N Ireland to promote the Olympics 2012 and Inst was the only school he visited.

He had a busy day in the province, but he was more than happy to answer questions, sign Homework Diaries and pose for photographs.
