Congratulations to Lucy Smyth (Form I), who won the competition to be Principal of Belfast Royal Academy on Wednesday 20th November. This competition was to promote the 30th anniversary of the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child.
As part of her new role, Lucy led the Staff Briefing, visited a number of classrooms and also implemented the following rules:
- All teachers were expected to play their favourite song at the start of each lesson (dancing was optional).
- When homework was set, this had to be sung by the class teacher, or by performing charades. Failure to do so resulted in the pupils being exempt from completing the homework.
- Form I pupils were allowed out 10 minutes early at lunch.
Mrs Woods became Lucy for the day and participated in Lucy’s Music and Chemistry classes.
