Dr McHugh's Ice Bucket Challenge

Friday 10th September saw Dr McHugh take part in the Ice Bucket Challenge to raise money for Marie Curie Cancer Care. Students from all year groups paid a sum of money to get the very rare opportunity to throw a bucket of water over the principal's head, raising an amazing £866 in just one afternoon.

The message from Dr McHugh at the start of the video was:

"I thank Gerald for nominating me. We're dedicating all fund raising to Marie curie nurses and wish to thank them for all they have done for members of our school community. I now nominate former Slemish staff members Mark Weir of Strangford College, Tim Manson of Cullybackey College and Richard Smith who is with BT. We would like all past pupils to make a donation to Marie Curie or send their donation to the college and we'll ensure we raise as much money as possible for Marie Curie."
