Major success for local school at Loughry Awards Day

Date published: 24 July 2017

The recent Awards Day at CAFRE, Loughry Campus saw nine former pupils of Drumglass High School Dungannon graduate together!

Former Drumglass High School pupils Jason Cairns, Jill Barrett and Lynsey Watt capture their delight at the CAFRE Awards Day.

The successful students completed programmes ranging from BTEC National Diplomas to BSc (Hons) Degrees.

With 98% of CAFRE students either gaining employment or taking a next step in education within six months of graduation, these students are likely to find themselves embarking on exciting careers in the food industry.

Peter Simpson, Course Manager CAFRE commented: “Loughry attracts students from all parts of Northern Ireland to its Further and Higher Education programmes. We’re delighted that the success of the agri-food Sector is also catching the eye of local pupils.”
