Fifty nine pupils participated in transition year and from this group we managed to operate twelve excellent mini companies. They sold their products at parent teacher meetings, craft fairs, carol services and in various different businesses throughout Donegal. Before Christmas they were busy making their products and selling to the public.
On the 27th of October a group from the Royal and Prior travelled to The Bethel Royal School in Uganda on what would end up being a life changing experience for staff and students alike.
In 2008 the five Royal schools in Ulster celebrated their 400th Anniversary. To mark the occasion the schools decided to help fund the building of a secondary school in the Nakasongolaregion of Uganda. This project was in collaboration with an organisation called ‘Fields of Life’. Fields of Life was founded in 1995 by Trevor and Ruth Stevenson and they now have education, agriculture, healthcare and water projects in The Congo, Kenya, Rwanda, Burundi and Uganda.
