Drumragh Integrated College aims to promote sporting excellence across a range of activities.
Our college engages in an exciting project that provides students the opportunity to investigate, research play and grow together using games and local sports. The project supports our school’s sports development and our integrated status. Through our integrated status we believe it is vital to take on opportunities such as this to promote a shared learning. Currently at the school we engage in all curricular sports including Soccer, Gaelic Football, Rugby, Athletics, Hockey, Netball, Tennis, Show jumping, Swimming and Cross Country.
Under the direction of Mr Molloy and Mr Woods the programme offered students the opportunity to research local history relating to GAA, Soccer and Rugby. Students explored how clubs in Omagh and beyond were formed and the importance of these sports in our schools and community.
Our 4G pitch is now twinned with Flanders PeaceField in Belgium, the site of the 1914 First World War, Christmas Truces. Drumragh Integrated College is proud to have the first designated Peace Pitch in the Tyrone area, a visual reminder that sport can unite young people from diverse communities.
We were delighted to welcome Mr Shaun McBride, Chair of Drumragh Integrated College Board of Governors, Mr Kevin Murnaghan, President of Omagh Accies Rugby Club, Mr Martin Woodhead, Proprietor of Active 2 Sports Shop and Mr Darren McGuigan, Omagh Accies Youth Development Officer to the College on Wednesday, October 26th for our Celebration Ceremony and official unveiling of our new 4G Peace Pitch.
