The Friends of Hugh Christie
The Friends of Hugh Christie are a group of parents, teachers and friends set up to encourage parental involvement in the college. We have organised events such as the successful Summer Event, raised funds for the college, supported the annual Fashion Show and extra curricular activities.
How can you support the Friends of Hugh Christie?
There are a variety of ways to support the Friends of Hugh Christie from donating prizes for raffles and tombolas, buying raffle tickets to lending a hand at events. For those who are able to commit more time why not join the friendly group, we meet approximately once a term at Poult Wood Golf Centre.

We held our AGM at the beginning of the new academic year, thank you to all those who attended.
For this next year we have tried to put together a mixture of activities to promote the school and provide funds for the students.
In the past, we have given money to various departments including, the PE department for netball dresses, the library for a variety of resources, SCIPS (a lunch time club) for games, the ICT department for new microphones and computer software. This year, we are hoping to buy some much-needed goal posts as well as continue to provide funds for the library.
Autumn Showcase at Hugh Christie
On Wednesday November 21st and Thursday November 22nd 2012 the first Autumn Showcase took place at Hugh Christie Technology College. This community project has grown out of the annual Fashion Show, which started in 2008.
The aim of the project is to bring together students from various schools to help to boost their confidence and self esteem. This year over 80 students took part in the show, which was a miscellany of the Arts.
The Showcase was a great success and all the students who took part gave an excellent performance and certainly showed enormous talent.
