Past pupil inspires New Bridge students

NEW Bridge Integrated College, past pupil, Lee Doran was invited into the College last week to talk to Year 10 pupils during Options Week.

Year 10 pupils are currently choosing their subjects for GCSE and Lee kindly came in to share his experiences as a past pupil and explain how his choices inspired him to follow the route to being a local young successful entrepreneur.

Lee studied A Level Art in New-Bridge Integrated College with a particular focus on the ‘Human Body’. A visit to the ‘Body Worlds Exhibition’ inspired his A Level art work piece. It was the theory preparation on the ‘Human Body’ which proved so interesting to Lee that he went on to complete a HND in Sports Science in Newry. Lee continued his education in Belfast Metropolitan College where he achieved diplomas in Anatomy and Physiology, Sports Massage, Swedish Massage and Health and Safety.

Lee opened his own Sports Injury Clinic five years ago and business has gone from strength to strength. It was his genuine interest in helping people which motivated him open his own clinic and his treatment extends to clients beyond sports injuries to include any type of pain or injury.

Mrs McKeown, Lee’s former Art teacher was delighted that Lee made the time to come in and talk to and inspire her current Year 10 students. Lee was presented with his A Level art piece which has been on display in College and will move to its new home in Lee’s Sports Injury Clinic in Rathfriland Street in Banbridge.
