FOYLE HOSPICE COPPER HUNT


We recently welcomed Donall Henderson, Foyle Hospice Chief Executive, into Lisneal College. Our Health & Social Care pupils collectively raised money for Foyle Hospice by participating in the Copper Hunt which involved them taking coin boxes home and saving loose change throughout the year. Amy and Hollie were delighted to present Donall with their filled boxes and were keen to acknowledge the great fundraising effort of Yr12 pupil, Shantell Temple, who worked so hard to fill many boxes. Miss Bradley would like to personally thank Shantell for her wonderful effort and contribution made to the Copper Hunt throughout the year. #TeamLisneal COMMUNITY SCHOOL

PROUD AS PUNCH


Yr11 Pupil, Jodie-Lee, had her beautiful long hair cut on Thursday morning by her Grandmother, Valerie, and her closest school friends. Jodie-Lee is kindly donating 12 inches of her hair to ‘The Little Princess Trust’ who will use it to make and provide real hair wigs to children that have sadly lost their own hair as a result of Cancer treatment. There are no words to describe how proud we all are of Jodie-Lee, she is a fantastic ambassador for #TeamLisneal

GEOGRAPHY RIVER STUDY


Year 11 Geography pupils are photographed during their ‘Field Work Study’ to Magilligan, where they completed an ‘Investigation into River Features along the Curly Burn’ as part of their GCSE Controlled Assessment Task. Mrs Gibbons was delighted with her pupils’ wonderful attitudes to their work during this trip and said that they were a credit to #TeamLisneal

READ ON CHALLENGE TOP FUNDRAISERS


WOW – Yr 8 & 9 pupils have recently raised an incredible £1495 for ‘Cancer Fund for Children’ by participating in the Read On Challenge during their English lessons. Very well done to all of our pupils who took part in the challenge, especially to the top fundraisers pictured in this photo. #TeamLisneal BIG SCHOOL BIG HEART

EXTRA-CURRICULAR TEAMWORK


Hannah and Ben were delighted to present their handmade planter to Sophie and Sam, during their visit to Fountain P.S. on Friday afternoon. Sophie and Sam are transferring to us in September and recently took part in our transition induction morning to prepare them for the big move to #TeamLisneal. They were happy to see Mrs Mullan again, recognising her from their taster Geography lesson they had on their induction morning. It is wonderful for us to get to know our brand new pupils ahead of their transition. LIKE NO OTHER

ALICE & ACCELERATED READING SUCCESS


Alice received a very special award today from Mrs Miller for her outstanding level of commitment shown to the Accelerated Reading Programme throughout Yr 8. Alice has read an amazing 6 MILLION WORDS since September and was presented with an engraved glass book as a keepsake and memory of this great achievement.

GEOGRAPHY FIELDWORK


All Yr8 pupils recently took part in Geography fieldwork, based upon the study of their local environment. During this practical experience our pupils learned valuable lessons on how we can be better community citizens. Photographed are some of the fantastic ‘Story Boards’ the pupils created upon reflection of their learning to illustrate their work. #TeamLisneal GEOGRAPHY ROCKS.

GREEN TEAM AND T&D CLUB TEAMWORK


On Friday afternoon some Yr8 & Yr9 members of our ‘Green Team’ and ‘Technology & Design Club’ travelled by mini bus to Ebrington and Eglinton Primary Schools. Upon arrival they were greeted by the principals of each school whom they presented with handmade plant pots, a gift for allowing their pupils to take part in our ‘Transition Induction’ morning earlier on this week. Both principals were very interested to hear how the pots had been made by our pupils and how they had grown and nurtured its contents.

U13 CRICKET FINALISTS


Our U13 Cricket team booked their place in the Slemish Plate FINAL earlier on this week after a narrow 8 run victory played away to Coleraine G.S. Batting first, Lisneal worked incredibly hard to close on 68-5, putting in a disciplined fielding performance to restrict their opponents to 60-8 off their 20 overs.
