The #TeamLisneal Under 14 girls’ soccer team attended an inter school football tournament at Foyle College. The event was very well hosted by the Foyle College A Level Sports Science students as part of their Event Management course.
Under the watchful eye of Coach Glackin the Lisneal girls gathered momentum during the round robin stages securing wins over Foyle College and Thornhill College. 2 wins out of 4 games was enough to tie St Mary’s College on 6 points but a better goal difference saw St Mary’s progressing to the final against St Cecilia’s. Lisneal did go on to take third place overall in the play off with Thornhill. All the girls involved played their part but perhaps mention should go to GK Abbie Brown for some good saves and Katie Hargan who supplied all 4 of Lisneal’s goals. Well done girls and here’s to the rest of the season! #WEARELISNEAL#LIKENOOTHER

Today our year 10 pupils participated in a STEM aware workshop called “Seagate’s: a Slice of Pi”. Throughout the duration of this interactive session the pupils were involved in creating and developing ideas for new inventions using a Raspberry Pi computer. Mrs Gibbons was delighted with the innovative ideas that the pupils came up with and how well they particpated in the activities. Thank you to Seagate and all the STEM Aware team for this inspirational session and to Mrs Gibbons for organising the day for our pupils. #WEARELISNEAL #WEREALLYARETHEBESTYOUKNOW
This morning some of our year 8 pupils travelled to St. Mary’s College for a SHARED EDUCATION LLW lesson. They were delighted to join forces with pupils from both St. Mary’s and St. Cecilia’s to learn more about the factors that shape identity and symbols of diversity in local society. The pupils from all three schools were excellent from start to end – well done to all involved! #TeamLisneal #SharedEducation
Mia 👏👏Mia 👏👏 – Yet another SHOOTING STAR at #TeamLisneal.
Mr Allen was delighted to get talking to Mia upon her return from America. She came back to school with a bag full of trophies and medals having made quite an impression at the gymnastics tournament that she recently attended in Cincinnati. Everyone at #TEAMLISNEAL is delighted for both Mia and her good friend Lauren on their remarkable achievements in this competition and look forward to further celebrations as they continue to persue their passion for gymnastics.
Our AMAZING Green Team often remind us of the LC6 Core Values that we expect our #TEAMLISNEAL pupils to exhibit. RESPONSIBILITY and TEAMWORK were both at the heart of their work yesterday as they worked together to purchase and decorate containers that can be used to recycle plastic bottles and paper in our classrooms. The Green Team are trying to come up with ways to reduce the amount of waste that we produce within school and are providing and servicing these containers for any teacher that wants to take part. #MAKINGADIFFERENCE
Mr Allen was delighted to welcome year 8 pupil Lauren back to school following her recent trip to Cincinnati. Whilst there she thoroughly enjoyed competing in the gymnastics tournament and did herself and everyone at #TEAMLISNEAL proud by returning with yet another trophy to add to her ever growing collection. Lauren has worked so hard and has proven that dedication and commitment really are key to success. #WEARELISNEAL #PROUDASPUNCH
Our Student Council are working hard to strengthen the PUPIL VOICE within #TEAMLISNEAL. They are aiming to choose one special charity for our school community to support throughout 2018 and are eager to consult and involve everyone in making this important decision. This week Emily, Holly and Leah took morning assembly to present 8 potential charities to their peers. All pupils will be given the chance to vote on the charity that they would most like to support, allowing everyone to have their say. #WEARELISNEAL
