Many congratulations goes to our Science Department on representing Northern Ireland at the STEM LEARNING UK Enthuse awards held in the Houses of Parliament in London. The awards recognise commitment to developing STEM subjects and inspiring young people through excellence in learning and teaching. Head of Science, Mr Louden and Mr Allen attended the awards, and it was a very proud moment to hear ‘Lisneal College’ announced as the NI secondary schools’ representatives. Unfortunately we did not win the UK award, but we are very proud of our Science Department teachers and technician.
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
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
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
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
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 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.
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.
Well done to all the lovely ladies who represented #TeamLisneal yesterday at the Annual Foyle Hospice Female Walk/Run. Our pupils and staff are always so generous and giving of their time when it comes to supporting local community events. WEARELISNEAL
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. WEARELISNEAL
