Lisneal Cadet Put Skills To The Test

Earning honours after a gruelling forty hours of tough physical and mental challenge in the recent Northern Ireland Army Cadet Force Military Skills Competition is Lisneal College student Jordan.

Jordan who is an accomplished Cadet Sergeant in the College’s Army Cadet Force Detachment earned third place in a hard-fought contest for Best Section Commander in the annual event in which Cadet teams from across Northern Ireland compete in a range of military skills, including First Aid, command tasks, fieldcraft, signals, skill at arms and observation. Jordan was a member of the 1st Battalion B Company team which clinched second place in the March competition and third place overall.

After an exciting weekend, Jordan is pictured receiving congratulations from Colonel Lindsay, Deputy Commander, 38 (Irish) Brigade … and, of course, the Royal Irish Regiment’s mascot, the ever-popular Brian Boru X, pictured with his handler.

Well done Jordan! Superb achievement. A born leader!

Relay for Life -Cancer Research

At Friday breaktime the staff enjoyed a feast of cakes, buns and tray-bakes. Tough work we know; however, it was all for for a great cause. All the money raised will be donated to the Relay for Life- Cancer Research UK charity. #TeamLisneal is also entering a team for the 24 hour relay being held on 23 June in St Columb’s Park, so we would be grateful for your support for the event.

Our superstar Spanish teachers have done it again. Just look at the fantastic ‘Days of the Week’ display Amy, Emily, Megan and Morgan made for their Spanish pupils in Cumber Claudy Primary School.
