We were delighted to hear that our Head Boy, Elliott, represented the community of Limavady at the recent Great Pilgrimage 90 (GP90) which was organised by The Royal British Legion. GP90 was a recreation of the great pilgrimage of 1928 when thousands of relatives of those who fought in WW1 visited the sites where their sons (or daughters), fathers, grandfathers, nephews, uncles and cousins fought and died; so many of whom had no known grave.
Elliott carried the Limavady RBL Standard wearing his cadet uniform and he was the only cadet from N. Ireland who attended.
Mr George Black, the immediate past Chairman of the RBL in N. Ireland paid this tribute to Elliot:
“When you get a young man like Elliott on parade it makes you have hope for the future of remembrance. He is a proud, polite, well mannered, mature and well turned out young man who we all should be very proud of. It was a pleasure to get to know him and a privilege to have been at GP90 with and all the other youth who represented N Ireland youse are a credit to yourselves and your families. Thanks to you all”
Well done, Elliott. An amazing achievement and experience.
We were thrilled to have former pupil Ross in with us today following his selection to the NI Under 18 Wheelchair Basketball squad. Ross was wearing his bronze medal having came third in the most recent tournament. Mr Allen was over the moon to be given a green jersey for our sporting wall of fame. Well done Ross! #PROUDASPUNCH

Congratulations to Jordan on 14 YEARS FULL ATTENDANCE! Amazing! 👏🏻👏🏻
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!
KS3 pupils from Lisneal College and St. Cecilia’s College enjoyed a high quality teaching and learning experience in History.
