OPEN NIGHT: 10TH JANUARY 2018


Last May, Lisneal College made the Irish News Top 50 non selective schools in Northern Ireland for 2015/16. Making no. 45 was an amazing achievement, but we stated that we wanted even more. In 2016/17 our 5 A*-C GCSE (with English and maths) exam performance increased by a MASSIVE 12% to take us 14% higher than the NI Average for all ability schools! This year we could even reach the Top 25. Join the Evolution! Come along to our OPEN NIGHT on 1O JANUARY 7PM.

ANOTHER SPORTING SUCCESS


HUGE congratulations to Year 9 pupil Nathan on being selected for the Ireland Under 14 Cricket squad. Nathan is a super cricketer who can bowl, bat and field equally well. We are sure that Nathan has a big future ahead of him! Well done again Nathan! Owzat for a talent?

WELL DONE SOPHIE!


Year 8 pupil, Sophie was announced as the winner of the Christmas truffle box design competition held by Mrs McHugh with her year 8 Home Economics class .

EVERYBODY ACTIVE EVENT


22 of our absolutely fabulous year 8 #TeamLisneal girls took part in the “Everybody Active” (EBA) event held in Foyle Arena last week. This event was funded by Derry City & Strabane District Council and facilitated by the EBA coaching staff with the overall aim of encouraging females to get active and try new sporting activities.
The event afforded the girls the opportunity to try some new physical activities, namely; wheelchair basketball, boccia, ultimate frisbee, dance and for those brave enough, the climbing wall. Our girls fully participated in every activity and were great representatives of the school on the day.

KIND HEARTED PUPILS


Our Prince’s Trust class were delighted to present a cheque to a representative from the N.I Children’s Hospice that visited us this morning. She was over the moon to collect the money that they raised from their bake sale held in school last week. We are forever proud of the kind and caring nature of so many of our #TeamLisneal pupils.

SO PROUD OF OUR KATIE


We are delighted to announce that year 9 pupil, Katie, has won the ‘Talent 2030 Competition’ for her superb essay written about Dr. Ann Tsukamoto. Katie was set the task of writing about a female engineer/scientist or innovator that inspires her and her blog about this female scientist and stem cell researcher has certainly made an impression. Congratulations to Katie from everyone at #TeamLisneal. We are all very proud of your wonderful achievement.

KS3 LOVE FOR LIFE


On Thursday 16th November our year 9 and year 10 pupils participated in a ‘Love for Life’ workshop in a very mature and respectful manner. This workshop helped our pupils in a pastoral sense as it focused on the characteristics of healthy and happy relationships and improved their understanding of the importance of making responsible choices in adolescence. We were delighted at the wonderful participation of all of the pupils who attended. Well done! #TEAMLISNEAL
