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. Many thanks to Mrs McCrudden, Mrs McAvoy and Mrs Gibbons for their hard work in getting this all together. #WEARELISNEAL
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. We’re sure you’ll agree that the girls are excellent ambassadors for Lisneal College and we know that the children and staff of Cumber Claudy have been so impressed with the quality of the girls’ teaching. Once again we are #proudaspunch #masqueuncolegio
Year 8 pupil Kurtis is going from strength to strength in football and took not one but two medals that he has recently won into school today. It took A LOT of persuasion to get Kurtis to pose for this photo, so please be sure to give him a like! #WEARELISNEAL #WellDoneKurtis

On Monday our FAB U14 hockey team played a friendly against Foyle College to mark the finish to their season of training. The girls put on an amazing performance in very windy conditions and were delighted to finish 2-0 winners with goals scored by Sarah Hargan and Sophie Linton. This team have got such great potential for next year. Thanks goes to Foyle College for hosting the match and for the warm welcome they gave our girls.
This morning we welcomed a camera crew from RTE into a year 8 Shared Education LLW lesson that we were hosting. The gentlemen were filming a piece on the 20th Anniversary of the Good Friday Agreement and were interested in how shared education is used to promote community relations, reconciliation and attainment. The report was shown that evening on RTE news where Mr Allen featured to put forward his views on the benefits of shared education.

Our Student Council recently ran a competition for their peers to see who could offer the best suggestion as to how the pupil experience at Lisneal College can be further improved. There were lots of great ideas put forward from pupils across all year groups. The two best suggestions were made by Peter and Kali and we hope to act upon their ideas in the near future by installing a change machine in school and coat hooks in form rooms. The Student Council wish to thank all pupils who took part in the competition and will consider all ideas in time.
#PROUDASPUNCH to have a hall full of pupils who achieved all praises in their 3rd pastoral report of the 2017/18 academic year. The PSC reports were distributed in school during registration this morning and it was a credit to our pupils that SO MANY of them had praises for their excellent attitudes to learning in every single subject. Each pupil was given an Easter egg as a reward but we don’t imagine that too many of the eggs will make it home this afternoon to be shared with the mums and dads as they were all munching away the minute they were given out. ENJOY!
