Our AMAZING Green Team often remind us of the LC6 Core Values that we expect our #TEAMLISNEAL pupils to exhibit. RESPONSIBILITY and TEAMWORK were both at the heart of their work yesterday as they worked together to purchase and decorate containers that can be used to recycle plastic bottles and paper in our classrooms. The Green Team are trying to come up with ways to reduce the amount of waste that we produce within school and are providing and servicing these containers for any teacher that wants to take part. #MAKINGADIFFERENCE
Mr Allen was delighted to welcome year 8 pupil Lauren back to school following her recent trip to Cincinnati. Whilst there she thoroughly enjoyed competing in the gymnastics tournament and did herself and everyone at #TEAMLISNEAL proud by returning with yet another trophy to add to her ever growing collection. Lauren has worked so hard and has proven that dedication and commitment really are key to success. #WEARELISNEAL #PROUDASPUNCH
Our Student Council are working hard to strengthen the PUPIL VOICE within #TEAMLISNEAL. They are aiming to choose one special charity for our school community to support throughout 2018 and are eager to consult and involve everyone in making this important decision. This week Emily, Holly and Leah took morning assembly to present 8 potential charities to their peers. All pupils will be given the chance to vote on the charity that they would most like to support, allowing everyone to have their say. #WEARELISNEAL
WOW – Don’t our NEW SCHOOL HOUSE BANNERS look amazing?

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.
