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

WELL DONE, SHINE BRIGHT!


A MASSIVE well done goes to our Young Enterprise Team, Shine Bright, on their very successful trading experience during the week at Ulster Bank. Word has it that they sold all of their stock and are now under pressure to start reproducing their Santa signs and snowflakes for the steady flow of orders that are coming into school. Many thanks goes to Charlene, the Bank Manager of this branch, who was very welcoming and encouraging of our pupils. Thanks also goes to Ms Pender for the continuous support that she offers this wonderful group of #TEAMLISNEAL pupils. WeAreLisneal
