Filming at Lisneal College

Check out this super photo of some of our pupils with the cast of the film ‘A Bump Along the Way’. Aimee, Lucie, Jessica, Chloe, Dylan, Ayren and Rachel played the main characters’ classmates and they did a brilliant job. Thanks to the cast and crew for their kindness! #WEARELISNEAL

PSC Interim Reports

Our pupils recently received their PSC Interim Report – their first for the 2018/19 school year. These reports provide pupils, parents and teachers with the opportunity to celebrate success, set targets and monitor progress throughout the year. Congratulations to all of our pupils who achieved PRAISES IN EVERY SINGLE SUBJECT in their report. All P’s signifies an exceptional attitude to learning across the board with the focus and determination required for maximum achievement. To those pupils who didn’t achieve all praises: work hard and get it next time. You can do it!

Rewarding Positive Behaviour

This afternoon our year 8 and 9 pupils who received ALL PRAISES in their PSC Interim Reports were excused from their period 9 lessons and treated to a little down time with their friends. It was fantastic to see so many of our junior pupils enjoying a more relaxed Friday afternoon with plenty of sweet treats, music and even a little background dancing from Mrs Smith to keep everyone happy. We are thrilled that so many of our pupils did so well in their first pastoral report of the 2018/19 academic year – keep up the effort!

Siege Museum Workshop

WOW. Year 9 pupils enjoyed a Siege Museum Workshop this week – bringing to life much of what they have been learning in recent history lessons. The pupils were treated to a ‘boom’ing performance as our special guests re-enacted scenes from the siege dressed in full costume. It is amazing that our city had such an influence on life in Britain and Europe as a result of the Apprentice Boys closing the gate on the Jacobites. We thoroughly enjoyed the perfomances and the history lesson, so thank you to the Siege Museum and Miss Bell for putting this together! #WEARELISNEAL

U12 Football Success

Wednesday was a busy day of football for #TeamLisneal. Our Under 12 side triumphed over Castlederg High School with a 5-1 win in the 2nd round of the NI Schools’ Cup. After ending the 1st half all square at 1-1, our stars switched into top gear and ran out eventual winners. Mr Ferguson said, “The turning point in the game was a superb save by goalkeeper Lealand McElwee. If he hadn’t have stretched out to guide the ball around the post, things may have been much different. Sam Stott also put in a brilliant display at the back”. A hat-trick from Jack Curran, a goal from Lewis Loughlin and another from Harley Muir, with his first touch on his debut, ensured #TeamLisneal is in the draw for the next round. Well done to everyone involved!

Shared Choir Rehearsal

Today our amazing SHARED CHOIR, made up of singers from Lisneal College, St. Cecilia’s College and St. Mary’s College, sang beautifully together during a rehearsal on Day 2 of Northern Ireland’s 1st ever Shared Education Week. They have been practising ahead of their special performance on Friday at our ‘Where To Next Event’ which will close Shared Education Week in Northern Ireland. WE CAN’T WAIT! #SharedEducation #SharingWorks #WEARELISNEAL

U18 Northern Ireland Cup

Today our U18 boys football team played a match at home against Rathmore Grammar School, Belfast, in Round 1 of the U18 Northern Ireland Cup. Whilst the boys were narrowly defeated in this high energy match, they played with skill, passion and determination and did themselves proud. Well done boys on a great performance and for the sportsmanship shown throughout.

Girls Football Training

It was just fantastic to see so many of our year 8 girls join the year 9 and 10s for Football training after school today. This group of girls are practising really hard in their weekly training sessions and we can see a great improvement in their confidence and skills as they train. Keep it up girls! #PROUDASPUNCH

Year 8 Shared Education Begins

Mr Allen was delighted to welcome year 8 pupils from St. Mary’s and St. Cecilia’s into Lisneal College yesterday for their first Shared Education experience. We hope the pupils enjoyed their induction and look forward to seeing much more of them this year. Many thanks to Mrs McAvoy for all the wonderful work that she continues to do to give our pupils the best shared learning experiences possible. #WEARELISNEAL
