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
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.
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
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
A brilliant start to the year for our Year 8 #TeamLisneal football team. Our new stars beat Parkhall College, Antrim 6-1. A great all round team performance topped off by a goal from Sam Stott, 2 goals from Jack Montgomery and a hat trick from Jack Curran ensured #TeamLisneal took the victory. If you’re confused about the kit, don’t be. Parkhall wear similar kit to us so we had to change. Give the team a like- legends in the making. Are you watching José?
Many congratulations to Adam on his numerous achievements gained during the summer months. Adam successfully completed the John Muir award which required him to display a wide range of skills whilst undertaking outdoor activities. Adam is a superb student who gives 100% to #TeamLisneal. Top man!
We were delighted to hear that our Head Boy, Elliott, represented the community of Limavady at the recent Great Pilgrimage 90 (GP90) which was organised by The Royal British Legion. GP90 was a recreation of the great pilgrimage of 1928 when thousands of relatives of those who fought in WW1 visited the sites where their sons (or daughters), fathers, grandfathers, nephews, uncles and cousins fought and died; so many of whom had no known grave.
Elliott carried the Limavady RBL Standard wearing his cadet uniform and he was the only cadet from N. Ireland who attended.
Mr George Black, the immediate past Chairman of the RBL in N. Ireland paid this tribute to Elliot:
“When you get a young man like Elliott on parade it makes you have hope for the future of remembrance. He is a proud, polite, well mannered, mature and well turned out young man who we all should be very proud of. It was a pleasure to get to know him and a privilege to have been at GP90 with and all the other youth who represented N Ireland youse are a credit to yourselves and your families. Thanks to you all”
Well done, Elliott. An amazing achievement and experience.
We were thrilled to have former pupil Ross in with us today following his selection to the NI Under 18 Wheelchair Basketball squad. Ross was wearing his bronze medal having came third in the most recent tournament. Mr Allen was over the moon to be given a green jersey for our sporting wall of fame. Well done Ross! #PROUDASPUNCH
