Pictured are our Yr8 PUPILS OF THE MONTH for February. As a reward for this excellent achievement their Head of Year took them to McDonalds for their lunch, along with their class captains and prefects. Very well done to you all.
This afternoon we welcomed guest speaker, Shaun Roddy from CAMHS (Child & Adolescence Mental Health Services), into our school to speak to our Yr12 pupils about the impact that Drugs and Alcohol can have on Mental Health. He was incredibly knowledgable about the need to protect mental health in adolescence and we want to thank him for sharing this important message with our pupils. This was a fantastic close to Health Promotion Week at #TeamLisneal.
What a way to spend a Friday afternoon. Our Yr8 pupils just loved working with Clay in their Art lesson earlier on today and Mrs McCorkell was full of praise for the artistic skills that they were able to showcase in this practical lesson. The TALENT of our pupils never ceases to amaze us at #TeamLisneal
Day 3 of Health Promotion Week at our school. This afternoon we welcomed Conor McCafferty from ZEST into school to speak to our senior pupils about their ‘Emotional Health and Wellbeing’. We wish to thank him for taking the time to share his expertise with our pupils who are now much more in tune with how they can manage their thoughts and feelings. LIKE NO OTHER.
This morning a group of Yr12 girls from Lisneal had the opportunity to listen to inspirational stories from successful local women. Accountants, teachers, solicitors and business owners all shared their stories, talking about their journey towards success and the need for perseverance and determination. Many thanks to St. Cecelia’s for the invitation and warm welcome that they offered our pupils and also to Deborah O’Donnell for organising this uplifting event.
St. John’s Ambulance were with us today, delivering ‘First Aid Health and Safety Training’ to our Yr11 pupils. This course covered first aid basics such as CPR, choking and bleeding, allowing pupils the chance to learn vital life saving skills by improving their knowledge and confidence. A special word of thanks goes to Tom, Peter, Judith and Katie from St. John’s for sharing their expertise with our pupils on ‘Day 2 of our Health Promotion Week’.
On Monday we welcomed Sandra Semple into school to deliver a ‘Skin Cancer Awareness’ talk to Sixth Form pupils. The girls were suprised to learn about the dangers of using sun beds and the risks that come with overexposure of skin to the sun. Many thanks to Susan for raising awareness of this health issue – a great start to HEALTH PROMOTION WEEK at Lisneal College.
During the week Mr Allen received this letter praising our amazing pupil Kerri-Lynn. We are just so proud of her and want to share it with you.
The letter stated:
“I would like to thank you for allowing your pupil, Kerri-Lynn Cooke, to attend Foyle Women’s Information Network’s book launch on March 1st 2017. Kerri-Lynn spoke extremely well at the event and was a credit to her school. We very much appreciated having her attend”.
Kerri-Lynn addressed the large audience and spoke with real confidence- something that many adults find difficult. Well done Kerri-Lynn on your achievement. #aspiration
BREAKING NEWS – We are delighted to announce that our U12 Rugby team had a further victory today at the Northern Area Qualifiers and are now through to the finals, due to be held in Lurgan next week. Well done to our lads on their terrific performance. What a way to round off a fantastic week for Yr8 sport at #TeamLisneal
We are all learners and we are all teachers. On Friday pupils transferring to Lisneal College from Eglinton Primary School joined our Year 8 Maths class to help us learn more about the transition from KS2 to KS3. The P7 pupils were joined by Ms Crooks, VP and P7 teacher in Eglinton PS. This work is really helping us to improve and develop teaching to maximise achievement. As usual our pupils were amazingly welcoming and the P7 pupils were so impressive. Mr Johnston also enjoyed every minute. To be the best takes innovation. #TeamLisneal #FirstNeverFollows
