OUR REMEMBRANCE SERVICE – On Friday 10th November the staff and pupils of Lisneal College paid tribute to those who fought and died so that we can enjoy our freedom today. The focus of our Remembrance Service was on a teenage soldier who joined the battlefield of World War 1. The audience at our service learned about John Condon from Waterford, who was killed in Belgium at only 14 years of age. Our choir sang ‘John Condon’ beautifully and our students were incredibly dignified and respectful throughout. Many thanks to Mrs Flanagan, Ms Pender and Tina for their support and wonderful accompaniment on the piano and guitar. #WEARELISNEAL
On Sunday 12th November, our Head Boy and Head Girl, Joshua and Leah, attended the remembrance day service held at the cenotaph in the Diamond. Leah and Joshua laid a poppy wreath on behalf of Lisneal College in memory of those who gave everything so that we have the freedoms we enjoy today. Many thanks to Mr White for organising our attendance and representing our school. We were delighted to stand alongside Mr P Allen, and the Head Boy and Head Girl from Foyle College throughout the service. Lisneal pupils formed a significant part of the remembrance service whilst representing the Army Cadet Force, Combined Cadet Force, Boys’ Brigade, Cathedral Youth Club and William King Memorial FB, to name but a few. Well done to everyone involved. WE WILL REMEMBER THEM.
