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
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!
Facilitated by Tara Mills on Friday 12th October
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!
