PSNI Road Safety

Stuart Crutchley, PSNI Road Safety branch, delivered a presentation to our Year 13 pupils outlining the importance of driving safely.A combination of videos, facts related to careless driving, firsthand accounts of accidents and hard hitting questions helped to provide Year 13 with practical advice for their future driving.

A startling message to all of our young drivers is that 95+% of crashes where someone is killed or seriously injured are due to human error.Sincere thanks to Stuart for facilitating this extremely beneficial presentation

Amazing Brains

Year 11 pupils participated in ‘The Drive for Results’ seminar which is aimed primarily at GCSE students.  During this workshop they worked through practical, meaningful and relevant activities, allowing them to develop the study techniques and strategies essential for success at GCSE.

Local Democracy Week

The middle school council had the opportunity to debate with local MLAs about issues pertinent to Derry.  Some of the topics discussed were the expansion of Magee College, cuts in education and the impact on youth in the city, addressing mental health and anti-social behaviour.

NEXUS Internet Safety Presentation

Foyle College's PTFA welcomed parents and guardians to an informative presentation from Mary McLaughlin, a NEXUS representative, who presented an alarming account of the dangers associated with sexting, cyber relationships and online grooming.

Mary delivered real life examples of children and adolescents who were, often innocently, endangered as a result of their online activity.Her advice is that parents should always friend request their children on social media sites, monitoring their online activity and communication.The message for all young people using the Internet is simply: "Online communication should always be suitable dialogue for the family table if you are surfing safely."

A sincere thank you to NEXUS for their informative presentation, one that will be delivered to our Post-16 pupils in the coming weeks.

NEXUS' office is situated on Clarendon Street, where they offer additional guidance and support to members of the community.
