HUGE congratulations to Katie who has won 2nd place in the Sloane McClay Awards 2019 based on her combined marks in GCSE Biology, Chemistry, Physics and Mathematics. Outstanding!
Congratulations to Jessica in Year 8, Josie in Year 9 and Abie in Year 10, pictured with Mr. Guthrie, Headmaster of Ebrington Primary, who announced them as winners of the Christmas tree decorating competition. Well done to all three girls for their hard work! They each won a £15 Foyleside voucher for their efforts.
On 22nd November 1963, President John F. Kennedy was assassinated. At the U.S. Naval Base in Londonderry, where our school now stands, Frank Ekstrom raised the American flag as a mark of respect after the assassination.
Today Frank returned to raise the flag with the help of some of our Year 14 History students and members of the School Archive Team. It was an honour to welcome Frank to Foyle College today and to hear his recollections of his time in Londonderry.
“Another exciting Yr8 Science focus week at Foyle College! – Pupils had the opportunity to sign up to a wide range of science based activities with rat dissections, sports science, bug hunts and rocket making to name a few of the lunchtime workshops on offer alongside site visits to the Lough’s agency and ‘The Lycra Company’ at Maydown. The visit form ‘World of Owls’ with the ‘Amazing Animal roadshow’ was informative and enjoyed by both pupils and staff. Please click on the link below to see more photos of the week’s events.”
