Happy World Book Day from Foyle College! This year, each Year 8 pupil created a character mask, depicting a fiction character on the mask side and a review of their chosen novel on the inside. A special well done to Darwyn, Jack and Jessica, whose masks were selected as winners!
It is safe to say our Year 12s loved ‘Blood Brothers’ at Millennium Forum Theatre & Conference Centre. Thank you to Mags from Education at the Forum for arranging an invaluable Q&A with the cast afterwards; Conaill Long and Nathan Fraser were fantastic interviewers! We have no doubt that the live production will have proved hugely beneficial to both our GCSE Drama and English Literature students.
Our Year 8 pupils are currently participating in the Irish News Young News Readers’ project, funded by our generous PTFA committee. The crossover Literacy and LLW unit of work allows our pupils to closely engage with current affairs, both locally and globally, and the language and presentational features used within print newspaper articles. 8B thoroughly enjoyed their interactive activities during LLW!
We had a busy day in school today as we hosted the Western Health and Social Care Trust’s Allied Healthcare Careers Event. We welcomed pupils from schools across the North West to find out more about careers within the NHS. Our thanks to Anne Love, Volunteer Manager for the WHSCT, and all the health professionals who so willingly gave up their time to provide this amazing opportunity for our students.
