On-Line Application Home to School Transport

Last year the Authority ran an extended pilot scheme for a number of schools which allowed parents to make applications for transport assistance on-line and receive an initial assessment indicating whether their child / children were eligible for transport assistance.
 
The purpose of this letter is to advise you that it is the Authority’s intention to extend this facility to include all Schools in the Education Authority, both Primary and Post Primary.
 
This means that all transport applications must be made on-line through the EA website
 
 
The on-line application service will be available from:
 
Primary School applications - 2nd May 2017
 
Post Primary School applications - 1st June 2017
 
Parents should be encouraged to apply before the 19th July 2017 as an offer of transport
 
assistance cannot be guaranteed for the 1st September 2017 if they make application after this date.

Foyle PE/Sports Kit

With Foyle College moving to a new single site it was decided to review the branding of the PE kit. When reviewing the kit there were two objectives

1.            A single identity for Foyle Sport.

2.            Ensuring the kit is affordable without affecting the quality.

From July the new Foyle PE/Sports Kit will be available to order through the school website.

More information will follow on pricing and how to order kit. You can keep up to date through the school website and the school social media pages.

 

Ulster Scots Scientists Across Ireland.

Yr8 pupils and primary school pupils from Ebrington PS and Drumahoe PS  enjoyed the Science show from Science 2 Life this week at our Springtown assembly hall . The show has been launched by the Ulster – Scots Agency with an objective to encourage pupils to engage with science by learning about famous Ulster-Scots scientists and inventors.

It proved to be a fun and interactive opportunity to learn about science with pupils participating in experiments which explained the science behind the inventions of famous Ulster-Scots like Harry Ferguson and John Dunlop; and the discoveries of William Thomson, Lord Kelvin, who was the greatest British scientist of the 19th Century.
