Yr9 pupils receive their BA Bronze Science Crest Awards which have recently been awarded for the 'Rocket' science project work they completed at the end of last term- the pupils may still have the opportunity to meet Tim Peake at the UK Space Science schools conference in November but will have to wait alittle longer to find out- well done!
Your School Your Business’ is an exciting and engaging way to support the primary-secondary transition and to introduce the incoming Year 8 pupils to Foyle College.
On Thursday 8th September 2016 the Year 8 pupils worked together in groups and were given the opportunity to meet and explore their peers and the roles of staff within their new school.
All Junior School pupils participated in a#somme100 commemoration today, organised by the History Department. Special thanks to Euan Berry, 10E, for the excellent idea!
As part of the PTFA’s fundraising efforts this term, Y8-11 pupils completed a sponsored walk on the morning of Friday, 17th June, from our existing school sites to the new Foyle College site on the Limavady Road, encouraging each pupil to raise £10 in sponsorship for their efforts. Amazingly, they managed to raise £4412!
The route, approved by the PSNI and chaperoned by the staff of Foyle College, involved walking from the Junior School Campus on the Northland Road towards to Senior School Campus, where Y11 pupils began their walk. Pupils proceeded down the Duncreggan Road, crossing at the Strand Road junction towards the Embankment’s pedestrianized quayside path. Crossing at the Peace Bridge, pupils walked through Ebrington Parade and St Columb’s Park, before having a well-deserved break in Foyle Arena, where refreshments were supplied.
Thank you for your generosity!
Congratulations to the two Yr8 teams who presented their poster presentations at Scifest today. Scifest Northwest and the ‘Big Bang near me’ program entertained the Yr8 STEM group with a Science show, MAD IT workshop and a series of exhibitions from local industry. There were over 40 projects presented at the competition. Both teams enjoyed the experience of talking to three sets of judges about the projects they have been working at during the term. One of our teams: Jakob Fielding, Molly Hannaway and Mary Demirova were placed 1st in their chosen category winning the ‘Discover Space Award’.
Learn to Earn - Young Enterprise Seminar, Wednesday 22nd June 2016
'Learn To Earn' is an engaging and thought provoking Young Enterprise programme, that challenges Year 11 pupils to make the connection between education, training and employment.
Pupils engaged in a variety of different activities such as 'Who am I?', 'Who is successful?' and playing the 'Success' board game. These activities helped them understand how the learning and training opportunities available in school and the decisions they make now will influence their future careers and their happiness in later life.
