Yr10 Seagate Science Conference 2019

“A group of Yr10 pupils enjoyed the annual Seagate Science Conference at St Mary’s College last Friday. A range of interactive science based workshops were available to engage pupils with  science skills relating them to locally based careers.  Pupils enjoyed ‘Something Fishy’ looking in depth at fish are built to survive, finding out how firefighters in the NI Fire Service understand the science to control fires and consideration of ipods and floating trains to find out how magnetism is used in modern technology.”

Holocaust Memorial Trust Event

 

Holocaust Memorial Trust Event - remembering genocides.

We had the honour of welcoming Safet Vukalić, a Bosnian Muslim who survived persecution in Bosnia in the 1990s, to Foyle College today.

Safet addressed our Year 11 - 14 History students and students from St. Cecilia's College and St. Patrick's and St. Brigid's College.

This event is part of the lead up to Holocaust Memorial Day 2020. It takes place on January 27, and next year will mark the 75th anniversary of the liberation of the Auschwitz-Birkenau concentration camp in 1945 and July 2020 will mark 25 years since the genocide in Srebrenica,
