Year 10 pupils learn more about the events of 1916

As part of their investigation of events during the Decade of Centenaries, all Foyle College Year 10 pupils visited the Somme Heritage Centre. They learned about the Irish contribution in World War One.  

At least 70 Foyle College old boys lost their lives in the Great War – many of them at the Somme.  In History lessons, pupils have been investigating the events of 1916 – particularly the Easter Rising and the Battle of the Somme and have gained a greater understanding of the complex nature of Irish politics at this time.

 Six Foyle pupils have also been involved in the Journey Together Project with 11 other local schools, where they have explored the controversial issues surrounding commemoration of important centenaries.

Year 12 Hospitality

Year 12 Hospitality pupils presented a cheque today to Mrs Sharon Devine from Foyle Women’s Aid.

The girls raised £150 from by organising a school function for staff as part of their GCSE Hospitality course.

Well done to all involved!

Tree of Knowledge

Year 12 had a very motivating presentation by Ben Best (Tree of Knowledge) called 'laugh in the face of exams'.  The aim was to promote the development of a positive mindset towards handling the pressures over the next few weeks.  The Year 12 had some very positive feedback on it:

"Tree of Knowledge has helped me to understand I am not limited by what others think I should do and to not set 'reasonable' targets but to aim for what I really want."

"It has helped me to think more about my future and how my brain works at stressful times like exams"

"Tree of knowledge has helped me to realise what I want to be and the fact it won't be easy to get there, you have to believe in what you think and not feed off other people."

"Tree of knowledge has helped me to understand that to think positively you need to be positive.  I now realise that anything is achievable.  I am educated about exam stress and the steps which need to be taken in order for me to succeed."

Dancing at Lughnasa

Congratulations to our GCSE Drama class on their excellent production of Brian Friel's famous 'Dancing at Lughnasa' for their moderation. Their use of voice, movement and facial expressions were effective and engaging as they transported the audience back to rural Donegal in the 1930s. 

The pupils worked tirelessly to design and craft a minimalist composite set to accurately portray the genre of realism. Their production was also enhanced by the use of voiceovers, music and background images to fully set the scene and add a real sense of professionalism.
