New Driver NI

This morning, Stephen Savage from New Driver NI delivered a presentation aimed at 17 years olds who are about the begin driving.Stephen reminded the pupils of the pledge they should make to themselves each time they get behind the wheel, to always

- drive SLOW

- drive SOBER- SECURE all passengers

- put mobile devices on SILENT - have SHARP vision

This, coupled with real life accounts of tragic teenage road deaths, proved to be an informative and worthwhile experience. We thank Stephen for his time and the excellent resources he distributed to our pupils.

Voice of the Future

The annual Junior Chamber Voice of the Future event took place last night in the Northern Ireland Science Park.  Voice of the Future is broken up in to two categories (13-15 & 16-18) and Foyle College had highly confident participants in both; Chloe McCarter (Year 9), Jason Nolan (Year 14) and Blake Gray (Year 14).

Special congratulations to Blake Gray who was a winner in his section, presenting an engaging speech entitled 'Derry City is a great place to start a business'.Well done to all involved and a special thank you to Chris Gray, Junior Chamber President, for continuing to organise this enjoyable event.

Mandarin Language Course

Last year, a number of Lower and Upper Sixth pupils were given the opportunity to study a ten-week course in basic Mandarin as part of the Confucius Classroom scheme.  The teachers, Liu Fang and Pi Wenli, who delivered teaching in Chinese language and culture were seconded from Hanban in China to the University of Ulster. 
 
It looked like an interesting course and it was something that hadn’t been offered at Foyle College. We learnt basic phrases and words like how to introduce yourself and talk about your family. It was an interesting approach to learning the language as we used not only PowerPoints but also songs to help us remember words.
