Foyle College raises £1630 for the Merryn Lacy Trust Fund.

A number of pupils from Foyle College’s Health Committee photographed presenting Mrs Allen with a cheque for £1630 for the Merryn Lacy Trust Fund. This fantastic amount of money was raised through non-uniform day donations, canteen bucket collections and a very successful bun sale at the  end of the Spring term.

Five year old Merryn Lacy (whose mum is a past pupil of Foyle College) was diagnosed with Neuroblastoma last year and has been undergoing treatment since then. Merryn’s family are delighted with the money raised which will help fund treatment Merryn may need in the future. They wish to thank the pupils, parents and staff of Foyle College for their kindness and great generosity.

GREAT ART AND DESIGN TRIPS

Each year senior school students studying Art and Design regularly get the chance to visit galleries and museums so that they can see and experience a variety of professionally made creative pieces. This year they have so far been out and about to see creative work  shown at The Void Gallery, The Gordon Gallery, The London Street Gallery and the Shirt Factory Gallery.

We also took some students out for the day to visit the Ulster Museum in Belfast. When we were there we got to see and learn from the annual exhibition of GCSE and A level school work and also enjoyed the current exhibition of work which showcased a very broad range of modern artistic approaches.

Happily, in addition to all of this, on a recent visit to the school,  Master John Price took the opportunity to present certificates to some of our creatively gifted students who had successfully shown their photography in London as part of the photography competition organised and funded by the Merchant Taylor’s Company. Very well done to one and all.

Social Innovators

Derryschools take part in Young Social Innovators projects

 

Three schools from the North West took part in a Social Innovators project aimed at making life better for people within their schools/communities.  Each school had to identify a social issue and carry out a research task into the problem and then devise a set of actions to help solve it.  Each school had to submit a 4000 word report on their issue and then go to Belfast City Hall last Wednesday where they took part in a regional ‘Speak Out’ on the issue.  Below is a summary of the projects that the schools were involved in.

 

Hunger Run

A number of students from Foyle College participated in Children in Crossfire’s Hunger Run last Sunday (23rd March) along with Ms Sloane.  The purpose of the Hunger Run was for Children in Crossfire to raise awareness of and vital funds for their nutritional projects in both Ethiopia and Tanzania.  A great day was had by all!  Joel Rosborough finished in fourth place with Jason Nolan, Stephen Walker, Jack Taylor and Kielan Stevenson hot on his heels!  Ms Sloane will be training twice as hard for next year to keep up!!!!  The event was sponsored by Dominoes Pizza who provided a seemingly endless supply of delicious carbs after the race!!
