Congratulations to our Junior Magistrates’ team who won the Northern Ireland Mock Trial Court Competition in Laganside Court on Saturday 9th March.  The team were exemplary and their preparation and dedication to the competition was highly commended by the officiating judge.

They were up against St. Dominic’s girls’ grammar school and Portora Royal School, Enniskillen.  The judges were really impressed with the Foyle team and we won by a considerable points margin.

Is there a future in electric cars?

Is there a future in electric cars?

On Wednesday the 6th of March year 14 Technology & Design students travelled to the Titanic Quarter in Belfast to take part in a debate involving the future of electric cars replacing the need for diesel/petrol vehicles. Ross Frazer won a prize for outstanding contribution for writing a witty poem for their presentation in which they had to debate the perspective of young people. The highlight of the day was being allowed to test drive electric cars as well as impressive mentalist tricks from BBC1’s David Meade.

Cross Country

The Cross Country Club has gone from strength to strength since its formation in September.

Meeting on Wednesday afternoons on the Junior School Hockey pitch from 3.45-4.45pm, we have a varied training programme. After our stretches we warm up by doing some interval training – 2 mins jogging, 2 mins running, 2 mins brisk walk, repeating the cycle over the course of 10/12 mins.

In addition to this we have an extended run and a weekly competition between 2 teams. Lately our competitions have been relay races as we are beginning to turn our focus to short distance sprinting in preparation for track events.

Annie World Record

17 Junior school pupils joined the five and half thousand participants in Ebrington Square on Saturday 2nd March to beat the world record for the biggest song and dance routine from the musical ‘Annie’. Our students sang and danced along to the well-known song ‘It’s a hard knock life’ while raising money for the Foyle Hospice. This was a great event which all of the students enjoyed being part of, well done to all that helped break the world record.
