Tyndall Schools Lecture 2018

 

Year 12 Physics students attended the annual Tyndall Schools Lecture this week, in the company of 200 pupils from visiting schools. ‘The Physics of the Circus’ was presented by James Soper, juggler and uni-cycler extraordinaire!

Year 11 Examinations February-March 2018

On each morning, report to your form room for registration. Then, report to the sports hall at the time shown in the first column for each exam – 9.05 for the morning session, 11.35 for the midday session and 1.40 for the afternoon session.

Any gap between this time and the start of the exam can be spent preparing and revising. Pupils entitled to extra time will be given this through added time at the start and/or end of the sessions. Art & Design and Music exams will be in their respective classrooms.

If you do not have an exam in a session, then you may revise at home. If you choose to prepare in school, then you are to use the study hall for revision when there is a gap in your schedule. You must sign out, at the office, if you are going home after an exam.

You must plan to be present for all your papers – the real GCSE exams have very strict rules regarding this and we are trying to make our school exams as realistic as possible. If you are ill and unable to attend, you should contact the school to make alternative arrangements.

Young Writers’ “Stranger Sagas”

Congratulations to our sixty-seven Key Stage 3 pupils who have been selected for publication in the upcoming Young Writers’ “Stranger Sagas” collection. With over 40,000 entries nationally, it was essential that each of their 100 words were chosen carefully!

We are sure you will agree that each of our budding writers deserve recognition and we cannot wait to proudly showcase their published work in our new Library!

Holocaust Memorial Day

It was an honour to be involved in the regional event to mark Holocaust Memorial Day in the Millennium Forum on Thursday 25th January. At the event victims of the Holocaust and subsequent genocides were remembered through poetry, music and the reflections of survivors.

Our Head Girl, Erika McClelland, who is also a Holocaust Educational Trust ambassador gave a speech about our links with Edith Birkin. Edith is a Holocaust survivor who attended Londonderry High School. She has published a book of poetry and art about her experiences during the war.

Our Head Boy, Matthew Austin, read Edith Birkin's poem "Roll Call".

Work by Foyle pupils was displayed, alongside Edith Birkin's artwork, in the foyer of the Millennium Forum and a copy of her book was presented to the school by fellow Holocaust survivor Dr Martin Stern.
