Famine Friday!

On Friday 2nd June Foyle College Junior School students participated in Famine Friday!  This event saw some students  voluntarily giving up a meal or two during the weekend.  The  purpose of this event was to have empathy with young people in Africa who very often go without food on a daily basis.  We were delighted to welcome Father  Miningi from Tanzania to give a talk in assembly to the students.  He informed them of the hardship faced by people their age in Tanzania. 

Children very often have chores to do before school, like fetching water, so are often up at 5.30 am.  Once they have finished their chores they may run to school, which starts at 7.30am.  rarely would the family have enough food to give them breakfast at home.  In school they are entitled to a meal at school twice a week (if the school can supply the meal).  In times of famine, they may return home to a very small, or no dinner at all.  Every second 3.6 children die in the world due to hunger and hunger kills more people every year than TB, Malaria and AIDS combined.  The event was a total success and the students raised more than £500.

Protégés of Peace Lawrenceville School

Protégés of Peace: The Northern Ireland Scholarship at the Lawrenceville School

Mr Allen congratulates Sophie, Year 14, who has been awarded one of two places on the prestigious Protégés of Peace Scholarship to America.

The Scholarship's mission is to enable two students from Northern Ireland to spend a year living and learning in the highly diverse and opportunity-rich environment of the Lawrenceville School, in Lawrenceville, New Jersey, USA.

Founded in 1999, the Scholarship has sent high-achievers who show great promise, leadership, and interest in study abroad, across to Lawrenceville where they have gained unique experiences living and learning amongst other young people from across the US and the world.

Previous Scholarship recipient Jack Taylor, class of 2015, looks back his time in Lawrenceville with ‘the fondest of memories’…no doubt Sophie will have the same positive experience!

On-Line Application Home to School Transport

Last year the Authority ran an extended pilot scheme for a number of schools which allowed parents to make applications for transport assistance on-line and receive an initial assessment indicating whether their child / children were eligible for transport assistance.
 
The purpose of this letter is to advise you that it is the Authority’s intention to extend this facility to include all Schools in the Education Authority, both Primary and Post Primary.
 
This means that all transport applications must be made on-line through the EA website
 
 
The on-line application service will be available from:
 
Primary School applications - 2nd May 2017
 
Post Primary School applications - 1st June 2017
 
Parents should be encouraged to apply before the 19th July 2017 as an offer of transport
 
assistance cannot be guaranteed for the 1st September 2017 if they make application after this date.

Foyle PE/Sports Kit

With Foyle College moving to a new single site it was decided to review the branding of the PE kit. When reviewing the kit there were two objectives

1.            A single identity for Foyle Sport.

2.            Ensuring the kit is affordable without affecting the quality.

From July the new Foyle PE/Sports Kit will be available to order through the school website.

More information will follow on pricing and how to order kit. You can keep up to date through the school website and the school social media pages.
