I would like to invite ourstudents to take part in a survey by GCSEPod, which is designed to take a snap shot of mobile technology used by 14-16 year olds in Northern Ireland.
The intention is simple: to explore what access to technology students studying for their GCSEs currently have, and how they perceive how it might help their studies now and in the future.

Pupils and staff at Foyle College celebrated European Day of Languages in style this year. Their action-packed programme included a Year 8 competition, which addressed the question Why learn a language?; a lunch-time French cookery class; and presentations given by native speakers on France and Spain. The highlight of the day was an extended assembly, during which all the items – speeches, psalms and prayers were conducted in the school’s principal languages - French, Spanish and English. Un grand succès!
