The Class of 2020 hockey players said their farewells today during an outdoor presentation in Ebrington Square.
Ellie Goodman handed over the 1st XI hockey captaincy for 2020/2021 to Rachel, and we also welcomed our 1st XI vice-captain for 2020/2021, Meabh.
We also bid farewell to our fabulous senior goalkeepers, Alex Dougherty and Ebony Leckey, and presented Special Awards for 2019/2020 to Ellie Goodman, Ebony Leckey, Beth O'Neill and Katie Torrens.
After 7 years of hockey at Foyle College, we wish the girls well as they embark on the next chapter of their academic and sporting lives.
Thank you for your commitment to school hockey, ladies!

Happy World Book Day from Foyle College! This year, each Year 8 pupil created a character mask, depicting a fiction character on the mask side and a review of their chosen novel on the inside. A special well done to Darwyn, Jack and Jessica, whose masks were selected as winners!
It is safe to say our Year 12s loved ‘Blood Brothers’ at Millennium Forum Theatre & Conference Centre. Thank you to Mags from Education at the Forum for arranging an invaluable Q&A with the cast afterwards; Conaill Long and Nathan Fraser were fantastic interviewers! We have no doubt that the live production will have proved hugely beneficial to both our GCSE Drama and English Literature students.
We had a busy day in school today as we hosted the Western Health and Social Care Trust’s Allied Healthcare Careers Event. We welcomed pupils from schools across the North West to find out more about careers within the NHS. Our thanks to Anne Love, Volunteer Manager for the WHSCT, and all the health professionals who so willingly gave up their time to provide this amazing opportunity for our students.
