Women into STEM

There is a stereotypical perception that women lack interest in technology and maths. However, research contradicts these perceptions. At school, girls perform to the same level as boys when encouraged, provided with the right tools and given access to role models.

What young girls do struggle with is not knowing enough about STEM careers and the opportunities available within the fields. In an effort to address this issue, Limavady High School took the lead in organising a Roe Valley Learning Community Women into STEM event held on Tuesday, 27 January.

One hundred girls who are studying ICT or Science subjects in the Learning Community schools were able to learn about opportunities within a range of industries and career areas. Female representatives from Randox, Allstate, the Engineering Training Council for NI, CAFRE, QUB civil engineering department and University of Ulster STEM initiative outlined potential career pathways and recounted their own experiences in a pre-dominantly male environment. Questions and answer sessions enabled girls to explore issues which concerned them in more depth.

The very successful event has increased levels of knowledge and understanding of STEM based companies and has encouraged the girls to give serious consideration to undertaking a career in this field, helping to grow a dynamic, innovative economy in Northern Ireland.

Pupils join Elite Development Football Squad

Congratulations to two of our pupils who have been selected for a Northern Ireland underage development squad. Richard Purcell from Year 10 and Ian Maxwell from Year 11 will travel to Manchester on 22 and 23 January as part of the Elite Performance Development Squad. They will play matches against Manchester City and Everton.

Richard, who plays in the goalkeeper position, has attended Coleraine F.C. Academy for the past five years. His inspiration is the Manchester United goalie, David de Gea, so being chosen to play in the city is a dream come true. Ian, a centre-back, is a member of the Maiden City Soccer Academy and said he was extremely excited to take part in this amazing opportunity.

We wish both boys the best of luck with this and all of their future footballing endeavours.

Girls Rugby

Over the past few months the girls at LHS have been tackling a new sport. Glenda Mellon from Ulster Rugby and Mr Young have introduced the girls from Yr9-12 to rugby. They have been training after school and thoroughly enjoyed the experience. 

On Thursday 11th December they LHS Team played their first competitive fixture against LGS. The girls loved the contact element of the game and got stuck into the physical challenge. The tackles and running with the ball in hand from both teams was impressive and many of the tackles made would put some of the Ulster Rugby stars to shame.

After an early score by LGS our girls battled back fiercely with Leah Gilfillan and Killain Frew crossing the line to secure a victory by 2 tries to 1.
The Schools Cup awaits ………….
