Congratulations to the U-17 girls soccer team who have qualified for the Ulster Final. The girls played Moville Community College on Monday the 11th January in the Ulster semi-final. It was a very tough game which ended level at normal time at 2-2. Vanessa Mc Hugh scored both goals for Deele College. The game went on to extra time and still the two teams were level.
While the staff and students of Deele College are looking forward to the Christmas holidays, one student in particular has good reason to look forward to the holiday season. Fifth year student, Jordan Boyce is gearing up for the world final of the BDO Youth Dart’s competition in the fabled Lakeside Arena in Surrey.
It is that time of year again. You and your family have the opportunity to fill a Christmas Shoe Box for a child in either Eastern Europe or Africa who will not get any other presents for Christmas.
It does take effort for us to fill the boxes but it is so worthwhile when you see their faces on the videos and hear back the happiness it gives them through their letters. The children do be delighted with the box and so do their parents, if they are with them.

Gemma Lynch, a 6th year student from Deele College in Raphoe has been awarded the JCI (Junior Chamber International) Donegal Most Outstanding Young Person for 2015 for volunteering leadership.
On Friday the 1st of May Mrs. Pearson and Mrs. Logue brought classes 1E and 2R to Belfast zoo as part of a CSPE project on Animal Rights.
They had a talk with the educational officer in the zoo who gave the students a chance to see a tarantula, snake and a giant snail up close. It was a most enjoyable and educational day out.
Well Done to students from Deele College and their teacher Ms. Annette Gildea who are among the top schools in Ireland in the competition.
