I hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas break and I wish you all a very happy and prosperous 2016.  The first week of term was very busy, with lots of fantastic efforts being made by both staff and pupils. 

Miss Gallagher told me about the great work taking place in Year 7, with Jodie Latham 7L, Emily Chesworth 7S, Isabelle Asquith 7C, Tyler Jones 7H, Aoife McMahon 7H and Amelia Barrett 7W, all achieving the Bronze Library Award. Joshua McHenry 7B and Katie Murray 7O achieved the Silver Library Award and Leah Else and Kiera Ogden achieved special library awards for their attitude and splendid example to other pupils.   

Mary-Jane McLoughlin 7W, Morgan Mather 7W, Katie Davies 7M, Alison Travis 7M and Caitlin Morgan 7L, all achieved the Bronze Numeracy Award.  A special mention to Katie Murray who has been a real ‘Good Samaritan’ over the past four weeks, as she has waited at reception every day to help Fleur Sandbach, who is on crutches, around school.  Well done to all, keep up the good work!

Mrs Golba has been coaching the Year 8 netball team this year and told me how proud she was of their efforts; they are now undefeated for six games in a row, which is a massive improvement from start of the season! Brilliant, girls - keep up the effort.

Mrs Crompton informed me that her Year 10 class produced some fantastic electromagnetic spectrum presentations this week. The pupils were very confident during the delivery and showed excellent subject knowledge, even using past exam questions to check their peers’ understanding. Some had even produced a summary handout for pupils to keep and revise from.  Excellent work Year10!

I will be going to Widnes on Saturday to watch our Year 9 team take on St Peters in the North West RL final (K.O. 2.45pm). I wish them the very best of luck; I am very proud of their outstanding efforts.
