Congratulations to Mr Gregg and his excellent team of engineers who competed in the Greenpower Electric Vehicle Challenge on Thursday.
Last week, one of our Year 7 students had a very lucky escape when he was hit by a slow moving car in West Kirby as he was making his way home. We were all very, very relieved to hear that his resulting injuries were bruising and some residual shock but nothing worse, thank goodness. As a response to this incident we are arranging for external speakers to come in to school to talk about road safety with our new Year 7 students; in the meantime, we would encourage parents to take this opportunity to review the ‘Green Cross Code’ with your children and reinforce the importance of crossing roads in a safe place.
Duke of Edinburgh Bronze on Practice Trip
Congratulations to the Bronze Group ‘A’ who walked around Cheshire for their practice expedition. Although most groups got lost at some point, and many had tired legs or blisters, the expedition was a great success and has prepared them for their final assessment on 27th June.
Sixth Form Girls Supporting Sophie's Choice Campaign
Following the tragic death of Wirral teenager Sophie Jones and the make-up free 'selfies' that thousands have taken part in via social networking sites, the Sixth Form girls were inspired to come into school without an ounce of make up on. As they are naturally beautiful, they then managed to raise an amazing £150 in the first hour.
Our Literary Festival concluded with an award presentation. Alan Gibbons presented prizes to Mike Whiting, 6B our very first Hilbre Laureate and Amy Kelly, 10PI, Young Writer's Award. Congratulations to them both
