Week Beginning: Monday 27th April 2015
Our amazing Hilbre community continues to work together to help and support students and staff most affected by the tragic loss of one of our students. We have been overwhelmed by messages of comfort and support, and by the contributions towards the funeral costs which continue to flood in.
Recently, Esther McVey, MP, and West Wirral political candidates Margaret Greenwood (Labour) and Peter Reisdorf (Liberal Democrats) enthusiastically engaged in a Hilbre 6th Form ‘Any Questions’ session.
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.
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. they 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
