Santa Dash

The year 7s and year 8s all donned their Santa Claus outfits, Christmas jumpers and hats to complete a charity Santa dash on the 15th December.  Every girl in Year 7 and 8 completed the run in high spirits; singing Christmas songs along the way.  The year 7s were running for Claire House and the year 8s for Just Care and the Eastham day centre.  Mrs Joplin and Mrs Rigby are extremely proud of everyone who took part and would like to thank you for all your efforts this year and may the charity work still continue at the same pace in 2016.  Merry Christmas everyone

Geography Year 8 Blue Peter Appeal

The Geography Department held its annual Blue Peter Appeal competition this week and the winners were the team from 8JB – Chloe Horton, Leah Heartin, Gabrielle Parkinson, Chantelle Holsgrove and Erin Tasker – who gave an excellent presentation in support of WaterAid.

The judges were really impressed by the high standard of all the presentations, which were all imaginative, well planned and confidently delivered; the videos and other visual aids the girls had created were particularly engaging.

The Geography Department would like to say thank you to our 3 judges – Mrs. Mahony, Ms Rodgers and Mr. Loveland – and a big WELL DONE to every girl in year 8; the entire year group took part presentations, with each form voting for a winner to represent them in the competition. Special congratulations to our winners!
