The Duke of Edinburgh Presentation Evening
On Thursday 28th March, at the Southport Theatre and Convention Centre, we had the pleasure of attending this event in what proved to be an outstanding advert for all that is best about Stanley High School.
Schools and Youth Organisations from across Sefton were in attendance, as was the Mayor of Sefton, the Lord Lieutenant of Merseyside and the High Sheriff of Merseyside who all spoke warmly about the success the students had demonstrated by attaining their various Awards.
Of all the participating centres, Stanley High had the most students achieve a Bronze Certificate, and the most students attend the event. They represented the school with great credit, smart appearance and excellent behaviour.
Well done to all the students who received Bronze or Silver badges that evening and well done, too, to Elena (Year 11) and Lizzie (Year 10) who acted as comperes throughout the evening. They spoke confidently and clearly as they read out the Award winners’ names and introduced the guest speakers, to an audience of around one thousand students and supporters.
May I also take this opportunity to praise the new Year 9 cohort who began their DofE on Wednesday, by taking part in a one day practice walk around Chipping. The students were very enthusiastic and well-behaved and this augurs well as we head towards their Expedition season after Easter. They even found the funny side of having to cross a field, minutes after the farmer had completed his muck – spreading!!
Southport College Discovery Day
Mrs Regan and Mrs Pactor took a number of Year 10 students to Southport College on Friday 29th March to attend a Discovery Day.
The students had the opportunity to take part in various workshops including Machining, Welding and Fabrication Overview, Introduction to Engineering Drawing, Model Building Masterclass, Construction Survey Tutorial and an Introduction to Computer Aided Design.
The students were a credit to the school. They really enjoyed the taster day and were told by one of the college tutors, “they were the most creative group they’d had that day.”
End of Term
I hope you have a relaxing spring break and please be reminded we will return on Tuesday 23rd April following the Easter weekend. Please ensure your child arrives on time for morning registration at 8.40am.
Mr N Moore
Year 11 Revision
Over the spring break, we will be holding a number of revision sessions, which your child will be aware of. Please encourage them to attend as many as they can, and if not to keep up their study during the two week break as it is important to keep continuity to ensure they keep on top of the work they need to do in preparation for their GCSE Examinations. Please follow the link below to view the timetable.
Should you have any questions as we move forward into the final half term before the exam season, please do not hesitate to contact the school via the enquiries email or the school office on 01704 228940. firstname.lastname@example.org
Year 8 merits
Year 8 have been collecting their merits in vast quantities and the majority of students now have their bronze badge for achieving 100 merits, and six students have received their silver badge for achieving 200 merits. Well done Year 8, Miss Kent is extremely proud.
UK Maths Challenge
In February, some of our Year 9 and 10 Maths students took part in the UK Mathematics Trust Intermediate Challenge. This is a national competition organised by the Trust in conjunction with Leeds University. We now have the results and we are pleased to announce that 15 of our students earned certificates.
Maths and English Fortnightly Challenge
Well done to Hollie from 7CS who won last week’s prize.
Please encourage your child to get involved and even have a go yourself! The link below shows the new challenge and the answers to all the previous challenges.
Mrs Ward’s creative work of the week goes to William in Year 10 for his painting ‘Eye’. The Atkinson Art Gallery in Southport has chosen William’s painting for an Art Exhibition.
The Gallery said that they had received a high number of entries from students across Sefton and William’s painting has been selected as a winner in the Student Art Competition for the Animal Section.
The judges were very impressed with the level of skill and creativity that William’s work showed. Well done William.
We have a target of 95% attendance and work hard every day to beat this. The whole school attendance for week ending 29th March 2019 was 95.3%.
Congratulations to 10EWA who achieved 99.6% attendance.
