Design a Dessert Competition

Design a Dessert - 1st place

This week, Wednesday 8th February, was the opening night of “Fireworks” the new dessert restaurant in Altrincham, next to the cinema. As the three winners of the design a dessert competition that took place in school this term, Sophia, Jenny and Jemima were all invited to this launch event. Sophia, as the overall winner, was asked to cut the ribbon to open the restaurant officially. The three girls were accompanied by their parents and teachers. We had a lovely evening tasting all the delights of the new menu and the chefs created the desserts the girls had designed for them to try. Thank you to all those who entered. The level of effort that went in to all the designs was fantastic and the quality of the work outstanding..

Money Raised by the Charity Committee

Charity money

The students raised an amazing £3,400 for Manchester Christie Hospital Charity, When you wish upon a Star and Dementia UK on the last day of term. We also sponsor an orphan in Pakistan, our donation of £300 contributes towards food, water, health, education, school supplies and other general necessities which we may take for granted.

This term we are fundraising for The British Heart Foundation. Our first fundraising event is The Valentine cake sale on Wednesday 8th February. All cake donations will be gratefully received, particularly if they’re pink! Pink sweets will also be on sale.

The British Heart Foundation –British Heart Foundation

The British Heart Foundation is a charity organisation in the United Kingdom. It is the single biggest funder of cardiovascular research in the UK. The British Heart Foundation was founded in 1961 by a group of medical professionals, who were concerned about the increasing death rate from cardiovascular disease. They wanted to fund extra research into the causes, diagnosis, treatment and prevention of heart and circulatory disease.

School Council Training

On Friday 21st October the newly elected school council reps had their training session.

After Wednesday’s election this was the first time that students from each year group were able to get together and build their team working skills and explore some of the issues that school council will be focusing on this academic year.

Year groups began with the spaghetti tower challenge to help consider the different skills they may need as school council reps and to get to know one another better.

Following this challenge each year group worked on their focus. This is a task to get the school council reps started and to allow them time to gather other ideas from their own forms.
