Wythenshawe Hospital would love to invite any of the AGGS pupils together with their families to come and join a group who sing carols on the wards on Christmas Eve in Wythenshawe Hospital. They have been very grateful for the support for them over the past few years. It is very much appreciated by patients, their families and the staff. Words and refreshments will be provided.
They meet at 6pm in the hospital chapel and will be finished by 8pm.Under 16s must be accompanied by an adult.
The Y7, Y8 and Y9 Christmas Enterprise markets were as successful and as busy as ever this year. We had a variety of creative stalls ranging from emoji fridge magnets, to doggy treats to homemade Christmas candles and gifts. Congratulations to all the girls who took part, you all worked very hard to produce some amazing, original and good quality products. The winners for the best presented stall, most innovative product and best customer service and an overall winning stall for displaying the most entrepreneurial skills will be announced after Christmas.
Wednesday 9th and Thursday 10th saw the year 8 & 9 drama pupils perform their Christmas production of Lewis Carroll’s weird and wonderful Alice in Wonderland. Forty five girls took part and were on the stage the whole time, as they took turns becoming the set (the Mad Hatter’s Tea Party table and the rabbit hole tunnel) and a variety of hilarious characters such as the caterpillar, Father William and the turtles. There were excellent performances from everyone but special mention must go to Alice (Sophia Thomson- her wonderful singing voice and so perfectly cast for this role) the mad bad Queen of Hearts (Mahjabin Mamun), the Mad Hatter and March Hare (Rosie Robinson and Freya Sharpe- what wonderful facial expressions!)
Many thanks to Mrs Corner and Miss Dodd for all their hard work in producing this lovely end of term performance-the girls’ enthusiasm, the bright costumes and wonderful direction coupled with an excellent ensemble cast, meant this was a real success. Many thanks also to Chris Capon for his technical help, Val Brennan, Catherine Marshall, Julia Mayall and all the other associate and teaching staff who have helped with organisation and costumes.
The Y7, 8 and 9 Christmas Enterprise markets have been bigger and better than ever before! The Hall was bustling with Christmas shoppers looking to buy a Christmas bargain. Crafts ranged from couture cupcakes to bath salts, Christmas trees made from newspaper, Emoji biscuits & cards, homemade fudge, candle holders and Father Christmas pompom keyrings.
The talent has been outstanding and we still have one more week to go.
A share of the money raised will go to supporting this Terms charity, Shelter Box.
