A fantastic Enrichment Day took place at school on Tuesday 4th November with a wide range of activities and experiences provided for the pupils outside their normal curriculum.
Year 7 worked in teams to create Healthy Eating menus in an Enterprise competition. Each Tutor group produced fantastic ideas which they presented to the rest of their class. The teachers had the difficult decision of picking the winning group from each Tutor group and those 7 winners then presented their ideas to the whole Year Group.
Year 8 had the chance to try Design and Technology tasks such as: making sock puppets, baking muffins, creating poppies for a Remembrance display and painting images to be hung in the hall which reflect aspects of the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child.
Year 9 received a visit from a theatre company, that allowed them to reflect on the power of drama and theatre in education. The pupils were treated to a performance from the company in the morning followed by developmental activities and the chance to create their own performances in the afternoon.
Year 10 were given the opportunity to see how Maths can be used in a practical career based way. Many industrialists visited school and delivered sessions for the pupils including local businesses and national organisations such as the RAF.
Year 11 were given a choice of a range of talks from prospective colleges and Further Education opportunities from across the North West. Sessions were delivered by: KGV, Formby High, Winstanley, Range High, Runshaw College, Southport College (including health cadets and apprenticeships), Christ the King, Myerscough College, Liverpool Media College, City of Liverpool College – fashion and LFC. They also had the chance to attend a mock interview preparation talk. Pupils were extremely enthusiastic in their chosen presentations asking lots of relevant questions and they finished the day feeling informed and energised about their future opportunities.
