Notre Dame A Stonewall Champion 2017

With the promotion of anti-bullying week, a few weeks ago and with the Rainbow Laces campaign to make sport everyone's game. It is appropriate that Notre Dame highlights the fact that we have recently been awarded as a Stonewall School Champion for 2017. Stonewall is a lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender rights charity in the United Kingdom named after the Stonewall Inn of Stonewall riots fame in New York City's Greenwich Village. Notre Dame is proud to stand with Stonewall, with its fight to let all lesbian, gay, bi and trans people, here and abroad, know they're not alone. We promise to tackle any homophobic, biphobia or transgender-phobia bullying in our college. Like Stonewall, we bel

Sixth Form Cookery

For the last two weeks during PSHCE, year 12 have been taking part in a cookery workshop with Mrs Campion and Mrs Byrne. The whole purpose of the workshops was to give our sixth formers a taste of what life will be like when they go on to university or finally move out, and they have to look after themselves. Mrs Campion demonstrated how to cook a healthy and nutritious meal, on a budget. As well as, how to clean up after yourself and do the washing up! Which some students, surprisingly had never done before! Parents, with sons or daughters in year 12, will be delighted to hear that they are now fully equipped in cooking up a delicious Spaghetti Bolognese. They are also more than capable of

PSHCE - Citizenship British Values

During the beginning of the Autumn term all pupils completed a 'Citizenship Course'. This course covers mandatory topics for PSHCE, such as the importance of understanding and practising British Values. Our prime British values include: the importance of democracy; the rule of law; tolerance of different cultures and religions; mutual respect and individual liberty. These key attitudes and skills, having been reinforced in lessons, are vital in the fight against hate crime. Particularly, tolerance and mutual respect are the blockades to hate crime against some the minority groups in our society: the LGBT community, physical and mental disability groups, the gypsy and traveller community and

Over the past five weeks, year 11 have been taking part in some fantastic workshops with Knowsley Youth Mutual on alcohol awareness. This has been building up towards Alcohol Awareness Week (November 17th - 23rd) which highlights the dangers of alcohol use and misuse by underage youths. The workshops have focused on alcohol and the law, the consequences of use and misuse of alcohol, pressures and gateways to alcohol misuse and dangers of alcohol misuse. These workshops run by youth worker Charlotte Brookes and her team from KYM, have allowed our students to engage and confidently speak about problems associated with alcohol abuse. KYM offered information, advice and support to the difficult

Students played against teams from across the North West and there were some excellent performances from Pierre Santos and Immanuel Akanji.

Anti-Bullying Poster Competition

Notre Dame was proud to take part in National Anti-Bullying Week 13th-17th Nov 2017, with the theme being: 'All Different, All Equal'. Pupils took part in a number of different activities such as assemblies and discussions in form time. We also had promotion of help available in school and by different charitable organisations. In particular, a whole school anti-bullying poster competition took place with students from all years involved. Pupils designed posters that reflected this year’s theme of respect towards people from all backgrounds particularly highlighting the key point that we are ‘all equal’. The winner of the competition would receive a gift voucher, as well as a selection box,

Remembrance Day

On Monday 13th November, the whole college came together as a community to commemorate Remembrance Day. The service led by Mrs Peaker and Miss Cavanagh, featured prayers offered by our Head Girl and Deputy Head Girl, both of whom had represented Notre Dame during the service at St George's Hall, the previous day. Students, from all years, were selected to place crosses remembering the fallen. Whilst a minute's silence was observed, Mr Dixon played the Last Post. Student behaviour was outstanding throughout and it was a very poignant service to remember those killed in conflict.

CELLS Project

Notre Dame welcomed the Liverpool Community Interest group, CELLS Project into the college for almost a week, from Tuesday 7th November to Friday 10th November 2017. The community worked with years, 7, 9, 10 and 11, doing workshops throughout the day with one fundamental goal: to educate our students on the consequences of crime and providing them with an informed choice on where a life of crime can take their lives. The fantastic and informative workshops run by the Cells groups, engaged our students with their own personal experiences of anti-social behaviour and crime, and the consequences that followed for them and other around them. Our students enjoyed and learnt a lot from the interac
