World Down Syndrome Day

World Down Syndrome Day is an opportunity to challenge our society's misconceptions about Down's Syndrome. In order to help raise awareness, our school community joined in with people all over the globe in wearing colourful and odd socks. As always, our school community gave generously, and in total we were able to raise £184.53. This money will now be donated to the British Down Syndrome Society.

EnvironLent Wildlife Houses

As part of Environlent, year 10 Product Design students have been working in teams to produce 3 bird nest boxes for use in the school grounds. We also hope to make a hedgehog home to support hedgehogs which are known to live around the school. Last year a distressed hedgehog was found in the staff car park. Miss Collings took him to The Hoggery, a hedgehog centre ran by Pawprints wildlife sanctuary. He was named Homer, as he was found on Great Homer street. As a result of his injuries he had an eye removed and recieved various other treatments. He then needed an enclosed garden to live out his days as he could not hunt the bugs and slugs as effectively with only one eye! He now lives in Mis

World Book Day

To celebrate ‘World Book Day’ on 7th March 2019, students participated in a variety of fun activities including quizzes and a story writing competition, the winner of which will be announced by Mrs Harrison and Mr Jones later this week. As well as this, students were encouraged to find extracts and quotations dotted around the college, which had been chosen by staff from their own favourite pieces of literature. In the week leading up to ‘World Book Day’, students had the opportunity to submit the titles of their all-time favourite texts, with the new ‘Notre Dame Top Ten’ revealed in all its glory on ‘World Book Day’ morning. ‘Notre Dame Top Ten’ 2019: 1) ‘Harry Potter’ series by J.K. Rowlin

Sri Lankan Visitors

This week we were delighted to welcome a delegation from the Sri Lankan Government into school. The visitors were on Merseyside as invited guests of Career Connect and were spending their time in the region looking at different secondary school careers education and guidance programmes; with a view to implementing some examples of good practice back in Sri Lanka. After a tour of the school the delegation met with key staff to find out about how we plan and deliver our CEIAG programmes. They also spent some time asking a group of students from Years 9-13 about the different careers activities they had been involved in and how they feel they have benefitted from those activities.

The Duke of York Inspiring Digital Enterprise Awards

Miss O’Kane and the computing department have been running ‘The Duke of York Inspiring Digital Enterprise Award’ club, which enables students to engage in online activities which cover various topics from the computing curriculum. When students complete tasks they are awarded points that count towards bronze, silver and gold certificates. This has been a well-attended club with 17 Year 7 students participating regularly since October. We want to congratulate in particular two students who have achieved their first award. The bronze award, signed by the Duke of York, was presented to these two students for the completion of 26 topics such as Game Design, Image Editing, Coding, E-Safety etc.
