Year 9 EnvironLent

This half term year 9 have been raising money and awareness for Mind mental health charity. We have been collecting old books, DVDs, CDs and video games to raise money and also to help reuse and reduce waste to help save the environment. Some of the students have played a particularly active role by encouraging other students to bring in their unwanted items and to raise money, through presentations in various assemblies. We are very proud of all the students involved and we hope to raise a substantial amount whilst doing our bit for the environment.

Year 10 EnvironLent

As part of EnvironLent, Year 10 students chose to support the Whitechapel Centre, here in Liverpool. This centre supports families in times of need as well as the homeless. Year 10 have been collecting clothes and toiletries as well as toys, books and coloured pens and pencils. These items have been given to the Whitechapel Centre so that they can be distributed to those that need these items.

Holocaust survivor Uri Winterstein visits Notre Dame

On Friday we were delighted to welcome Uri Winterstein, our holocaust survivor, to Notre Dame College. His story of growing up in Slovakia during World War II and the loss of large numbers of family members, during this time, was both moving and sad. Despite this, Uri’s spirit and enthusiasm for life was infectious. The most memorable part of Uri’s testimony, for many of our students, was the moment that he decided that he should share his life experiences with others. As he sat in his local synagogue in London, his rabbi reminded the Jewish congregation that the story of surviving the holocaust really had to be shared with young people; it mustn’t be kept within. As a result Uri began t

Attendance Challenge Winners

Over this last term we ran an attendance challenge for all students. Every student who had 100% attendance for a week was entered into a prize draw and winners were selected at random on the last day of term. The winners won: a signed LFC shirt, a chocolate hamper and a LFC stadium tour voucher and a gift voucher and a LFC stadium tour voucher. Well done to the winners and all those who had 100% attendance weeks this term!

6th Form EnvironLent

The 6th form contribution to EnvironLENT has been to raise money for ethical lending projects in the developing world. Ethical lending projects are small business enterprises that need a helping hand to get off the ground, for example, people ask for help towards buying land to grow rice or to buy piglets for a farming project. Various groups of people donate an amount to help an individual enterprise (or more than one); the website lendwithcare.org gives more information. Our students have been raising money through raffling Easter eggs and a 'guess the number of eggs in the basket' fundraiser, as well as collecting small change every day. When we count up our combined total, we will decide

Year 8 EnvironLent

During Environlent, Year 8 have raised money for Oxfam. As a Year group, we have raised money through collections and raffles. In addition to this a Dodgeball competition will be held to raise additional funds for Oxfam. So far we have raised more than £100. The money will be used to support a variety Oxfam causes.

Year 11 EnvironLent

As part of the school’s ‘EnvironLent’ project, Year 11 students took part in the 'raid the money jar' challenge. Students were encouraged to donate spare change to their form ‘money jar’ collection. All money raised went towards world CAFOD gifts. In addition, and part of the Mother’s Day celebrations, Year 11 helped support the healthy mother and baby campaign. This support, we hope, will continue to ensure access to medical treatment for pregnant mothers and new born babies whilst also providing extra food for children who are at risk of becoming malnourished. Finally, Year 11 students sponsored a mother and baby; Delinah and her baby Muzina, from Zimbabwe. The resulting gift will help pro

Year 7 EnvironLent

Year 7 have been raising environmental awareness during lent. They have been collecting plastic bottles with the goal of drawing attention to the damage plastic is having on our environment and in particular to our oceans. Representatives from each form came together to create a piece of art, using the bottles, to again raise awareness of the problem plastic causes in our environment. Year 7 have also raised £100 pounds ,through various fund raising activities, to buy trees to plant in the school grounds to enhance the school environment. Each tree will have a plaque made, using up-cycled pieces of wood, displaying the EnvironLent logo, the name of the form group that planted the tree and
