Year 11 GCSE Drama pupils enjoyed a visit to The Everyman Theatre on Thursday afternoon to watch a performance of ‘The Lovely Bones’ based upon the novel by Alice Sebold. This captivating and traumatic story received a passionate response from Year 11 who were pleased to leave the theatre clutching a set of theatre evaluation notes. A reflection on live theatre performance will certainly prepare for them for the written examination in May and no doubt will leave a longer lasting impression on them.
Mrs Hall and Mrs Hayes were delighted to accompany the pupils who all demonstrated the Lerpoolian Standard with their immaculate uniform, conduct and attitude.
The MV Hall was packed for the Careers Masterclass by Medical Mavericks during today’s NSI period. Medical Mavericks are described as one of the UK’s No 1 providers of Careers, STEM and Sports Science enrichment experience for schools.
This latest masterclass in our Careers and STEM programme was specifically designed for pupils considering a career in medicine, biomedical science, healthcare science, medical engineering, medical physics, physiology, dentistry or sports science.
Over 160 pupils from Year 7, 9-13 had requested to attend the talk and were completely engrossed during the session. Short video clips of various physiological tests that the consultant presenter had recorded, caused quite a stir as the pupils watched a camera being inserted into his lung and a sample of lung tissues taken. The interactive nature of the presentation resulted in two of our pupils being tested for growth; they were very pleased to be told they would in fact grow taller, even though one pupil only had another year of growth left! At the end of the talk one Sixth Former commented that he thought the talk was ‘brilliant’.
At the same time, our Year 8 pupils were taking part in an E-Safety talk with Megan Brickland, Digital Community Support Officer from Merseyside Police.
