Welcome back! We’ve only been back one week after the Easter holidays and already there is so much positive news to share.
Some of our staff had the pleasure of watching several of our ex-students performing in productions of South Cheshire College’s Oliver and Vale Royal Juniors’ Les Miserables and it is great to hear of their success. As Mrs Grierson said, we “wouldn’t be surprised to see their names in lights in the future.”
Our Easter School was a big success and enabled us to help students with extra revision and studying in preparation for their summer exams. Thank you to all of the staff who offered their time to come in over the holidays to help.
We had a very successful careers day on Wednesday, with our smartly dressed year 10 students having the valuable opportunity to have a mock interview in preparation for the real-life interviews they’ll have when applying for jobs and further education. We had representatives from twenty-four businesses, including Bentley Motors, South Cheshire College and Chester University here on the day and they were very impressed with our students’ positive attitude and maturity. Thank you to all.
On Wednesday evening, our GCSE Music students put on a number of performances as parents and visitors from the community came to watch and celebrate their musical talents. We had a fantastic turnout and the response has been wonderful, thank you to all who came.
We had a constructive PTFA meeting on Tuesday during which we welcomed parents’ and staff ideas for how we can improve Middlewich High School and raise money for equipment and extra-curricular enrichment for our students. There will be many more meetings to come in the near future, the details of which will be posted on our Facebook, Twitter and the website. We hope to see many of you there.
Mr Brough has taken up the challenge of running in the London Marathon this weekend! Staff have been sponsoring his run in order to raise money to dig a bore hole in Kilimo, Kenya. We will be sure to look out for him on the television on Sunday as he tries to beat his personal best and achieve 3 hours 5 minutes! Thank you to everyone who has sponsored him and we wish him the best of luck!
