Head's Blog 16th March 2018
It has been an exciting couple of weeks for us here, with our television debut last Sunday! We were visited by the BBC on Wednesday the 7th March, to report on our work as the lead school on the Emotionally Healthy Schools Project. The report was shown on The Politics Show; it was fantastic to see our hard work being recognised and we are very proud of the students and staff who took part in the filming.
Another group of students were involved in reporting this week, as they participated in the BBC School News Report. They wrote articles on everything from current affairs, to events around school and their own lives. You can check out their contributions here: http://www.mhs-bbc.uk/
I want to congratulate students who took part in the United Kingdom Mathematics Trust Intermediate Mathematical Challenge. 40 pupils from years 9, 10 and 11 took part with 17 pupils being awarded certificates, putting them in the top 40% nationally. Well done to Noah Curran, Matthew Naylor, Euan Dalziel, David Harrop and Rowan Westmacott on achieving a result which qualifies them to compete on an international level in the European Kangaroo Competition.
Yesterday, saw our first “On your Marks, Get Set, Cook!” competition, run by our catering company, Chartwells. Our site staff Mr Pass and Mr Brough, along with a team of students, pitted their cooking skills against each other. Mr Pass cooked a Stir Fry and Mr Pass made a curry, but after a close battle it was Mr Brough’s team who emerged victorious!
Our Year 11 students are heading to Menai today, for a weekend of revision before their exams. Hopefully they will manage to have some fun too.
Have a great weekend!
