We have had a great first week back after half-term and today we are proud to celebrate all that we have achieved this week.
Today we held a Remembrance Assembly ahead of Remembrance Sunday on November 8th. We were honoured to host members of the British Legion and the local youth cadets to tribute those who fought in world conflicts. Our school community showed our respect and gratitude to those personnel currently serving to protect our freedom by observing exceptional self-discipline and observing silence in today’s assembly. The assembly was a moving experience with our Head Boy & Deputy Headboy, Alex and Ross, leading the event with a moving speech on why we commemorate the day. A beautiful rendition of the Last Post and The Rouse was played by Emma Drew on her trombone. We closed out with a touching reading of Flanders Field from the Holly and Issy, our Headgirl and Deputy Headgirl. We hope the students go home with a continued appreciation of those who demonstrate sacrifice for us.
One of our students, Ollie Waring, has had great success in the National Cross Country Championships this week. Ollie competed with the Vale Royal Club and came in a fantastic second place; a huge congratulations to him.
This week we were very pleased to see our Emotionally Healthy Schools Initiative mentioned in the House of Commons by Member of Parliament Nicky Morgan. Mrs Morgan welcomed the initiative during the Education PQs and we are proud that Middlewich High School are the county’s lead on this project. Please see the news article coming soon.
Our Able and Talented Year 6 Aspire course continues on Wednesday evenings and it was busy in Product Design this week. Students working beyond age expectation join us each week and engage in higher learning experiences associated with secondary school. Well done to all who attend and I wish to extend my thanks to my teachers who offer their time to welcome students from our primary schools to work with us.
We have many more events coming up before Christmas so please continue to check our Facebook, Twitter and website for all the news from our school.
