HEADTEACHER'S BLOG...

Posted on Friday 22nd January 2016

Our Computing Department invited 10 girls from years 7-10 to attend the GiSTEM (Girls in Science Technology Engineering Maths) Event 2016 at MMU this week.   The purpose of the day was to inspire girls to pursue a future in STEM industries. STEM industries are actively seeking females to enter these careers to gender balance the workforce and bring a fresh perspective to the industry.  The girls received talks from successful business women from Virgin Media, Accenture and STEM who are working with schools, colleges and universities in attracting girls to their link businesses.  The students then attended a number of workshops where they experienced the art of programming, computing and 3D printing.  Other events included playing a new code training game called Hakitzu, which allowed the students to develop their problem solving and coding skills, Computer Aided Design creating 3D models through the Universities Digital Printing department and programming interactive games on Raspberry Pi computers.

Lauren Green and Kayleigh Gleave each won iPods for finishing the Raspberry Pi task first and received high praise for their problem solving and programming skills from the STEM representatives.  Every girl attending made our school proud, demonstrating fantastic problem solving skills and excellent programming potential. Mr Dorman was really proud of the effort and contribution of every student on this trip. It was a great success.

Our “Aspiring to be a Champion” event was highly successful on Thursday as well.  Thanks to the PE department for their work with our Year 7 and 8 talented PE students, along with students from our feeder primary schools.  We were really pleased to receive a letter of thanks from Arden Primary School “We are writing to you to thank you for organising such a great morning at Werneth. When we got back to Arden we felt inspired by your stories. We also had great fun taking part in all the awesome activities in the sports hall.”

On 22nd January, six Werneth students travelled to Bramhall High to take place in a drama workshop with 4 other Stockport secondary schools.  The schools were split into two groups to participate in two sessions.  One session involved puppeteering, physical theatre and wall work. The other session involved chair duets and two-touch theatre.
The groups then came together for an afternoon performance to which some parents had been invited. The students did Werneth proud, throwing themselves into the activities with gusto!
"We had a wonderful day, and the sessions were really fun. We made some new friends and learned some new drama techniques".

On Thursday evening, I attended the Year 8 production of Aladdin in the Image Theatre.  As usual, the acting, singing and dancing was great fun and a lot of work was evident from all of our students.  Headed by Rose Warburton as Aladdin, and Will Seager as Widow Twankey, all of the 25 students should be really proud of themselves.

Attached is a photo of our entry into this year’s Stockport Battle Of The Bands competition  (Jackson Taylor, Ed Farrow, Beth Calton, Jake Dillon & Sam Brierley).  This was their first experience of playing for a large audience and they did a great job, more than holding their own against six other more experienced bands.  Thanks to our trainee teacher Adam Guggiari for his work preparing the group.  

 

Mr Barnett also would like to remind parents that the Senior Band and singing groups are now preparing for our annual Cabaret which will be held on Friday March 18th in our Image Theatre.  Tickets will be available soon.  

Finally, a reminder that next Thursday is Year 10 Parents’ evening, from 4pm until 7pm.
Have a great weekend!
