What a fantastic week we have had – the sun has shone on Werneth in so many ways.
Firstly, If you have time, it is well worth having a look at our time lapse video cameras on the website – you can see the progress of the new building speeded up and a live feed to see what work is being done right at this moment. The site in unrecognisable at this moment - this weather will certainly help the contractors to keep to their deadlines!
Our sporting events this week have certainly shone. In the Athletics league finals with Year 9 and 10 girls we saw a fantastic result as they reached the finals from the 11 schools who were competing. Year 10 finished 3rd overall with Year 9 in 5th place. A great effort from all who took part. Some of the shining stars were invited to a lunch with Miss Sloane today.
On Thursday Mr Bennett and Miss Smith took our Year 9 and Year 10 GCSE PE cohort to compete in the Aquinas College Cup in the sports of football, netball and basketball. They fought hard against 7 other Stockport schools and the hard work paid off as Werneth finished overall in 2nd place! A special mention must go to the boys’ football team who brought home the cup by winning their competition undefeated and the netball team who finished in 3rd place.
Next week sees the Sports’ Presentation Awards, rounders’ matches at Kingsway and the Year 8 rounders’ tournament. What a week that will be!
Our Year 11 Rewards’ Trip for Senior Students went to Alton Towers on Wednesday and had a great time – as you can see from their photo. It was a reward for all their wonderful service in supporting the school in their role as our Senior Students.
Yesterday was Induction day for Year 6s followed by Induction Evening. Our thanks go to the fantastic Year 9s who helped out during the day – they were kind, helpful and most supportive: the embodiment of true Werneth learners. There were many awards for Student of the Week that could be given out not only for Year 9 but also our Senior Students who were fabulous on the evening itself. Well done to all – you did Werneth proud!
Today 14 of our Year 10 students were off to Manchester Airport – we hope they had a great day and I am sure that more details and photos will be in order for my penultimate blog of the year. We also have the Duke of Edinburgh qualifying expedition this weekend. Over the two days the groups pass through Broadbottom, Tintwistle, Hadfield and the surrounding area. We wish them well.
Hope you have a lovely weekend – it promises to be a good one.
