Y9 and 11 Drama students watched a theatre in education performance by LIPA's Community Drama department this week.
The aim of the performance was to inform teenagers about the broad spectrum of disabilities, and emphasise the impact that a disabled relative can have on a young person’s life. Students were encouraged to participate in a discussion about disabilities within teenagers and the performance aimed to remove the stigma by normalising disability in general conversation, meaning that siblings of disabled children will be more likely to seek support from their peers and teachers. This was a great learning curve for our students!
Some of our students recently representing Everton in the Community.
Claudia, Caitlin, Charlotte, Erin, Leah, Chloe S & Chloe G were an absolute credit to the school as they were involved in a fixture against West Brom at Everton Free School. The fixture (which involved premier league productions filming and coverage for international Women's day) was a tough contest but girls played extremely well despite losing 12-5. Both Chloe G & Leah produced some excellent saves despite the result, with both Chloe's and Claudia getting on the score sheet. Charlotte has to have a special mention for most improved with some vital tackles and Caitlin who played whilst only just recovering from a broken arm. The scoreline doesn't reflect our dominance as the West Brom keeper made some outstanding saves, Erin hit the post at least 3 times as well as Claudia not forgetting the one on one opportunities!
Two Gateacre School students were invited to Dubai recently with the Liverpool Schools Football Association to play against teams from all around the world. The boys involved are the most talented footballers in the city.
Norman Pannell primary school took part in a whole week of exciting science at our school last week (27th Feb to 3rd March). Children from year 1 all the way up to year 6 carried out activities from looking at how light behaves, to seeing how much energy there is in various foods to making Poo! Some made electromagnets, others made acidity indicators from everyday foods and others tested explosive gases. Year 5 even managed to test the flammability of Mr Roberts, our head teacher!
