Bolton School Blog: 3/5 - 7/5/2010

The country may be holding its breath for the results of the General Election but Bolton School have announced their winning party is the Green Party! Over 700 boys and staff voted in the Boys' Division election on 6 May to mirror the General Election, and Green Party candidate Year 11 pupil Nicholas Fairclough was a clear winner with 221 votes - coinciding with the success of the Green Party nationally as they secured their first ever seat. Nicholas' nearest rival was Conservative candidate Matthew Trevalyan from Year 13 with 152 votes, followed by Labour's Joel Harrison-Hirst also from Year 13 with 144 votes. Liberal Democrat's Cameron Lee from Year 8 received 113 votes and UKIP, represented by Richard Hamer from Year 11 got 71 votes.

Politics aside, the Chamber Choir have been busy again this week, this time performing a free lunchtime concert at Bolton Parish Church to an appreciative audience of members of the public making the most of their lunch breaks! The performance was part of a series of concerts being held every Tuesday at the church and Bolton School return next week as the Senior and Advanced Guitar Groups get their chance to perform.

Senior Boys have been walking their way to better health and winning prizes and raising money to boot! Year 8 boys were given pedometers as part of the promotion of healthy living in PSHE lessons, and competed against each other to see who could manage the most. To get them motivated and moving some boys combined the three day pedometer competition with charitable campaigns, raising money for Cancer Research and endangered pandas.

Footage of last week’s Battle of the Bands is now up on YouTube to view, and you can find out what the Old Boys’ Association has been up to by viewing the latest instalment of President Charles Winder’s blog.
