4th May 2012

This week Bolton School hosted an evening of fashion and beauty in aid of Bolton Hospice. The evening offered a fashion show with clothes from Matalan and Vicky Martin, modelled by our very own sixth form pupils, and Beauty students from Bolton College provided manicures and massages for those attending the evening. Further funds were raised by the sixth formers holding raffles and setting up stalls selling pretty cupcakes and jewellery. Also The School’s musical talent was also on display with the Girls’ Division May Serenade, not to mention culinary expertise in the Year 9 girls’ Masterchef Semi Final!

A team of Year 7 boys entered the Bolton School's Gymnastics Competition for the first time and Sam Bowden came away with a silver medal! Sam, along with fellow pupils Cian McMahon, and Sammy Gatenby were the only boys in the competition and competed in the Advanced Category against around 55 girls. While Year 2 pupil Hollie Asquith has excelled at the British Roller Skating Championships in Peterborough. Hollie entered the British Tots Free Skating and finished an impressive 7th out of 19. She also competed in the British Tots Solo Dance and finished 10th out of 23.

The Boys' Division Catering team has raised £140 for Firwood House Care Home with an Easter raffle. Catering staff worked hard to sell tickets to boys and staff at the school, with Easter egg prizes on offer, which were donated by catering staff. Representatives from Firwood visited the school to be presented with the cheque, and the money raised will go to improving the sensory garden at the home.

And Sixth Form Girls had the opportunity of a lifetime when they visited the US and got to go inside the White House! The rare chance came about through an Old Girl who was the PA to a 91 year old attorney at the White House, and organised for the Year 12 History and Government and Politics students to gain access while on their trip to Washington. Meeting the president's dog was just one highlight as was leaving the building by the front door and waving to the tourists on the other side of the railings! The girls also visited the main sights of Washington and New York, and even stooped off at some Amish farms in Pennsylvania on the trip.
