9th November 2012

Congratulations go to Georgie Crowther, a Year 7 pupil at Bolton School Girls’ Division, who has made it through to the quarter final of the 2012 Junior MasterChef on CBBC. Georgie joined young chefs from across the country battling it out on national television to impress judges John Torode and Donal Skehan by cooking up delicious meals from scratch. Having won her heat, Georgie is now through to the quarter final, putting her in the top four young cooks in the country! The quarter final can be seen on Friday 9 November at 4.30pm on both CBBC and BBC1. We wish her the best of luck! And the Girls’ Division’s very own version of Masterchef continues, with this week seeing the contestants creating decorated cupcakes. The top eight cooks will go on to the next stage of the competition.
Bolton School is all set to host the national Community Partnerships School Conference this weekend. The event will be attended by delegates from independent schools from across the country and will celebrate partnerships between schools and the communities they serve. The keynote speech on Friday evening will be given by Paul Oginsky, Youth Policy Advisor to the Prime Minister. Delegates will visit Bolton Lads and Girls’ Club and there will also be a series of workshops.
Year 12 pupils Tejal Shanbhag and Jenny Heyes, were awarded prestigious Arkwright Engineering Scholarships at a ceremony hosted by the Institution of Engineering and Technology, Savoy Place, London. Tejal received her award from sponsor, Rolls Royce, and Jenny from her sponsor, Lloyd’s Register Educational Trust. Fellow year 12 pupil Lucy Croston also received an Arkwright Scholarship but will receive her award later as she was unable to attend the ceremony.
The Girls’ Division can report a number of sport successes - year 10 pupil Elise Middleton has been selected for the North West Girls’ Under 15 regional basketball team, while sisters Ellena and Georgina Owen have been selected for rival County Netball Squads in their age groups. Thanks to a magnificent season last year as a member of the England Hockey Squad, Year 13 pupil Hannah Pike has been re-selected for the England Under 18 Hockey Team, and year 12 pupil Emily Harper has been chosen as a member of the England Under 19 Lacrosse Squad, following a very intensive selection process.
