7th December 2012

The Year 9 Masterchef has been crowned, and the winner is Melissa Cordingley who won the judges over with her banana and walnut cake with toffee sauce. The final cook off between finalists Melissa, and fellow pupil Charlotte Winrow was a close fought battle with amazing food being produced by both girls, as each one cooked her 'signature dish'. Charlotte made a portobello mushroom and black pudding stack with cabbage and bacon, while Melissa opted for the banana and walnut cake. Down to just two girls the pressure was on as the girls had to cook their dishes in front of a live audience of pupils and staff.
Well done to several of our sixth form girls and staff who completed a ‘Santa Dash’ 5km run dressed as Santa in order to raise sponsorship money for a variety of charities. Eight and a half thousand people gathered from all over the UK to participate as Liverpool took on Las Vegas once again, for the ‘Largest Santa Gathering’ in a bid to win the World Santa Dash Challenge.
There were more Christmas festivities over at Hesketh House with their Christmas Concert this week. Dressed in winter woollies, the girls performed a number of readings, poems and musical items all about Christmas, in front of an audience of their family and friends.
Year 8 girls took part in a Crime Squad course this week as part of their enrichment at school. Girls worked in teams on a variety of activities, including decoding and defusing an explosive device, investigating a crime scene and examining forensic evidence, and solving a murder mystery using powers of deduction. The Crime Squad course was run by the company ‘Wiser Words’, who specialise in master classes and enrichment days for students.
And in sport, the Under 13 water polo team celebrated winning the prestigious 'President Trophy' tournament, triumphing over three other top class teams from all over the country - King Edward School, Birmingham, Kings School, Grantham, and Warwick School.
