11 September 2015

Sunny skies greeted pupils this week as they returned for the start of a new school year this week!

Towards the end of last term, the Junior Boys held their annual Entrepreneur Week with the Year 6 boys competing to raise the most money for charity with stalls selling treats at lunchtime. The event also helps to introduce the children to valuable entrepreneurial skills. This year, the winning team with the most profit chose to donate all of the money raised to HExN's Nepal Earthquake Relief Fund.

Over the summer holidays, children at Kidzone - Bolton School's wraparound childcare - had lots of fun as part of the Holiday Club. The children played with the parachute and had fun on a bouncy castle.

Towards the end of August, Kidzone was visited by Chockle'Arty - specialists in chocolate workshops! The children were able to create their own customised Chocolate Pizza, using whatever sweet toppings they chose. The finished products both looked and tasted delicious.

One of the highlights of Kidzone's Summer Holiday Club was the trip to Knowsley Safari Park. The children loved seeing all of the exotic animals, were amazed by the tricks in the Sea Lion Show, and also enjoyed a fun-filled afternoon on the rides!

This week's addition to the Inspiring Minds roster looks back to the years 1917-1946 and reflects on the enormous contribution that Mrs Emma Saxelby made to the School. Both as a French teacher and eventually as the Head of Modern Languages in the Boys' Division, she is remembered for her passion for her subject and her personal interest in each individual who passed through her classroom or House. After her death in 1946, the memorial Saxelby Gate was erected in her honour. Mrs Sazelby's Inspiring Minds profile includes several moving tributes from those who knew her.
