Gold DofE Departs!

Each year at St.Chad's we aim to improve or develop all aspects of the school. I am delighted therefore that in our Duke of Edinburgh provision that this year sees us offering the Gold Award for the first time. 'Hot off the press' pictured you can see the nine students who as we speak are on the practice expedition in the Lake District! The sun is shining and I am sure they will have a great time as well as developing all the skills the Duke of Edinburgh scheme encourages in our students.


Congratulations Beth!

bethwoodsCongratulations to Beth Woods, who over the summer holidays collected her mountain bike prize, for winning the Fire Service Poster Competition. The poster was required to warn children to respect the countryside and wildlife about the devastating effects of fire setting. The poster was also used throughout Halton, as part of the Fire Service’s campaign against the problem.

Over 200 entries were submitted and Beth received high praise from the judges. Mark Sopp Watch Manager at the Runcorn Fire Station, said, “Beth’s design will be used throughout Halton and possibly Cheshire”. Beth was extremely kind by giving the prize to her younger brother who gleefully rode the bike home!

The runners up were also from St Chad’s, Jack Richardson (2nd) and Emma Russell (3rd) who received a framed copy of their entry.

In the swim!

KathrynSchofieldWe have reported a number of academic successes in the last few weeks because it is the results season but we also always celebrate equally the wider achievements of St.Chad's students. Therefore I am delighted to report again on the continued remarkable achievements of Kathryn Schofield in Year 9. Kathryn took part in Crosby Lakeside Open Water swim on Sunday 31 Aug 2014 where she entered the 400 metre event,  swam really well and was the first female to finish in a time of 7.18 - setting a new record for the Ladies' 400 m at Crosby. Kathryn also received her medal and a voucher of £30.00 for her first place finish. Kathryn is a member of Warrington Triathlon Club and Prescot Swimming Club which involves training 8 hours a week swimming,  one and half hours running and one and half hours cycling. She frequently competes against and beats athletes who are much older than Kathryn.

Well done, Kathryn we are all very proud of you!
