The review of the week starts with a thank you from Miss N Smith to all of the 15 staff and 30 senior students who helped to create a spooky atmosphere in school last Friday night for our “Year 7 Scary Sleepover event”. 85 students from Years 7 and 8 participated in a range of learning experiences centred around a horror theme, with pride of place awarded to Mr Mujagic’s haunted asylum-themed experience room. The students really enjoyed the experience, and raised money for the Year 7 camp at the end of the school year as well.
On Saturday, Christmas spirit hit the local community! A number of year 7 & 8 students performed 2 festive dances as part of the 'Romiley Traders Market' Christmas light switch on. It was a great community event enjoyed by everyone. Although a little cold, the girls put on their tinsel, smiled all the way and did a fantastic job of entertaining the public. Well done to all involved and a huge thank you from Miss .Hibbert
Werneth went global last weekend with year 9s Shannon Quinn, who attended the cheerleading world championships in Berlin this weekend. More than 1300 young people represented over 20nations and Team UK were silver medallists, placing 2nd. So well done to Shannon for her amazing achievements. Werneth are really proud of you!
I met with 4 delighted Year 10 students on Friday, after they had been crowned “Stockport Young Apprentice Winners 2015”. They participated in the Stockport Young Apprentice Competition on Thursday at Stockport's Edgeley Park against 6 other Stockport secondary schools. Their task when there was to design a Christmas card that could be sent from The Apprenticeship Store to local residents and businesses. The card, as well as promoting the Apprenticeship Store, had to also meet one of the council’s objectives of being green. Our students produced a superb design what was not only handmade but also available as an E-Card - this we feel was the deal breaker! Students had to work out costings, selling price and profit margins. They worked brilliantly as a team coming up with a superb business plan and were quite rightly crowned 'Stockport Young Apprentice Winners 2015'.
I was very proud of our school hosting, for the seventh consecutive year, the Stockport Boccia tournament this Thursday, and I was delighted to present the medals and certificates at the end of the day. Some of the proceeds from the event went to the Heart Foundation, and some to the Muscular Dystrophy Foundation.
It’s been a busy sporting week! On Tuesday, 15 of our year 9 pupils visited the “Girls Active Day” at the Armitage Centre in Manchester. The girls took part in an alternative day of sport which included scootering, Zumba, tag rugby, ultimate frisbee and box fit. The girls’ effort and behaviour were outstanding and they are excited about starting a new sports club back in school for other year 9 pupils.
In netball matches against Kingsway, all teams from Year 7 to 10 won their matches, whilst 4 Year 11 girls represented Werneth in the GCSE badminton tournament on Wednesday. They performed admirably and thoroughly enjoyed the experience. Our girls football team were in action last week and finished 4th in the Stockport Schools tournament held at Woodley Sports. The girls finished the tournament playing great football and beat St James 2-0 in their final game to finish 4th.
60 year 7 boys were treated to a morning of touch rugby led by ex players and coaches from Sale Sharks this week. They learnt new skills and took part in a friendly tournament. They then went on a day to Sale Sharks Stadium where they were taught about the best way to manage budgets and develop their own financial awareness. The day was a great success and was enjoyed by both pupils and staff.
Finally, on Tuesday night the Year 11 Badminton team completed in the Stockport Schools Badminton Final against last year’s Greater Manchester Champions St James. All games were very close, and beat one of the St James teams 3-2 to reach the Greater Manchester Badminton Finals. As a result, we will be representing Stockport at the Greater Manchester Badminton Final in 2016 for the first time in Werneth School history. Congratulations to Christian Corlett, Charlie Ainsworth, Tom Burgoine, Nathan Cotterill and Jake Hammond.
It’s time for a restful weekend for everyone! Enjoy yours!
