Pupils show their class

Macclesfield Express - - HEART OF THE COMMUNITY - STU­ART GREER

STU­DENTS have been trav­el­ling far and wide rep­re­sent­ing their schools and the town in a va­ri­ety of pro­grammes and events.

Year 10 stu­dents from All Hal­lows Catholic Col­lege went to Adling­ton Manor care home to ex­pe­ri­ence what it is like to work in the kitchen with the chef. They en­joyed mak­ing the desserts for the home on Street Lane, Mac­cles­field.

King’s School sixth for­m­ers came out on top in the Cheshire and Manch­ester branch of the Ge­o­graph­i­cal As­so­ci­a­tion’s an­nual ge­og­ra­phy de­bate.

Sarah Laughton, 17, from Mac­cles­field, Oliver No­vak, 16, from Mac­cles­field, and Emma Jarvis, 16, from Rainow, fo­cused on the is­sues of fair agri­cul­tural trade, land grabs, food aid and GM food pro­duc­tion dur­ing the de­bates. The trio beat teams top schools from across the re­gion to take first prize in the com­pe­ti­tion.

Mean­while, teenagers from Mac­cles­field grad­u­ated from the Na­tional Cit­i­zen­ship Scheme (NCS) at a cer­e­mony at Ch­ester Cathe­dral.

The gov­ern­ment pro­gramme pro­vides op­por­tu­ni­ties for young peo­ple to de­velop new skills, meet new peo­ple and make a dif­fer­ence to their com­mu­nity.

The young­sters took part in the school with the Youth Fed­er­a­tion of Cheshire, whose chair­man is Jim Blis­sett.

A lit­tle closer to home, Mac­cles­field Col­lege’s Staff Well­ness Fair raised £368 for Breast Can­cer Aware­ness Cam­paign and East Cheshire Hospice.

Raf­fle prize win­ners on the day were Jill Perkins, Vic­to­ria Mor­ris and Tina Bar­ton.
