Pupils show their class
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.
