New stu­dents on school trip

Macclesfield Express - - SCHOOLS NEWS -

THE next co­hort of stu­dents head­ing to high school in Septem­ber got to meet their peers and teach­ers be­fore en­ter­ing the class­room.

All Hal­lows Catholic Col­lege or­gan­ised for 140 stu­dents to join them on a three-day trip to Liver­pool Hope Univer­sity, where they were en­cour­aged to get to know their new class­mates and teach­ers.

The stu­dents par­tic­i­pated in a range of sports and team build­ing ac­tiv­i­ties, at­tended a lec­ture, a grad­u­a­tion wear­ing a cap and gown and at­tended morn­ing and evening prayers to learn about the holis­tic ap­proach to learn­ing pro­moted at All Hal­lows.

Miss El­liot, a year seven form tu­tor, said: “The stu­dents had a great time – from the very pop­u­lar cooked break­fasts to in­ter-form sports com­pe­ti­tions, the stu­dents didn’t stop smil­ing for three days.”

The trip also gave the stu­dents a chance to build a re­la­tion­ship with their Year Learn­ing Leader Mr Aspinall, who will be with them from years seven to 11. Mr Aspinall said: “I thor­oughly en­joyed meet­ing all of the stu­dents and I am pos­i­tive they will make a great start in Septem­ber. I am look­ing for­ward to go­ing through their jour­ney with them.”

Mr Aspinall said the stu­dents be­haved im­pec­ca­bly through­out the trip and lived up to the col­lege’s core val­ues at of re­spect, co-op­er­a­tion, hon­ourable pur­pose, com­pas­sion and stew­ard­ship.
