May­oral Brief­ings with Cllr Neil Furey

Ormskirk Advertiser - - Student Life -

ON TUES­DAY, July 11 my wife and I at­tended a per­for­mance of Lit­tle Red Rid­ing Hood by Year 6 pupils at St Ed­munds School In Skelmers­dale.

The chil­dren and staff put on a won­der­ful panto and we had a very en­joy­able evening. Well done to all the chil­dren and staff.

On Wed­nes­day we at­tended an art ex­hi­bi­tion at New­burgh School.

Many hours of work had been put into dis­play­ing the chil­dren’s art­work and we were very im­pressed with the stan­dard of work and dif­fer­ent ideas.

I ap­plaud the school for such a great ex­hi­bi­tion.

Later in the evening we hosted a civic re­cep­tion at the coun­cil of­fices for Kelly Shirley School of Dance, Burscough.

This was to con­grat­u­late them for rep­re­sent­ing Team Eng­land and win­ning sev­eral fi­nals at the Dance World Cup in Ger­many.

We had a lovely time and it was great to meet the dancers and con­grat­u­late them on their fan­tas­tic achieve­ments.

On Mon­day, we went to Tar­leton Bowl­ing Club for a Gi­ant Story com­pe­ti­tion evening or­gan­ised by the Friends of Tar­leton Li­brary. Hun­dreds of sto­ries had been sub­mit­ted by lo­cal school­child­ren and it was great to present prizes and cer­tifi­cates to the win­ning chil­dren from each age group.

The stan­dard of writ­ing was very high and judges had a very dif­fi­cult job in pick­ing the win­ners.

Well done to all the chil­dren who took part and to the Friends of Tar­leton Li­brary for or­gan­is­ing a very pop­u­lar com­pe­ti­tion.

Fi­nally, we have reached the end of the school sum­mer term and fam­i­lies will be look­ing for­ward to a sum­mer break.

I hope the weather stays fine and you all have an en­joy­able sum­mer.
