Maths Competition 2014

Year 10  

maths comp 2014 2

  

On Wednesday 12th March 4 of our brightest Year 10 Mathematicians took part in the Regional heat of the UKMT Year 10 Maths Competition. Joseph Stack, Jonathan Wu, Ryan McCarthy and Dean Grierson were the four representing the school. The event was held at King David’s High School with 25 teams taking part. There were five rounds, one of which students had to study beforehand, all against the clock. The rounds tested problem solving skills and working effectively together in a team. Particularly difficult was the final relay round in which the teams only had 3 minutes to solve 4 questions if they wanted all the available points. It was great to see so many pupils enjoying a competitive afternoon or Maths.  

 

Whilst we did not finish in the top three schools, St Michaels came a very respectable 7 out of 25, which considering this was the first event of this type the boys had attended was a fantastic result. Well done!

fair trade  

 On Thursday 6th March we had the fantastic opportunity of welcoming Juliet Arku Mensah into school, who is a Fair-trade Banana producer from Ghana, she was able to deliver an hour long assembly to our year 7 & 8 students on Fair-trade and how important it is to the lives of many people around the world. She was also able to have a short chat with our year 8 “Make a difference” group who will become the steering group for Fair trade in our school. The hope is that we will be able to gain the three Fair-trade school awards over the coming year.

Sheep at St Michael's! School Farm launched

 

web sheep

  

We are delighted to announce the arrival of four little sheep in the grounds of school as the start of our new ‘School Farm’ initiative.

 

Their names are Nettle, Annabel, Dolly (the 'blonde') and Hope. Nettle is a Zwartable (slightly bigger with a white stripe on her nose), and the others are all North Ronaldsay sheep, all are rare breeds.

The sheep have come to stay with us a little earlier than planned! As they are no longer for breeding, they had been rehomed and put out to pasture. Last week their keeper rang me to say he could not keep them on his land and it was either back to me or a rather more unpleasant fate! As Mrs Moulton (Lead Practitioner for Science) has kept livestock before, we were able to get the necessary legal and official paperwork done last week and much to the delight of the pupils and staff were able to offer ‘the girls’ a safe home here!

As Lead Practitioner for the North West of England for the Rural Dimension (Environmental Science, Horticulture and Agriculture) Mrs Moulton was delighted to join the Senior Leadership Team at St Michaels as Lead Practitioner for Science in September and to help develop and deliver the Head teacher’s vision for fully using the grounds to create engaging and exciting learning for the young people in this school and others. In her previous school, she set up the first school farm in Merseyside a few years ago and have since helped many more schools in the region to introduce this amazing opportunity and resource.

We will be holding an information and Consultation Evening next term to discuss options and plans for a School Farm at St Michael’s and details of this will be shared with you in due course.

Exciting times at St Michael’s!

Lori won first place at the School Heat Stage, beating twenty-four pupils in her year group by cooking a hot main course meal of ‘Baked cod in a smoky cheese sauce with duchess potatoes’ for two people within a budget of £5.

 

At the Local Heat Final, which took place at West Cheshire College in Ellesmere Port, she widened her repertoire by cooking ‘Pan fried sea bass with spring onion mash and sauce vierge’ followed by ‘Lemon tart with raspberry coulis and Chantilly cream’ which won her first place.

 

The Year 10 pupil then went on to reach 3rd place in the Regional Final at Manchester College on 24th February competing against several schools within the North West. She has received continued support from her mentor chef, Adam Franklin from the Yacht Club Liverpool, who kindly prepared Lori for this stage of the competition.

 

The FutureChef competition is a four-staged nationwide culinary competition, which helps young people, aged 12 to 16, to learn to cook. It also provides a unique insight into the world of professional cooking by capturing imagination, recognising talent and providing a potential platform to launch a fabulous career.
