We were delighted to hear some fantastic news which reached us this week and we would like to share it with you
On Wednesday 29th November, the Year 10 Maths Mentors and a group of Year 7 pupils gathered in the gym to prepare for the Maths Roadshow.
Form representatives from each year group proceeded to the Chapel, where the ceremony was to begin. A remembrance service should be very respectful, and the pupils at St Edmund Arrowsmith certainly recognised the solemnity of the occasion.
I was delighted to meet up on Wednesday with one of our former pupils, Ethan Havard, who was in Year 11 last year and who represented the school at rugby in all of the five years he was here.
On Thursday 16th November, me and four other Year 8 pupils were invited to the DW Stadium in Wigan, home of Wigan Athletic, to take part in the Wigan Athletic Enterprise Challenge 2017.
On Thursday 9th November, the annual St. Edmund Arrowsmith Certificate Presentation Evening took place, where the former Year 11 pupils gather together for the final time to receive their well-earned GCSE certificates.
Now that our final year is upon us, it is essential that we feel fully prepared and ready to approach our future in the outside world. With this in mind, over the last few months we have been writing our CVs and Personal Statements with the help and guidance of our teachers.
The Year 9 Spelling Bee opened with an inspiring speech from Mr Halliwell explaining how all the advances that have ever been made since time began have been developed into whatever they are today, because of good communication and that good spelling is necessary for any communication to be effective.
I felt honoured to have the opportunity to celebrate our first ever Mass during our new journey at St Edmund Arrowsmith in the form of the Y7 Welcome Mass which took place on Friday 29th September.
You may remember reading on the website about two very special awards which were given out at our end of year assembly in July.
It's that time of year again – September, when the leaves begin to change and young people return to school to face the start of the new academic year - for some of us, however, this return to St Edmund Arrowsmith will be our last.
The sun should have been shining brighter today in Ashton in Makerfield, as the class of 2017 arrived to collect their long-awaited GCSE results.
