Sefton Bullying Conference

On Wednesday, 21st November, we went to Bootle Town Hall for the annual anti-bullying conference. Kayte Walsh from Bullybusters was there and spoke to us about the different forms of bullying. In groups with students from other schools, we had to decide on a definition of bullying and we watched a powerful film called ‘Denial’, which we then discussed. The Anthony Walker Foundation came to tell us the story of Anthony and we watched a video about hate crime. As well as this, we had a talk about hate crime from a police officer from SIGMA, who gave us a helpline number for victims of this.

The day was fun and educational and the other students were really friendly. The lunch was good too! Now we have to prepare a presentation to deliver to the Peer Mentor Student Council group to pass on what we learned, making sure that other students in our school can benefit from the information we brought back from the day.

Writing competition

Emma is a winner in Sefton writing competition

Year 10 pupil, Emma Brown, entered her poem “The Drawer”, in the competition ‘Sefton Celebrates Writing.’ A few weeks ago she received an e-mail inviting her and her English Teacher, Mrs Tramantano, to the awards evening. They suspected at that point that she might have received an award, but couldn’t be sure. The event was held at the Clifton Hotel in Southport – the room was full and the presenter was David Lonsdale of ‘Heartbeat.’ Firstly the runners-up were announced – and Emma’s name was called out!

Emma received a cheque, a certificate and was invited to read her poem which she did, wonderfully – though Mrs Tramantano did notice her hands were slightly shaking! Whose wouldn’t in front of all those people?

During the evening, all the winners read out their work and were entertained by a professional rasta Liverpudlian rap poet too!

Hopefully, more pupils will enter the competition next year – but in the meantime – WELL DONE EMMA! WE’RE PROUD OF YOU!
