Joseph Delaney Visit Tuesday 30th April

Joseph Delaney Author of Spooks will be visiting Maghull High School just after Easter on Tuesday 30th April 2013 so anyone wanting signed Spook's Books, the paperback of Book 13 'Blood' is just out!!

Joseph Delaney is a retired English teacher living in Lancashire. He has three children and seven grandchildren and is a wonderful public speaker available for conference, library and bookshop events. His home is in the middle of Boggart territory and his village has a boggart called the Hall Knocker, which was laid to rest under the step of a house near the church.

Most of the places in the Spook's books are based on real places in Lancashire. And the inspiration behind the stories often comes from local ghost stories and legends.

The Spook's Apprentice, The Spook's Curse and The Spook's Secret have all been shortlisted for the Lancashire children's Book for the Year Award. The Spook's Apprentice is the winner of both the Sefton Book Award and the Hampshire Book Award.

North West Technology Tournament

Mr Abraham and Miss Nelson took two teams of year 7 girls and one team of year 10 boys to represent the Design and technology Department at the annual North West Technology Tournament held at North Liverpool Academy.

The teams were involved in solving a problem that required them to design and make a vehicle powered by a falling weight!

All teams worked well and produced some excellent designs and finished products.

Up against more experienced and older teams, all our teams, especially the year 7 teams, performed admirably but this time failed to win a trophy.

The teams were:

  • Paris Tansley
  • Sarah Maguire
  • Megan Neary
  • Beth Barlow
  • Megan Kinsella

  • Beth Frankland
  • Clare turner.

Easter Letter From Mr Anderson

On behalf of all the staff and Governors may I take this opportunity to thank you for your support this term and wish you and your family a restful Easter break. We return to school at normal time on Monday 15th April, when the days will be longer and hopefully the temperatures significantly warmer!

The Summer term is naturally hugely important for students in year 11 and Sixth Form, and it is essential that all pupils ensure that their behaviour is calm and respectful so that we can do all possible to support our older students in the run up to their examinations.

With this in mind we will be paying particular regard to the importance of basic matters such as movement around the school, punctuality to lessons, correct uniform and being equipped for learning. Should you wish to refer to the basic uniform requirements then they are listed on page 6 of the Student Planner. May I stress that school footwear must be entirely black and that, although we permit trainer style shoes, there must be no visible logos, stripes, white laces etc. The only jewellery permitted is a watch and no more than one pair of plain ear studs. Excessive make-up, including false nails and eyelashes, must not be worn.

We will continue to have senior staff monitoring uniform on arrival at school and would ask parents to check that their children remember to come to school with a bag containing the necessary equipment for learning (pens, pencils, planner, ruler, rubber). I have asked staff to check equipment in each lesson at the start of term.

I am sure that you will want to support my view that, in terms of uniform and equipment, what applies to one must apply to all, and therefore I give notice that we reserve the right to send home any student who is not properly dressed or equipped. I would also like to remind parents that the school has a uniform fund which will help any family which is unable to supply uniform due to acute financial circumstances. We want all of our students to aspire to achieve their best; being ready to learn and being properly dressed is one small but important way in which we achieve this goal.

Finally, may I remind you that urgent messages and “hot” news will be posted on the school website and tweeted at @headmaghull.

GCSE Electronics at Edge Hill University

This week year 10 Electronic Products class visited the DT Dept at EDGE HILL recently.

They took part in lessons that included using the latest CREO CAD, an industry standard CAD package and designed a small torch.

The torch was then made using a new technology called 3D printing.

The afternoon was then spent using surface mount technology to create the electronics to finish with a working key ring torch.

The excellence of the facilities at Edge Hill encouraged some to now consider entry to university as a career ambition.

The group were a credit to the school and participated fully in all activities.

A great educational day out!
