Congratulations to Duke of Edinburgh Recipients!
Oct 7, 2018

Congratulations to Tyler, Lois and Elyse who succesfully completed their Duke of Edinburgh award after a two day 25km hike!

The candidates went to Tarporley in Cheshire and hiked around the Beeston area.  The girls completed 25km over the 2 days, planning their own routes and being completely self-sufficient throughout. 

During the assessment they cooked their own meals and camped out for the night. 

The candidates were delighted when they were awarded their pass by Mr Neil Bothwell, Duke of Edinburgh Assessor.  New skills, resilience and team working were learned by the girls over the weekend and they have even tempered their fear of cows to get these wonderful pictures!  

Year 9 take TIME on Road Safety
Oct 4, 2018

We welcomed Ginificent Productions into school today to perform their road safety play, TIME, to students in Year 9.

The play tells the tale of a 14 year old called Jacob who loses his life in a road traffic accident, and demonstrated how a single moment of distraction can have a devastating effect on the lives of many.

Although a deeply moving piece, the students enjoyed the performance very much and took its message to heart.

Glowfit Lights Up Learning
Oct 4, 2018

Year 10 students have had an interesting twist on their PE lessons this week as they introduced Glowfit into their weekly fitness class!

The technique involves turning down the room lights and equipping the students with an array of luminescent accessories that make some great patterns as they swing about energetically.

Sister Teresita Declares Our Peace Garden Open
Sep 28, 2018

Our school community enjoyed a very special gathering today as we were joined by governors, many of the Sisters of Notre Dame, members of the design and build team of our new building, staff and students from some of the Notre Dame schools around the UK, and our very special guest, Sister Teresita, Congregational Leader of the Sisters of Notre Dame.

Sister Teresita works tirelessly to visit Notre Dame schools all around the world, but as the head of a global organisation her responsibilities are great, and the demands upon her time equally so, and we were blessed indeed to enjoy her company for a visit around a normal school day yesterday before returning today to formally open our Peace Garden.

Our celebration began by gathering all of our students and guests into a very full sports hall before Mr Anderson led us in song. The opening speaker was our Chair of Governors, Sister Margaret, who spoke of her sense of wonder that the olive trees in our peace garden were alive and growing two, three and even four centuries ago. During their life they have seen the birth of St. Julie Billiart and the formation and subsequent growth of the Sisters of Notre Dame, as well as the opening of every single Notre Dame school around the world. They have lived through flood, drought, world wars and civil unrest and have survived through them all, underlining the endurance of the symbol of peace.

The celebration incorporated readings from Mrs McCourt and Mr Willis, our Head Girl and Deputy Head Girls. We enjoyed a performance of 'Stand By My' from our Choir and a flag-waving, ribbon-twirling dance performance with an epic staging set to 'World In Union' and delivered with great skill and passion.

Sister Teresita then took to the podium and surprised us all by beginning her address with a beautifully rendered unaccompanied song, to great applause. She then spoke very movingly about how she came to understand what we were aiming to achieve with our Peace Garden and how important we all are, individually and collectively, in bringing peace.

Mr Alderman then closed the first part of the celebration and invited all of those present to gather within the Peace Garden.

The youngest student in our school began the procession, leading with a wooden cross, while senior students followed with a large olive wood cross bearing the words of St. Julie: "We say again and again that God is good".

Mr Alderman then led us into the simple but powerful ceremony where the 'peace bell' that stands in the garden was tolled sixteen times, once for each olive tree, and then Sister Teresita formally declared the garden open  and led us in prayer.

As a school we would like to offer our thanks to everybody who worked so hard in preparation to make the day such a success, to all of our guests, particularly those staff and students who travelled in from as far afield as London and Glasgow, and of course to Sister Teresita who herself travelled from Nigeria to join us before travelling onwards again. We hope the day lives long in all of our students.

Year 7 Party Into The School Year!
Sep 28, 2018

There was an unusual after school activity tonight for 90 Year 7 students as they enjoyed a Performing Arts Welcome Party.

The students had great fun as they enjoyed games, a disco and a talent show. Fortunately they've got the rest of the weekend to get their homework done!

Thanks to all the staff who worked hard to make the party happen.

Macmillan Coffee Morning Raises &pound;300
Sep 28, 2018

Fundraising was a piece of cake today as Year 7 and 11 Charity Representatives worked together run a Macmillan cake sale.

Hundreds of cakes were baked and donated by students from all year groups as well as some ace bakers on the staff.

Even though the tables were thronged with tasty treats the hungry queues at break time saw a big dent made in supplies within the first five minutes!

Funds raised are already over £300 and still climbing, which stands as great credit to the brilliant work done by the Charity Reps. Thank you to everyone who supported the sale.

Mayor Anderson Cuts The Ribbon!
Sep 27, 2018

We were delighted to be able to welcome Mayor Joe Anderson and Cabinet Member Cllr Barbara Murray into school for the ceremonial opening of our new building.

On a beautifully sunny afternoon Mayor Anderson met Mr Alderman and Sister Margaret, Chair of Governors, before being received by a guard of honour formed by our prefects and student representatives. 

The group shared some prayers before the Mayor put his scissors into action for the cutting of the ribbon!

After spending some time with the students our guests then visited the Dorothy Stang Theatre to enjoy two student performances before making a tour of the school.

After meeting students in classrooms, the tour concluded in our school Chapel, where the Mayor addressed all students in Year 7, speaking appreciatevely of our building and describing some of the challenges faced during Liverpool's school buidling programme that led to the successes. 

As his visit drew to a close, Mayor Anderson was very pleased to be presented with a framed print of our prayer of thanks, incorporating the 2018 Notre Dame medal.

Year 8 Think Outside The Box
Sep 27, 2018

Today Year 8 were working on 'thinking outside the box'.

Their session today with Mrs Maguire helped them understand the best ways to revise, and to work independently. Well done to Emily who cracked the nine dots puzzle the fastest! 

All of the girls agreed that the best way to absorb information was by teaching someone else, which has been confirmed by scientific studies. Some girls even suggested they would be teaching their dogs when they next had a class test!

Well done year 8!

Year 7 SEN Parent Coffee Morning
Sep 27, 2018

The parents of some of our new Year 7 pupils were invited in to school this week to meet our SENCo, Mrs Dooley and the rest of the Learning Support team.

The event was aimed at helping parents feel informed and reassured about the support on offer to their daughter and to discuss how well they've already settled in, and proved to be a huge success. All the parents found the event very helpful and one commented, "Today was a great idea! I feel I know who will be in lessons and running interventions with my daughter now. It is great that a Secondary School has such an open door policy".

More SEN parent events will be held throughout the year, and we'll keep you posted!

St. Julie&#039;s marks World Alzheimer&#039;s Day
Sep 23, 2018

Throughout last week and particularly on Friday, 21st September, students and staff marked World Alzheimer's Day with a series of assemblies and voluntary services in the Notre Dame Chapel.

Chaplaincy prefects had made a video of a poem exploring the emotions and frustrations experienced by those living with dementia and those caring for them.  Participants wrote the names of loved ones and lit candles for them in a prayerful atmosphere.  A reflection on a particular carer and her dad, Sandra and Arthur, led us into praying for all the 'Sandras and Arthurs' in our own lives.

This was a very moving day and it was good to gather in support of each other.
