Celebrating Talents
Nov 16, 2018

This week our Performing Arts Ambassadors have been leading the way with their inspirational assembly based on talents.

They have shared their message of having a dream and working hard to achieve it, by using their own talents in dance, drama and singing to do so.

Well done to our ambassadors who are standing proud as Performing Arts role models! 


Drum Workshop With Jeff Rich
Nov 16, 2018

Year 8 students moved to a new beat this week as they enjoyed a drum workshop with Jeff Rich, former drummer of Status Quo.

The 100 minute workshop explored some of the history of percussion and instruments from around the world, before a demonstration of some drum rudiments and a tour of the extended rock kit.

After a blistering solo that you can see in the video below, all students performed in one of two hundred strong percussion ensembles which we're sure everybody in Block C of the building enjoyed! Finally, some of our talented student drummers were invited to showcase their skills on Jeff's professional kit.

Thanks to everyone involved in the workshop for making it such a memorable afternoon.

 


Year 10 Parents Evening
Nov 15, 2018

Thank you to all of the parents who came to the Year 10 parents evening for helping to make it such a positive event.

The support of parents is always appreciated, and engagement at this stage of the Key Stage 4 course is particularly valuable.

Our 1804 Society greeters were certainly kept busy with the huge numbers of parents in attendance!

 


Could you be a Foster Parent?
Nov 15, 2018

Liverpool has over 1,200 looked after children. Could you foster one? Phil Watson does, and his family have been fostering for Liverpool City Council since 2010.

Phil says "It can be challenging, exhausting, hilarious, but above all rewarding.  I can see the difference we are making to the children we have looked after. 

We chose to foster for the Council, because they don’t make a profit. This is very different from the Independent Fostering Agencies that operate in the city. We have fostered seven kids since we started. We had one little lad for four hours and one kid for over five years!  We can’t solve all their problems, but we know when those kids are with us, they are safe"

Foster carers need to be over 21, have a clean criminal record, be healthy and have a spare room.  You can be of any class, culture, heritage or sexual orientation. You can be single, in a relationship, own your home or rent. You don’t need to give up work to foster, as long as your work is flexible enough to cope with the demands of looking after a child.

As well as being paid, foster carers are exempt from Council Tax and get free Lifestyles Gym Membership.  Full training and support is given. Liverpool City Council are actively looking to find new carers. 

If you are interested in finding out more about fostering for Liverpool, contact Phil Watson at Phil.Watson@liverpool.gov.uk or visit www.fostering.liverpool.gov.uk.


Year 13 French Students Experience Paris
Nov 11, 2018

Year 13 French students are having an incredible experience discovering Paris. Here is a field report from Bridie Nesbitt-Scott:

"Year 13 French students are having a fantastic time discovering the city of Paris. From the art to experiencing the architecture of Paris from the heights of Notre Dame, we have appreciated Paris in all its wealth.

We have had the opprtunity to experience Remembrance Sunday in another country which has broadened our view of society as we have considered the French perspective of the centenary of the war.

The chance to participate in the French way of life has been exhilarating for us with our French skills being truly exercised as we walk through the streets of Paris.


St. Julie's Represented at City Service
Nov 11, 2018

Following our own St. Julie's Service of Remembrance, two of our 1804 Society students represented us at the City of Liverpool Commemoration and Remembrance Service on the 100th anniversary of the signing of the Armistice on Sunday, 11th November.

Deputy Head Girl Katherine and Communications Co-ordinator Alana gave up their Sunday morning to lay a wreath on behalf of us all at the Cenotaph at St. George's Hall. This is the biggest Remembrance service outside of London and it was an honour to see the veterans, armed services and other uniformed organisations marching.

Prayers were led by our own Archbishop Malcom and the Anglican Bishop Paul.  There was also a moving prayer from the Muslim tradition - a sign of this great multi-cultural and multi-faith city.  We also met the new Anglican Bishop of Warrington, Beverly, who was most impressed to see St. Julie's represented.

The silence was started and ended by a field gun firing a blank shell and the fluttering poppies were a poignant reminder of the fallen.

We will remember them.


A History of Remembrance
Nov 9, 2018

11am on the 11th of November 2018 marks the 100th anniversary of the end of WW1.

The importance of this hugely significant milestone needed to be understood by pupils at St. Julie's, so the Humanities department set to work to ensure that the history of WW1, Remembrance Day and the ongoing associated impacts of war were understood by our pupils.

Pupils were given a range of opportunities to engage with the events of WW1 in the week leading up to Remembrance Day. History lessons focused on the causes and impacts of WW1; other subject areas were encouraged to incorporate aspects of WW1 into their lessons (e.g. the geographical locations of soldiers' home countries, and using the numbers of people who died in WW1 from different countries to calculate percentages in Maths); Mrs Naylor spent hours at home researching, preparing and creating an amazing display to commemorate WW1 up in the Humanities department; and PSHE was focused on the British Legion campaign of 'everyone remembered' for a thank you to those who served in WW1.

For the PSHE lesson the History department prepared information about the different ways in which people were affected by WW1, including children, women and those from British colonies, for form tutors to present and discuss with classes. Pupils were then told about the way in which WW1 affected Liverpool and Merseyside by focusing on the deaths of members of the King's Liverpool regiment - the 'Liverpool Pals' - over 7000 men were killed in WW1 from this regiment alone.

Wooden crosses designed and made by Mr Radburn in Technology were provided to classes, and pupils chose the name of a soldier from the Liverpool Pals to write on a poppy. These poppies were then stuck on the wooden crosses ready for the whole school Remembrance service.

Mr Anderson did an amazing job at organising the service, and form representatives were able to present their crosses during the service. Following on from the service, some of our Sixth Formers from Humanities helped to place the wooden crosses in the grass in front of our Peace Garden in rows to be symbolic of a graveyard.

The effect of this is that anyone looking out on the Peace Garden or walking past can see and reflect on the 1000+ names of men who died in WW1 from our local area. It is hugely moving and emotional, and an effective way of us respecting and remembering the sacrifices made then, and now, for our freedom.


St. Julie's Remembers
Nov 9, 2018

The entire St. Julie's school community gathered today in our Peace Garden to unite in an act of Remembrance, marking 100 years since the end of 'the war to end all wars'.

Staff, students and governors stood in respectful silence as we were led through readings and prayers before the ceremonial laying of wreaths and the sounding of the last post. 

Our minute of silence began with a whistle - the sound dreaded by men in the trenches which signalled the action of going 'over the top' - and finished with the peace bell being tolled for the one hundredth time this week.

You can see video of the ceremony below.


Diamonds By The Dozen
Nov 9, 2018

Congratulations to our talented Sixth Form Music students for a flawless set of 12 songs in their assessed performance this week.

Evie, Anna, Louise and Lucy wowed their audience with as set of songs including vocal and instrumental solos, duets and group perfomances. No prerecorded music was used thanks to the skills of musicians Messrs Smith, Cookson, Quinn and Radburn, with a special appearance by Mrs Wood bringing cello accompaniment. Sound and lighting, as well as some brilliant vocal coaching, were perfectly handled by the multi-talented Mrs Boardman Jones.

Thank you to everyone who came along to support the performers, and to Mrs Mannings for photos. You can enjoy the whole show in the video above!
