We've taken some time to reflect on what a wonderful 'Year of St Julie' we had in 2016, and we'd like to share that with you.
The video below shows show of the highlights of our packed year as well as some personal reflections from members of our 1804 Society about the impact that the celebrations had on them.
As always, you can always keep a finger on the pulse of the spiritual life of our school community at the Chaplaincy Website. We hope you enjoy the video!
Well, St. Julie’s has done it again! It’s another first, we believe, in the worldwide community of Notre Dame Schools.
On Thursday, 16th February, the inaugural Across the Ocean service took place joining students and staff from the Academy of Notre Dame, Tyngsboro, Massachusetts, USA with two hundred students and staff of St. Julie’s. This event had been postponed from last week when the Academy of Notre Dame was closed due to snow in Massachusetts but it didn’t put us off.
The two schools collaborated to celebrate our shared Notre Dame heritage and, of course, our patron saint. There were greetings, a poem, a dance, prayers, video diaries and our favourite hymns. We even sang “Happy Birthday” to Paige in Y8.
It was brilliant to see our sister students from across the ocean and to hear the different accents which emphasised the diversity of this great community founded all those years ago by St. Julie – a community which started with just three women taking vows in the French town of Amiens. Here we are, over two hundred years later, and over three thousand miles apart, still remembering and singing the words of St. Julie: "Qu’il est bon, le bon Dieu!"
Thanks to all who participated and to those who did the fancy technical stuff which enabled us to join hearts Across the Ocean!
Parents, staff, students, governors and invited guests have joined together at Hope University to celebrate the launch of the St. Julie's Scholars' Programme.
The launch began with a performance from our school choir, before the keynote address from Professor Gerald Pillay, Vice Chancellor of Liverpool Hope University, who spoke warmly of the common Notre Dame foundations that our educational establishments are built on.
We were delighted to welcome back former student Beth Comer who gave an inspiring account of how she had made the most of all of the opportunities that she was offered at St. Julie's and how it contributed to the development of her career in teaching. Beth then introduced Niamh Fowler, who presented via video.
Curriculum Leaders for English and Maths, Miss Sarson and Miss Lee, then spoke about strategies the departments are employing to ensure that our most able students are stretched and challenged, before current student Megan Lester told us of her positive experiences studying at our school.
Mrs McCourt gave a detailed description of the plans put in place for the Scholars' Programme including STEM activities, our partnerships with Lloyds Banking Group and our exciting plans with the Brilliant Club.
Mr Alderman closed our launch with a final address before the School Choir again took to the stage with a performance of 'Halo'.
Thank you to all the guests who came along to join us, and we're looking forward to bringing your more updates throughout the year.
Ellie Morris has had another fantastic Judo tournament, this time at the Copa de Espana held in Alicante.
Ellie's path to gold took her through five competitive fights, all of which she won.
Mr Alderman was quick to praise Ellie's latest achievement: "Once again we are delighted with Ellie's incredible success. Ellie has great talent in this field and it shows with her many gold medals. We are all very proud of Ellie and her achievements and we are kept up to date by her parents, which really helps."
The St Julie's dancers have landed after an amazing trip to New York. A group of 20 students, accompanied by Mrs Boardman-Jones, Miss Stephenson and Mrs Bridges, left on Friday for a fun filled trip to the Big Apple.
The group managed to fit in a long list of activites: a trip to the top of the Rockefeller, Madame Tussaud's, Times Square, School of Rock, and lots, lots more, including not least three dance workshops with Broadway professionals.
As always, the girls were complimented on their fantastic behaviour. Keep your eyes peeled for more photographs from the trip.
We'd like to say a big thank you to Miss Roberts for using her amazing knowledge of New York to organise such a memorable experience!
St Julie’s pupils’ were recently invited to participate in the Garston/South Liverpool Rotary Club photographic competition. The theme was ‘Reflection’ and the competition was open to all year groups. Entries included landscapes, water, self-portraits and a very creative interpretation utilising Anthony Gormley’s ‘iron men’ at Crosby.
Eight pupils submitted their work in the Secondary Schools category which was displayed and discussed in detail by chief judge Irene Drummond of the South Liverpool Photographic Society at the prize giving event last night to an audience that included pupils, parents and local Rotarians.
I am pleased to say that three pupils received prizes at the event where Scarlet McGowan also received a certificate of commendation for her work. Runner’s up were Lucy Hinton (year 8) and Medb Elliot-Pearson (year 7) and the overall winner of the competition was Milli Smith (year 10). You can see all of the competition entries at the Technology Department's Creative Gallery.
We are looking forward to participating in this event again next year and pupils should keep an eye out for future photographic competitions to be announced shortly.
Congratulations to the students in our Drama Company who performed at the 2017 Now Festival for their superb winning performance!
Nearly two hundred children and young people from local schools delivered a range of dramatic performances at the Epstein Theatre exploring mental health and their rights as children during Children’s Mental Health Week.
Our students performed a hard hitting piece entitled 'Hide and Seek' based on Article 35, 'Governments must protect children from being abducted, sold or moved illegally to a different place in or outside their country for the purpose of exploitation.'
The girl’s performance was awarded 'Overall Best Performance' of the 3 day festival. Congratulations to all of them, and to Miss Douglas for her hard work in preparation.
On Thursday 9th February a group of year 12 students delivered their final presentations as part of the Higher Education Plus scheme.
Higher Education Plus involved the girls working collaboratively with students from all over Liverpool over a number of events to develop and deliver a research project. The scheme is promoted and supported by Cambridge University and aims to develop independent learning, collaborative planning and presentations skills.
The presentations were fantastic and will help support the girls in application to competitive Universities, so a huge well done to Evie, Emily, Isobel, Caitlin, Amber, Megan, Georgia, Amy, Bethany and Charlotte for their hard work on this prestigious programme!
On Monday 6th February members of the school's 1804 Society visited our sister school in London - Notre Dame Southwark.
The girls met with staff and students of the school and discussed the importance of a Notre Dame education and their work in the celebrations of the Year of St Julie. They then enjoyed a tour of the school and ate lunch with senior members of the student council, amongst other activities.
Well done to all the students involved for a really successful visit!
Sixth form students who take A Level English Literature are watching a Royal Shakespeare Company live broadcast of King Lear this morning. They have been joined by students from Year 10 who are considering taking English Literature as an option.
The live broadcast supports students' understanding of the genre of tragedy, which is one of the units studied for A Level. Students are being challenged to watch and ask questions with the RSC actors and presenters explaining a number of key concepts as the play progresses.
This innovative broadcast is currently being watched live by schools across Great Britain and Northern Ireland. This is just one of the many opportunities students have, here at St. Julie's to stretch their understanding of English.
Thank you to Mrs Bridges for organising this event. Watch this space for future broadcasts!
