St. Julie's Building Shortlisted for Design Ward
Jul 13, 2019

On Friday 12 July Mr Alderman attended the North West Construction Awards, at the invitation of Kier Construction.

St Julie's Catholic High School was one of 6 construction projects in Liverpool that were short listed for a North West regional award, 2019. Architects IBI Taylor Young designed our building and Kier Construction built it. These are highly competitive and prestigious awards, so being shortlisted in the final 6 projects was a significant achievement. In the end, Kier won both the sub-regional and regional top spot with their FA football project Park Life.

It was a great honour to be invited to these awards and we would like to thank Kier for building us such an inspirational learning space.


Happy Birthday St. Julie!
Jul 12, 2019

We had a day of glorious celebration today, albeit with slightly mixed emotions, as Sister Margaret joined the rest of the school community to celebrate St. Julie's birthday.

All students joined staff and governors as we gathered in the Peace Garden for the ceremonial opening of our newly constructed bell tower. Our joy was tinged with a little sadness as the opening was to be among the final official duties of our Chair of Governors before stepping away from the position.

The ceremony incorporated words from staff and students as we reflected on the life of our Founder and the joy she found in the Good God. We even channeled St. Julie's indefatigable optimism as we prayed for a break in the weather during the rain soaked day, and our prayers were answered as the clouds parted in perfect timing to allow a breathtaking dance to safely take place.

In the most poignant part of the ceremony, Sister Margaret held a baton symbolising the spirit of St. Julie, and asked us to "take it, reflect on what it stands for, and pass it on through the generations so all might know the goodness of God." The baton was then handed to Miss McKean, a former pupil, and then on to a member of each Year Group before all the baton holders processed to the Chapel where, in solitude away from the crowd, they made a solemn prayer reflecting the gravity of the task they are undertaking.

Shortly after this, Sister Margaret was invited to take the scissors and cut the golden ribbon marking the bell tower open. She did this to great cheers, and then became the first to toll the bell.

The Chair of Governors plays a vital role in the operation of every school, but all too often in the eyes of students they can be mysterious, even slightly scary figures whose role isn't understood very well. This has never been the case with Sister Margaret, who is a welcome and familiar presence in our school, known to all of the students. If the cordiality of our students and the warmth of their greetings (sometimes through open windows!) were not enough, we hope that the cheers at today's celebration left Sister Margaret in absolutely no doubt of the trust, respect, affection and high regard she inspires in our students. We offer our sincere gratitude and warmest wishes for her long and happy future.

The ceremony is available in full in the video below, and lasts for only twenty minutes or so. We'd be honoured if you'd take the time to watch it.

 


Sister Margaret Unveils Artwork
Jul 12, 2019

On her visit to school today Sister Margaret, Chair of Governors, unveiled the new glass artwork that forms the setting for the icon of Our Lady of Perpetual Help.

In the short ceremony in the school Chapel, Sister Margaret was reunited with the pilgrims from the recent visit to Rome, and spoke to them about the symbolism of the objects they took with them. These included the replica icon and an olivewood cross incorporating a relic in the form of a bone fragment from the mortal remains of St. Julie.

Sister Margaret explained that though this might seem a little macabre in the 21st Century, it represents a centuries old tradition of religious relics, and she went on to talk about their significance.

We then enjoyed a performance of a new hymn by 'Overwhelm', our music ministry, who then presented Sister Margaret with honourary membership!

Finally, Sister Margaret placed the icon of Our Lady in the new setting of golden glass.


Year 7 Duck, Dip, Dive and Dodge!
Jul 12, 2019

Students in Year 7 have been letting off some end of year steam with a high energy dodgeball tournament raising funds for the British Heart Foundation.

The Sports Hall became of maelstrom of whizzing balls as our Sports Ambassadors led the games. Perhaps the biggest grudge match of the day was the fiercely competitive Staff v Sixth Form match that rounded off the tournament!

Thanks to Miss Corrigan, the PE staff and Sports Ambassadors for creating such a fun event, and to our hard working Sixth Form team for supporting the operation and managing the all important refreshments.


Challenge Club 2019
Jul 10, 2019

A number of Year 7 and 8 students have completed the Humanities Challenge Club this term.

The particpants were tasked with an enquiry question and shown how to write a scientific report with their findings. The task for this year was a topic which is being highly publicised at the minute, and one the pupils feel very passionately about; "Climate Change: A new problem or just history repeating itself?" 

The students needed to understand both the human and natural causes of climate change, including the Milankovitch Cycle! They completed their own independent research to aid their report, as well as processing and analysing that data to come to valid and justified conclusions.

The students worked exceptionally hard and made the judging process very difficult, the standard was so high!

After much deliberation the Humanities department did manage to find an overall winner...Jasmine! Congratulations to Jasmine and a huge well done to the rest of the Challenge Club! It will be up and running again in the next academic year.


Year 7 Go Walkabout!
Jul 9, 2019

On Thursday 4th July 80 of our year 7 students took to the woodlands of Cholmondeley Castle in Cheshire to participate in a 3-day 'Bushcraft' weekend - organised by The Bushcraft Company - an outdoor activities group.

They camped in tents of 10 and the aim was to promote social interaction, with phones and devices staying at home, and learn new skills from First Aid; Bush Survival; Team Building; Safe Handling of equipment/knives; how to safely make a fire; wood carving techniques; making tribal bracelets and even ponassing salmon! Some of our more heroic students even took on the bushtucker challenge of eating the fish eyeballs!

All of the girls rose to the challenges they faced, and their indomitable good spirits and constant regard for each other's welfare culminated in them being described as the best group the Bushcraft company had ever had. They made all of us extremely proud. 


Performing Arts Bring The Glitz for Oscars Night!
Jul 9, 2019

Woolton Picturehouse became the place to be this week as Performing Arts hosted their own Oscars awards night!

Students tasted the Hollywood experience with their red carpet arrival in front of the paparazzi, before being greeted with a mock pink prosecco cocktail, popcorn and a goody bag.

It was then swiftly onto to the main event, as awards were presented in cateogries within Dance, Drama and Music.

We closed the evening with the presentation of our special headline awards, which were determined by staff in recognition of outstanding commitment to the arts this year:

Actor of the year – Rachel Whitfield

Dancer of the year - Ella Hoey

Singer of the Year- Bridgid Nebsitt Scott

Musician of the Year- Louise Bramwell

Life time achievement award for commitment to performing arts – Amber Wheeler

Congratulations to these hugely talented performers and of course to all of our wonderful winners on the night.


Prom Night For Year 11
Jul 9, 2019

After the stress and pressure of the exam season, our Year 11 students have dialled up the style to celebrate at Prom Night!

The red carpet outside the Hallmark Alicia Hotel in Sefton Park was graced with elegance and poise as students posed for photographs outside before being greeted by Mrs Navarro.

The room was decorated beautifully for the presentation of awards in categories that were voted for by students but winners chosen by form tutors!

The evening was very much about joy and celebration and staff who attended felt very proud to be a part of the event.

Enjoy the photos!


Super Strike From Notre Dame Student
Jul 7, 2019

Local football fans who were disheartened by the Lionesses semi-final departure from the World Cup can take solace from a different winning connection.

The USA lifted the trophy after a decisive second goal which was a magnificent solo effort from Rose Lavelle. Rose was a student at Mount Notre Dame High School in Cincinnati, Ohio, and they are very proud indeed of their World Cup winning student. 

It's good to know that at least some part of the trophy is staying in the family!


Aloha Maths!
Jul 5, 2019

Our Maths Department have hosted their annual party day, and this year we've had a Hawaiian theme.

Students have enjoyed dressing in hula skirts and floral lei while playing authentic Hawaiian dice games and testing their skills in cup stacking (sometimes while blindfolded) - judged in co-operative and strategic skills, speed and scale!

Of course, the whole day's activities have been to the soundtrack of island tunes.

Thanks to the Maths team for making such a fun day, and to all the students for taking part in such good spirits.
