Overwhelm At OLA
Mar 25, 2019

Overwhelm, the school’s music ministry team, are regular visitors to Our Lady of the Assumption Parish and were delighted to join the parishioners and pupils from St. Gregory’s Primary School once more this weekend.

During the Mass for the 3rd Sunday of Lent, Overwhelm played and sang really well, mixing some old favourites like Shine, Jesus, Shine with a new setting of the psalm of the day.

Father Stephen did a rather splendid magic trick in his sermon with a tube and coloured cloths which blew everyone’s mind as he explained how Lent, Holy Week and Easter are connected.

Overwhelm took the opportunity to present a freshly commissioned statue of St. Julie to the parish community in recognition of the Golden Anniversary of the canonisation of St. Julie.

In a wonderful coincidence, a visiting member of the congregation came up afterwards to say that she had actually been in St. Peter’s in Rome for the canonisation on Friday, 22nd June, 1969!

Awards Rush At Wirral Festival
Mar 25, 2019

St. Julie's performers have had a fantastic weekend at the Wirral Music Festival with both group and individual wins.

The day started with an early cheer as Katie in Year 8 took 4th place in the piano solos category against a field of many older students. Anna and Evie took the first win of the day in the vocal duet category with their performance of Delibes' 'Flower Duet'.

Anna won the musical theatre category in a field of 18 entrants, singing 'Pulled' from the Addams Family musical. The joint choir then placed third in the open choir category with only 2 points separating the top three places. The senior choir came first in the chamber choir category with a score of 86 points. 

Ellen in Year 8 and Evie in Year 7 competed in the pop vocals category, receiving some excellent feedback from the adjudicator. Isobel took 4th place in the open musical theatre category against a giant field of 35. Our songwriters also performed strongly with Amber, Grace and Taylor taking 2nd, 3rd and 4th places respectively in the songwriting category.

Congratulations to all of the performers.

WhatUni? WhatCareer? Live! Exhibition
Mar 22, 2019

Today Year 12 students ventured to the Exhibition Centre Liverpool to find out more about their futures. The visit enabled students to see what options are available to them; whether that be an apprenticeship; traineeship or university.

Students have talked to a range of advisors from many exciting and diverse career sectors ranging from Amazon and DeLoitte to the NHS and Unilever.

Additionally, they have attended presentations delivered by the University of Liverpool, Newcastle, Queens Belfast and UCL to name but a few. They also had the option to attend the CV surgery for important CV writing guidance.

Stepping Up To Showcase Dance!
Mar 21, 2019

Last night over 75 students performed in our Dance Showcase to a sold out audience. The evening was filled with joy, fun and emotion! 

The audience were overwhelmed with the talent, dedication and professionalism of our wonderful performers. 

Mrs Heeley was quick to thank all of the students who performed: "I am very proud of each and everyone of you for getting up and performing with such confidence. You were all amazing and I was overwhelmed by the passion and enthusiasm that was displayed, by all, who performed.'

We can't wait for the next one, but until then you can enjoy this week's performance in full in the video below!

Government calls for a review of National Autism Strategy
Mar 18, 2019

On 14th March 2019, the Department of Health and Social Care has launched a national call for evidence to inform their review of the Autism Strategy. The aim of the review is to see if the National Autism Strategy should be extended to include children as well as adults.

The call for evidence is inviting views from autistic people, their families and carers as well as those of professionals. It is aimed at finding out what is working, where progress has been made and, importantly, where we need to push harder to transform the lives of autistic people, their families and carers.

The call for evidence can be accessed online at the following link https://consultations.dh.gov.uk/autism/2e4ae18d and is open for responses until 16 May 2019. 

Attendance Matters
Mar 15, 2019

This poster outlines all of our responsibilities in supporting good attendance and also gives very clear evidence from our own Year 11 and 13 students last of the correlation between good attendance and performance in examinations.

In Year 11 last year, students with 97% or above attendance were twice as likely to get top 9-7 grades in their GCSE as those with attendance between 94 and 96.99% and over ten times as likely to get top 9-7 grades as those with attendance between 87 and 93.99%. No students with attendance of below 87% achieved a 9-7 grade in any subject.

The drop-off in attainment really starts when students' attendance falls below 97%  (so not having 100% attendance is not a guarantee that performance will dip  - but it does show that our minimum expectation is 97% for a reason)

In Year 13 last year, students with the best attendance did on average 15 points - equivalent to a grade and a half - better in their A Level qualifications than students with attendance of below 91%. 

Students Respond to New Zealand Tragedy
Mar 15, 2019

On Friday, 15th March, the bell in the Peace Garden at St. Julie’stolled to call people to prayer in response to the terrible events of earlier that day in Christchurch, New Zealand. 

Over 300 students and staff gathered in their break time to reflect on this atrocity and to express our solidarity with those directly affected.

After a short reflection featuring the words of New Zealand Prime Minister, Jacinda Adern, who had defiantly said "They are us", prayers were offered in Arabic and English.   

The Peace Bell then tolled 49 times - once for each victim who had lost their life.   Later, a Book of Condolence was available in the Chapel.

Welcome To Our Newest Students!
Mar 15, 2019

Students from across our new Year 7 got the chance to meet each other as a year group for the first time at our student welcome event this week.

Always a highlight of our school calendar, the new students who have recently received news of their place at St. Julie's came along with their parents.

As our event began, the students made their way to the Chapel to engage and be entertained by Overwhelm as they sang some familiar songs and learned some new ones.

Meanwhile, parents visited the Dorothy Stang Theatre for a presentation from Mrs McCourt talking about what their daughters can expect from St. Julie's, and what we'll be expecting of them!

The two groups were then reunited virtually with a video broadcast of the new students performing 'Qui'l Est Bon' beamed into the theatre to the watching parents.

Thank you to everybody involved in making the event such a success, and we hope it helps our newest members of the community make a flying start in September.

Fair Trade in Humanities at St. Julie's!
Mar 15, 2019

Fair Trade Fortnight took place last week and the week before, so Ms Jones gathered together a group of keen geographers to head up a campaign to raise the profile of the importance of people buying Fair Trade goods so that workers involved in their production receive a fairer wage for their work. 

The girls worked really hard with Ms Jones and the donations of Fair Trade goodies they had been given (thank you to the generous contributors of the goodies!), and raffled off the products. 

There were 3 prizes available; Mrs Naylor won 3rd prize, Annas in Year 7 won 2nd prize, and Leah in Year 8 won the 1st prize hamper.  

Well done and thank you to all involved!
