Hold The Phone!
Jan 16, 2019

Year 7 Design Technology students have been busy learning about the properties of materials and in particular acrylic as they designed and manufactured their own laser-cut phone holders.

Pupils also used CAD software to support the design process and learnt about the harmful effects of over using plastics as they considered how to Reduce/Re-Use/Recycle plastic products in their own environment.

We're sure you'll agree that their products look fantastic!

Talent Over Time
Jan 16, 2019

Students at St. Julie's have once again enjoyed a challenging workshop with former pupil Ellie Birchall.

After a busy year in the industry, including performing in Elton John’s new music video ‘Benny and the Jets’, ‘Grease’ the musical and performing in the ensemble at the Southampton Mayflower Theatre, Ellie made time to come and work with our up and coming performers.

Megan Wade (another former pupil just starting out in the industry) has currently been working with the performing arts department as our technician whilst waiting upon her first audition at Disney. Both students have shared their expertise and training with our pupils. What an inspiration at every level they proved to be!

Year 9 Performers Talk Mental Health
Jan 11, 2019

A team of Year 9 students have visited a local Primary School today to deliver a performance exploring the symptoms of mental illness and mechanisms for support.

Staff at the Primary School were very complimentary of the performance, with some teachers saying it had made them emotional and made them really think about how they can support pupils in their school.

Well done to our year 9 students for an important day's work!

First Friday Goes Gold!
Jan 11, 2019

Friday, 11th January marked a special day in the life of our school.

Following on from an old Catholic tradition, on the first Friday of every month, members of our school community gather bright and early - before the start of the school day – to pray.  We do this in song, singing an old hymn and then a new hymn.   The First Friday band featuring Overwhelm and some staff musicians take the lead.

This first event of 2019 marked the 50th such occasion and was very well attended!

The old hymn was City of God - written in 1981 by an American composer, Dan Schutte.  The new hymn was Together on the Road - which was very new indeed, receiving its first airing.  This is inspired by the theme of the Archdiocesan Synod 2020.  Maybe you'll hear more of it in coming months.

This event also set us up nicely for this special year which marks 50 years since Julie Billiart became St. Julie!  

2019 – the Year of the Saint – promises to be a wonderful year and we’ll keep you informed about the various activities!  Happy New Year!

Hats Off to Dorothy - Champion House for Autumn Term!
Jan 10, 2019

In the first week of this Lent Term, Lida - the Head of Dorothy House on our 1804 Society - raised the Dorothy House flag celebrating the fact that Dorothy is the Champion House for last term. 

Dorothy House is named after Sr Dorothy Stang, SND - the Angel of the Amazon - who was murdered in 2005 because of her standing up for the indigenous people of the Brazilian rainforest against illegal logging companies.

The flag flies between those of France and Belgium on our new flagpoles in the Peace Garden at St. Julie's.   France is where St. Julie was born in 1751 and Belgium is the location of the Mother House of the Sisters of Notre Dame de Namur!

The House Champions are determined by attendance, punctuality, merits and commendations but who will it be this term?

New Reporting Portal for Harmful Internet Content
Jan 9, 2019

The UK Safer Internet Centre has created a brand new reporting portal which can be used both by children and adults to report issues such as online abuse or harrassment; threats; impersonation; unwanted sexual advances; violent or pornographic content; and content relating to self-harm or suicide.

Many of us know how difficult and frustrating it can sometimes be if you need to report anything, but there is help available. The service has been designed to:

- Provide information on community standards
- Give advice on how to report problems
- Mediate where appropriate or explain why content hasn’t been removed
- Provide assistance in removing harmful content from platforms

See HERE for further information.

The 'Advice' page gives information as to issues that cannot be reported via this portal - but also gives information about what to do with regard these issues and where they can be reported. 

Local Area SEND Inspection
Jan 8, 2019

We have been informed by the Director of Liverpool's Children's Services that there will be a Local Authority Inspection of provision for pupils with Special Educational Needs or Disabilities (SEND), to take place between 14th and 18th January. Although St Julie's is not one of the 8 schools that will be visited as part of this inspection, all parents of children attending Liverpool schools are entitled to share - via the Online Portal, which can be accessed by following the instructions in this linked document, their views regarding provision for pupils with SEND

Further information regarding the Inspection can be found in the further linked document 'OFSTED and CQC Inspection of Local Areas'.

Fun in the Park
Jan 8, 2019

What were you doing two days after Christmas?

If you live near Wavertree Park, you may have seen the very colourful sight of over 200 runners hurtling, jogging, walking, dawdling with dogs and pushing prams around the park.

It was the 35th annual CAFOD Fun Run and, once more, St. Julie’s played a part in making it a success.   CAFOD do amazing work in the developing world and it was good to be part of this fundraising effort at Christmas.

Maisie and Jemma from Year 9 and Daisy, Emily and Niamh from Year 8 joined Mrs McCourt and her children and Mr Anderson and his family (including dog, Diego), in cheering on the participants, giving out water, certificates and, very importantly, energy-giving jelly babies!

The Fun Run is on the 27th December every year at 1:00 p.m.   Why not put it in your diary now?
