Mental Health Day 3: Social Media
May 15, 2019

It is hard for many young people to escape the pressures of social media. There is no switching off for many students as the popularity of it grows. Today the students were invited to watch a performance based on the pressures of social media and how people can do things to try and fit in.

The drama performance consisted of a young girl who has trusted in a boy and sent him a photograph of herself. She struggled to cope with the pressure and bullying from other young girls when they found out.

The message of the story was to seek support from those around you. It doesn't matter how bad you think your situation is, with help, it can get better.

This will be performed again tomorrow, check back for the video.

Mental Health Day 2: Bullying
May 14, 2019

Today there was a second performance based on an aspect on mental health. Today's performance was based on the effects of bullying and how bullying, both verbal and physical, can have a detrimental effect on our mental health. 

Students from years 7-10 performed a dance based on this. The spoken word told the story of a brother and sister who were bullied growing up. 

The message to take away from today's performance was to choose your words carefully, be kind always and stand up for what is right! 

Well done to the performers for a powerful delivery!

Mental Health Day 1: Well-being
May 14, 2019

As it is Mental Health Awareness week, there will be a difference performance each day at lunch time, each focusing on a difference part of mental health.

Today our ltalented Year 9 student, Grace, performed her original song 'Crystal'. This fitted perfectly with today's theme of positive well-being. The song looks at how people take comfort in healing crystals and how the crystals can change your way of thinking, supporting a more positive outlook on life and situations. You can watch a short clip on Grace performing below.

Students were set the task to go home and do one thing they enjoy to promote positive well-being. Whether that is walking the dog, an evening without social media, putting on a face mask, watching your favourite show with a chocolate bar or meeting up with friends. What will you do to help support with positive well-being?

Peace Garden - Quest for Peace
May 13, 2019

On a beautifully sunny day, the Peace Garden at St. Julie's hosted a new activity - The Quest for Peace.  Mr Bennett's wonderful Year 8 R.E. class ventured outside and participated in a "treasure hunt" style learning activity where they explored the 16 stations in our Peace Garden.   These stations can be found by each of the olive trees which have for so long been symbols of peace. (Incidentally, the oldest of these olive trees is over 300 years old so was on the planet even before St. Julie was born in 1751!)

The session started with the sounding of The Peace Bell after which the learners explored the Peace Garden stations in groups, finding information about the inspirational people who are beacons to follow in the quest for peace in our world.

The stations were devised by members of our 1804 Society (the senior students in the school) and they look at a range of issues including compassion, ethical enterprise, literature and political action.

The Peace Bell pealed once more to call participants to re-gather and some of the answers were shared. The session closed with a prayer for our Y11 students as they started their GCSE exams.   

We look forward to holding more events in our Peace Garden.

Congratulations Jodie!
May 12, 2019

We'd like to give a massive congratulations to former student Jodie Comer for her Bafta Award for best leading actress!

Following her previous Bafta nomination for her role in 'Thirteen', hopes were high this year following the massive international success of 'Killing Eve'. The role showcased Jodie's great versatility and has been recommissioned for a second series. 

Jodie has continued to be a fantastic role model for our talented performers and we look forward to watching her success as her career continues from strength to strength.

Well done Jodie!

A Watchful Presence
May 10, 2019

Last year, our Year 11 students requested that the statue of St. Julie (which lives in our Notre Dame Chapel) be brought down to the Sports Hall while they were doing their GCSE Exams.  It was a reminder that St. Julie watches over them and was a focal point for their prayer during moments in exams when they maybe needed some calm and clarity of thinking.

So, today - in anticipation of the GCSE Exams which start in earnest on Monday, some of our 6th Formers carried the statue of St. Julie and its plinth to the Sports Hall as an act of service to the year group who follow them.

We hope this will give comfort and re-assurance to all sitting exams and we assure them they will be in the prayers of everyone in this Catholic learning community.

Each exam will also start with our Exam Prayer - which you can find on our Prayer Wall  and below:

TV Star Returns to Teach Masterclass
May 9, 2019

This week the Performing Arts department were pleased to welcome back former student, Katherine-Rose Morley to deliver a masterclass in acting.

After leaving St Julie’s, Katherine went to train at Guildhall school of music and drama and since graduating has worked professionally on stage and screen including, Call the Midwife, Vera, The Last Tango in Halifax and many other well known shows.

Katherine is currently staring in the channel 5, 10 part drama, The Clink. Katherine worked with our aspiring actors on different skills and techniques before giving students an insight into auditioning for drama schools and professional jobs.

Her wise words of ‘If it’s something you love, it’s worth working and fighting for’ was a great message that inspired our students. We look forward to inviting Katherine back in the near furture to catch up with our girls and see how they are progressing with their acting.
