Golf Day

Local golfers are raising funds for the Lymm High School “Pitch In” project.

We are looking to raise £100,000, which will be match funded by the government, to pay for a state of the art artificial sports pitch which will not only benefit the students but the local community too.

Big Red Events, with the kind support of Lymm Golf Club, are hoping to support this fantastic initiative with a Golf Day, taking place on Friday 4th May 2018, at Lymm Golf Club. The event will begin at 1.00 pm with great prizes, refreshments and a raffle on offer, followed by an informal meal and prize presentation.

We do hope you can support the golf day in whatever way you can. Be it attending and playing, donating prizes, raffle prizes or sponsorship. All will be greatly received.

Entry is £140 per 4 person team! To enter a team, please make payment to Big Red Events Limited, Sort code – 30-98-97, Account no – 46396268, stating your team name in the reference section. We do hope you can support our event for this great cause!

The Robots are Coming!

On Wednesday of this week, Year 9 braved the snowy conditions to visit the University of Manchester to hear a lecture presented by Professor Danielle George a BBC Science presenter and Vice Dean at Manchester University.

 

Her talk was entitled “The Robots are Coming” and she explained how robots can now carry out everyday tasks with ease. She demonstrated how a robot could solve a Rubik’s Cube (in a fraction of the time of a human) and she set up a full robotic orchestra with the help of two of our students who volunteered and half a dozen others from the audience!

 

We would like to thanks the Rotary Club for organising and hosting the lecture and our own Rotary Club of Lymm for their sponsoring of the tickets and transport for the event. The pupils were a credit to our school, very much appreciated the opportunity given to them and had a very enjoyable afternoon!

Adverse Weather

As you may be aware, there is the possibility of snow and ice this week and we want to remind parents and carers of our procedures should school ever need to close.

In the event of any closure, details will be provided via:

  • Text messages (to the usual priority contact number we have on file)
  • School website
  • Our Twitter feed
  • The school Facebook page

We will not set specific work for students, but we do expect all students with exams this year (including Year 10, who are sitting GCSE English Literature) to spend the time revising. In line with our usual expectations, we would also encourage all students to spend time reading anything that takes their interest.

It is important to stress that we fully expect school to remain open this week and the measures above are just a precaution in case the weather does turn out to be worse than expected.

We understand that school closures can cause significant problems for families and we will always do all we can to remain open – even if that is just remaining open for supervision of students for whom parents cannot arrange appropriate childcare at short notice. However, I am sure you will appreciate that health and safety always has to be the main concern.

Given that roads might be icy, we would also like to suggest that students come to school in footwear with good grip – if needs be, carrying their school shoes in their bag and putting them on when they arrive.

Kind regards

Gwyn Williams

Headteacher
