Uniform

Dear parents and carers

The weather forecast for Monday seems a little unpredictable at the moment but it does seem clear that the weekend will be another hot one, which means that conditions may still be very uncomfortable in parts of the school on Monday. It also seems clear that we will back to more normal temperatures for this time of year by Tuesday, which is Founders’ Day and the sponsored walk when students are always allowed to wear PE kit anyway. Taking all this into account, we are taking the decision to return to normal school uniform on Wednesday next week.

Thank you all for your patience with PE kit. When the Met Office issued their weather warning and we first said we would allow PE kit, I don’t think anybody thought we would have such a prolonged period of exceptionally hot weather!

Kind regards

Gwyn Williams

Record Breaking Sports Day!

Our 2018 LHS Sports Day was an incredibly hot event but there was a wonderful atmosphere, with lots of cheering and encouragement from the stands and students showing so much support for eachother and their halls!

It was a lovely day all round and it seems 2018  was a great year for breaking records as 5 of our Lymm High Sports Day Records were broken. Congratulations to; N.Agia (300m), N. Dixon-Pybus (Triple Jump), L. Broadley (Girls High Jump), L. Smith (Shot Put) and A. Steed (Boys High Jump).

The winning hall after some fierce competition was Dunham!

Ladies Day

Lymm Rugby Club’s inaugural “Ladies Day” event took place on Friday 15th June to raise money for local schools.

Each year the charity lunch aims to bring together hundreds of women from across the village to ‘socialise, shop and strengthen community ties’ – all inside the Lymm Rugby Club marquee.

Around 380 ladies turned out for the event ready to raise money for the cause, along with Rachel Burke-Davies, Capital FM Radio presenter who appeared as a guest speaker to compere the event.

After enjoying a glass of champagne on arrival, guests sat down to a two-course lunch which included artisan breads, chicken breast with Parma ham and roasted vegetables followed by a yummy lemon posset for dessert.

During the day local fashion lovers got the chance to soak up all the action, with guests dressing to impress at the glamourous gathering, and the chance to enjoy a fashion show featuring clothing and accessories from local boutiques ‘Kiri’ and ‘Jessobel’.

Throughout the afternoon, ladies could browse around a range of exhibitors’ stands including handbags, jewellery, clothing, candles and beauty products.

After a fun-filled afternoon guests walked away with their very own goody bags which included make up items, cookies, a luxury tablecloth, chocolates and much more, all donated to help raise funds for Lymm schools and the rugby club.

All local schools will directly benefit from ticket sales, with proceeds split evenly between Statham, Ravenbank, Oughtrington, Little Bollington, High Legh, and Cherry Tree as well as Lymm High School.

Thank you to all our Lymm High School Ladies and especially our fabulous LHS PTA who helped organise such a wonderful event.

 

 

Student celebrates success at Cheshire Schools’ AA Track and Field and Mason Trophy Inter County Championships!

Lymm High School athlete, Jordan Jones travelled to Birmingham on Saturday 16th June, to compete in the Mason Trophy Inter Counties Schools Championships.

Representing Cheshire, the young athlete had qualified through the Cheshire Schools Track and Field Championships earlier this month, completing a solo run in the 1500m steeplechase.

During the race he smashed his personal best, knocking eight seconds off, to finish in 4.33 minutes to be crowned Cheshire Champion.

The fast time placed Jones 4th in UK’s U17’s rankings, as well as inside the English Schools qualifying time, earning him the right to represent his county at the prestigious Birmingham stadium.

Other Lymm High School athletes who competed in the Cheshire Schools’ AA Track and Field championships included Jasmine Jones, 8WL, in the Junior Girls 800m and Eva Ferris, 8DH, in the Junior Girls 1500m.

The Mason Trophy Inter Counties Schools’ Championships at Birmingham saw Jordan Jones’s summer continue to get better.

Running in the Inter Boys 1500m steeplechase, Jordan pulled away on the first lap and raced to 1st place winning Gold! Absolutely tremendous! – that’s some achievement and there’s surely more to come.

Jordan now looks forward to representing Cheshire in the English Schools Athletics Association (ESAA) Track and Field Championships in July.

We wish him the best of luck!
