We would like to warmly welcome all year 9 students and parents to Lymm High School’s Year 9 Choices Evening.
Well Done to Amber Agar, 7AH, who is the proud recipient of a brand new laptop.
We held our Hall Points Rewards Raffle today at break time and the top 20% of pupils who had received the most Hall points were entered into a raffle, and Amber won!!
Next term we will be running a new Hall Points Prize Pyramid with the top prize being a Swegway Breezeboard, kindly supplied by Breeze Board Pro, located at Chill Factore.
As part of our drive to support the wider community, this half term students have been supporting Manchester Street Angels who support the homeless people in the Manchester and Warrington area. Students were asked to support the shoebox collection by bringing in items such as warm hats and gloves, high energy food such as biscuits and chocolate and toiletries such as toothpaste, tooth brushes and soap.
Again the support for this was superb, we had over 100 boxes donated and many loose items as well. The students will have made a real difference and gone a long way to spreading a bit of festive cheer!
We would be really grateful if you could take the time to fill in our online questionnaire about the Year 6 to Year 7 transition process. We really value your feedback and will use it to further improve our processes in the future.
Thank you for the continued support
Once again Lymm High School students have shown how generous they can be, by donating nearly 900kg of food to the Trussell Trust during October for the Warrington Food Bank.
Code named Operation Hippo, students were set the challenge of bringing in food donations that, combined, would match the weight of a Hippopotamus.
They did not disappoint, showing a sense of community, empathy and generosity that meant the Warrington Trussell Trust had to come into school to take collection more than three times in the space of a couple of weeks. At one stage, the staff room was overflowing with trays of donations!
Richard Hughes, Head of Ethos, said: ‘This was a whole school challenge, increasing the rivalry between our different halls and form groups. Particular recognition should go to two year 8 forms, 8TL and 8MH, who donated 240 kilograms of food between them! The level of enthusiasm and support shown towards the Food Bank was excellent, reaffirming the belief that students embrace the community they live in and are willing to help those who are less fortunate.’
Rachel Morris, Head of Ethos, added: ‘At Lymm High school we are very proud of the generous nature of our students and strive to embrace this aspect of our ethos, making sure that we embed and promote the importance of being decent, socially responsible members of the community. As such, supporting the Trussell Trust is now going to become a regular installment in our academic year and, fingers-crossed, we will reach the goal of donating the equivalent weight of an elephant!’
