RAFT Foodbank Collection
Students at All Saints' Catholic High School have collected and created food hampers as part of their charity work this half term. The hampers have been donated to The RAFT foundation who operate the only Rossendale foodbank service. Pupil Chaplains have done a wonderful job collecting the food and creating the hampers. Many thanks to all students, parents and staff for the donations that have been received.
Year 9 Girls Netball
All Saints' Catholic High School Year 9 girls' played in the Rossendale Schools Netball Competition on Tuesday 10th October 2017 which took place at Bacup and Rawtenstall Grammar School. The girls played 5 games, drawing 3 matches against Haslingden B Team, BRGS B Team and Alder Grange and losing 2 games against BRGS A Team and Haslingden A Team.
The girl's are to be commended on digging deep throughout the competition and they never gave up despite 2 defeats. Olivia Bromley and Nell Edmondson showed fantastic team work in the semi-circle scoring 18 goals in total in the competition. Holly Pegg and Olivia Taylor were a tough defence duo to get past making it difficult for the other teams to score. Finally, Amelia Potts and Saskia Wilding demonstrated excellent passes and control down court to get the ball in our attacking third”. A superb performance all round.
European Day of Languages
At All Saints' Catholic High School there were a number of activities that children and staff took part in throughout the school.
Classes greeted each other in the language of many European countries including Latvia, Poland and Finland to name but a few!
During time in Forms children listened to and took part in modern pop songs in a range of languages including a French versions of Ed Sheeran and Adele songs.
Even the staff got involved with a week long competition running on the ‘Memrise’ website to learn as many Italian words as possible during the week!
MFL Teacher Mrs Nicole Whillace said that great fun was had by everyone involved across school and we look forward to celebrating the even again next year!
Year 10 Girls Netball
Year 7 Boys Football
After a shaky start the boys fought from two goals down to level the tie at 2-2 thanks to goals from Jake Cropper and Callum Thomas-Hardman before Westholme went back in front. A late charge with numerous goalmouth scrambles couldn't force the equaliser but it was an extremely positive start to the season. Final result was 2-3 to Westholme School but a superb display from both teams made for a very enjoyable match!
