Thank youChildwall Abbey School would like to say a massive “thank-you” to our friends and family for your fantastic support for the Macmillan Coffee Morning, held on 28thSeptember, organised by our Sixth-form.

Many people kindly donated delicious cakes and other tasty treats for sale. Pupils enjoyed their own cake sale on Thursday morning. On Friday, we had a very busy and fun opportunity for parents, carers and friends to get together, have a cuppa and fundraise for this very special good cause.The event raised an amazing £470. Thank-you so much.

Dragons Den Champions 2018

Congratulations to Year 10 pupils, Lucy, Aimee and Louise who entered the “Dragons Den” Maths competition and won first prize! Last year our Year 10 pupil’s came first in the special school category; however, this year we were the only special school to enter the competition. Therefore, Mr Watkins entered the girls as a mainstream school against 30 other schools across the city.

After designing a fantastic Maths invention and producing an outstanding pitch to the Dragons, they were voted overall winners for Liverpool by unanimous decision. Lucy, Aimee and Louise were presented with a £1,000 cheque, which will be put together with last year’s prize of £500 to purchase Maths resources with a focus on “Enjoyment in Maths”. Our champions will attend a school council meeting with Mrs Piercy and discuss the best way of spending the prize money to improve Maths at C.A.S.

May Half-Term

May Half Term

Just a quick note to wish all our C.A.S. community a very happy half-term break, which begins on 25/5/18. When we come back to school, we will be heading towards the summer holidays and preparing for lots of school trips, the Duke of Edinburgh awards night, summer parents evening and our fun C.A.S. Sports Day. Please remember to check the website for updates on dates and times.

Could parents and carers please remember to make sure their child is suitably dressed for hot weather, that sun cream has been applied if needed and that they have a bottle of water (not juice or fizzy drinks) if they would like one? Drinking water is always available in all classrooms.

Here’s hoping the sun shines on us all week. Looking forward to seeing everyone on 4/6/18.

Artsmark ‘Gold’ Award for C.A.S!

Artsmark Gold LogoWe are very proud to announce that Childwall Abbey School has achieved the Artsmark Gold Award. This recognises the value we place on giving our school community opportunities to access and enjoy as many cultural experiences as possible. These include many visits outside school, to museums, art galleries and concert halls, as well as enabling our pupils to develop their own performance skills, interests and appreciation of the value of art in all its forms in our society through our curriculum.

Liverpool is a culturally rich city and we are proud to live and learn in such a vibrant place.

Many thanks go to all pupils and staff who were involved in preparing our successful bid, which was led by Mrs Hunt. Well Done everyone!
