Congratulations to the following students on their footballing successes. Finley Lynch currently plays for Preston North End whilst Sonny Graham and Joel Davidson signed forms last weekend for Bolton Wanderers and Everton respectively. MCHS would like to wish them good luck in their attempts to reach football stardom.
We were delighted to be able to welcome Jamie Peacock into school again on October 12th to give his ‘No White Flag’ presentation to our Year 11 students. Jamie captained the England Rugby League team for 10 years and enjoyed a career playing in the top flight of Rugby League for 20 years. Jamie talked through the five key things that he believes has made him the success that is today and every single one of them is something that our young people can apply to their lives immediately. Jamie talked about the importance of setting goals, allowing only positive people to influence you, believing in yourself, going the extra mile and being the best you can be. A truly inspirational morning from a real life legend.
The annual Sports Presentation evening was held in the studio in late September. Special guests for the evening were Jim Bentley and Ken McKenna from Morecambe FC. 75 students were rewarded for their efforts and achievements over the 2015-16 season across a whole range of sports. More details will follow in the PE section of extra-curricular activities on the website.
Lewis and Joel have been selected to represent Lancashire Schools Football this season. They were successful after three rounds of trials, attended by over 100 year 9 students from across the county. Both are now looking forward to being involved in the various competitions against other counties in the North of England. Good luck lads.
