Eco success and Year 9 Football

On Tuesday this week Miss Sargent and Mrs Hornsby accompanied six of our leading eco-tech students to the annual Stockport Council climate change debate, where councillors debate five ideas for environmental projects chosen from over 170 sent in from schools across the borough. For the second year running MHS was one of the five schools chosen to represent their idea, and this year the team did even better than last time and won the debate. With a bit of luck the plan to create more community gardens across Stockport will be voted into policy and actually happen – very exciting! Well done to everyone involved, and especially to Freddie Gee, Sophie Higgins, Annalise Mill, Lucy Bradbury, Lillia Walker and Bethany Rourke for arguing their case so successfully. It goes to show what can be achieved with a bit of spark and determination.

Also on Tuesday, a little bit later on, the Year 9 boys football team took on Stockport School in the semi-finals of the Stockport School’s Cup. I was lucky enough to escape from a meeting just in time to watch the final few minutes, where the MHS team put the game to bed with a last kick goal to make it 3-1. The team had gone behind to a very talented opposition and so it was great to see their teamwork in action as they turned the game around. I was also really heartened to see the excellent sportsmanship on show, especially after the final whistle. The final takes place next Tuesday against Bramhall, and I wish the team and the staff who support them the very best of luck.

Have a great weekend,

Joe Barker
