Part of ensuring our Bosco girls become international citizens of the world means maintaining strong international relationships and we are fortunate to be partnered with Wenzhou Foreign Language School No.2 in China. We have forged close links with our sister school over the years, hosting contingents here in Liverpool, and taking groups of our girls over to China to have an unforgettable experience of a unique and different culture.
An intrepid team of our year 8 and 9 legal eagles became Bosco’s first entry into the Young Citizens’ Mock Trial competition. The girls travelled to Wirral Magistrates Court to compete against other schools in a high-stakes courtroom drama, performing as lawyers, advisors, witnesses, ushers and even magistrates. The team acquitted themselves fantastically, and did our school proud, battling the first-time nerves to secure victory both in prosecution and defence. The experience allowed the girls to gain a real insight into the British Justice system, and became an inspiration for possible career avenues in the future.
In December our Sixth form students worked with Mrs Hughes raising funds for the annual pensioners’ party.
The fund raising events included Dodge ball, name the teddy, raffles and collections from pupils at registration. All the funds raised went towards providing Christmas lunch and refreshments to local people.
The party was attended by local pensioners who were wined and dined and treated to fantastic entertainment including Bingo, Raffles and songs from our talented 6th formers.
This year was our most well attended party yet and fun was had by all, including the pupils who helped to create a merry ambiance. It is very important for us to welcome people from our local community to be part of our festivities at St John Bosco.
