On Tuesday 31st January 2017, Haydock High School celebrated Chinese New Year in the LRC, where a number of activities took place to celebrate this important event in Chinese culture. The animal representative of this Chinese calendar year is the Rooster. The event was organised by Mrs Bennett, our librarian, with the school LRC being decorated with Chinese Lanterns and Year 7 artwork; a display of Chinese history and traditions. Mrs Ashburner, Head of Art, made a Chinese Dragon and some of the students wore the Chinese Dragon costume and went around school playing instruments. The students enjoyed making origami, colouring dragons and finding out what animal they were; we also had word searches and a quiz.
Mrs Bennett said: “We always hold an annual event celebrating Chinese New Year in the LRC and this year was another success, enjoyed by all students. I would like to thank Mrs Dixon, Art Technician, who helped with decorating the room and supervision on the day and also Mrs Ashburner and the Art Department who supplied us with the Art work and also the Chinese Dragon.”
Everyone at Haydock High School would like to thank Mrs Bennett for her hard work in organising this event, all staff and students who helped towards its success and the students who attended and learned more about Chinese culture and history.
At Haydock High School our mission is to care for and support
each student so that they fulfil their potential, make outstanding progress and become successful learners, confident individuals and responsible citizens. We will be relentless in developing our skills, and work with our parents, Governors and wider partners to ensure that every student is known, contributes to our community and is
fulfilled in achieving their ambitions.
The pace of curriculum change continues to accelerate, for example introducing a more flexible Key Stage 3. Our constant planning offers confidence for successful delivery and assessment of these areas.
Over the last few years we have been successful in achieving Sportsmark, Investors in People, Artsmark, Careers and Guidance and Healthy Schools accreditation. We were also awarded the accolade of a ‘Get Set’ school in the run-up to the 2012 London Olympics.
We take great pride in serving the needs of our students and are dedicated to each and every one of them making outstanding progress in their time at our school. To this end, we undertake a significant commitment and interest in them as individuals so that we can most effectively meet their specific needs. This care for their achievement means we have the very highest expectations of their attendance, respect for the school and our ethos, behaviour, happiness, fulfilment and academic progress.
