Fantastic trip to London for our Government and Politics students. They enjoyed a visit to the British Museum, a guided tour around Parliament before meeting St Helens North MP, Conor McGinn. To add the icing on the cake they obtained tickets to the public gallery in the House of Commons for part of the historic Brexit debate, hearing arguments from George Osbourne, Alex Salmond, Tim Farron and Yvette Cooper. Everyone had a great week! Read full story here: http://bit.ly/2kict3z #governmentandpolitics #carmelcollege #houseofcommons #brexit #debate #parliament

On Friday Chalon Court Hotel held The Catenians Public Speaking competition. The theme of the speech was JK Rowling’s quote: “It is our choices that show what we truly are, far more than our abilities.”
Five of our students took part in the competition and all students did exceptionally well. Congratulations to Sophia Smith who won and will be heading to the Regional Final in March!

Both Foundation Learning teams did themselves and us proud at the Greenbank tournament today. Team one was captained on the day by Adam Platt and Will Junaid lead team two.
Team 1 started with a respectable 3-3 draw with Dan Smith scoring a hat trick after some excellent build up play from Jason Liggett and Adam Platt.
They played exceptionally well throughout the whole game, winning 9-1 The team then scored 9 again in their third game winning 9-0 goals. In their final game they played the other Carmel team winning 5-1. Amazing effort and well done to all who played.

Team 2 played excellently as a team and never gave up, despite some very tough matches against some good opposition.
In game one they were unlucky to lose 4-3 to a late goal. Game 2 they came up against a team who were unbeaten all day in Greenbank Academy and gave an excellent show of themselves narrowly losing 3-1.
The final game was a tense encounter with both teams pushing hard to finish the day with a win, unfortunately luck wasn’t on team two’s side.

Overall, some brilliant performances from both teams with Daniel Smith winning Man of the Match for team 1 after finishing the day with 13 goals and the top goal scorer in the competition. Ryan Walsh won the award for team 2 after some much improved performances which included his first goal for the college, with both Daniel and Brandon Greaves running him close.

Last week 26 French students and 3 teachers arrived for the 26th annual exchange visit with our partner college in La Roche-sur-Yon, they soon settled into life at Carmel and with their English families. they spent Monday in lessons and the rest of the week went on excursions with their teachers including on a bike ride around Liverpool despite the cold weather! Many of the French and English students took part in an international laserquest challenge one evening which the French won and the students celebrated with a delicious Pizza Hut meal in Liverpool One, all 40 of them. Many other activities took place with individuals' partners or small groups and friendships were forged. We said goodbye to them at the weekend but look forward to our return visit in March when our students will practise their language skills and learn about the way of life in France. It was good to hear many positive comments not only from students but from parents, many of whom commented on the pleasant experience they had hosting the young people who all were a credit to their families and to their college.
