Cultural Enrichment at Mossley Hollins At Mossley Hollins, we believe that part of the education of our young people is to allow them to experience as broad and as rich a curriculum as possible. As a school, we try hard to provide opportunities for our students beyond the classroom and I am delighted that so many of them take advantage of this throughout the year. This week has been particularly busy for our students and staff in this regard. On Tuesday, over fifty of our Year 7 students visited the Bridgewater Hall in Manchester with Mrs Allwood and Mr Beardmore where they heard first-hand the world famous Halle Orchestra as they performed a special concert for school children. The students, many whom had never heard or seen a live symphony orchestra, joined in enthusiastically and thoroughly enjoyed the experience. On Wednesday evening, Miss Ryan, Miss Adams and Miss Hodgkins who took a group of Year 9 students to a performance of Wuthering Heights at The Royal Exchange Theatre. The students were immaculately behaved and represented themselves and our school beautifully, especially when looking after the teachers who were sobbing following a dramatic version of the novel! On Thursday evening, Miss Sharpe staged a magnificent Dance Show where over 50 of our young dancers performed. The quality and variety of dance on show was incredible and a credit to the students and to Miss Sharpe’s enthusiastic leadership of dance across all five school years. We will continue to do all we can to provide such rich cultural experiences alongside our broad and ambitious curriculum in the classroom and I would like to thank the staff for providing such wonderful opportunities for the students.
Have a great weekend
