Prayer for the Week

Emmanuel, when you lived in Israel of old, some accepted you, but some did not. Some listened to your words only to look for the loophole. Some of us still do that, even when we claim to be your disciples. Lord, help us to stand in awe before your holy word and humble ourselves to accept what we cannot understand. Help us to find real freedom in you. Amen


Headteachers Comments
Town Champions
Well done to the Y8 Sportshall Athletics team who won the Town Championship last week.

Musical Notes
Congratulations to Olivia Bennison and Christine Uchendu who both achieved Distinctions in their Grade 1 Music Theory exams.

Trips and Visits

Well done to those who attended the Y10 and 11 Retreat at the Youth Village at the weekend and to those who visited Cologne. Good luck to those who are visiting the Clothes Show next week.

Parents Evenings
Thank you to Y9 students who attended the Parents Evening with their parents last week and to the Prefects who marshalled the event so superbly. On Thursday, we have the Y12 Parents Evening.

Hartlepool Boroough Council

Last week we had a visit from the Chief Executive of the Council, Dave Stubbs, who was particularly struck by the courtesy and respect shown by our students. On Friday morning we will be visited by Gill Alexander who is responsible for all schools in Hartlepool. She will be touring classrooms and I am confident that she will be given a similar English Martyrs welcome.

Suzie Clarke
I know that many students will remember Suzie, our Lunchtime Supervisor. In July she had an horrendous accident from which she is making a very slow recovery. I am delighted to say that she took her first steps this week during a course of physiotherapy. Anybody wishing to send Suzie a card or message can do so by calling to the school office where a box will be available.

Bl John Ingram
Well done to all involved in the Bl John Ingram Mass last Friday.

Former Student
Group Captain Richard Maddison OBE, 43, was appointed as an Aide de Camp to the Queen, shortly after taking post as Station Commander and head of the RAFs Chinook Force at RAF Odiham in Hamps hire. On a personal level, I know that I would not have had the career I have had without the support of my family, of English Martyrs School and particular of the Air Training Corps in Hartlepool, through which I was fortunate enough to be awarded a flying scholarship, which taught me to fly while a cadet.

Jokes and Riddles

Q: What is the difference between an Oak tree and a tight shoe? A: One makes acorns and the other makes corns ache. Q: What is in the middle of nowhere? (Students are welcome to let me know if they have the solution to this riddle.) What kind of tree could a Maths teacher climb? = Geometry
