Leaver's Service at Liverpool Cathedral, by Miss Ellis
Date: 14th Jun 2016 @ 9:19am
Yesterday afternoon, all the children and staff from year 6 attended the Leaver's Service at Liverpool Cathedral. It was a very emotional start to our classes getting ready to begin their journeys towards high school (Miss Ellis certainly had a tear or two in her eye!) Euan and Rebecca (our head boy and girl) carried the school banner through the cathedral and presented it at the alter, Kenny hung our prayers for the future on the prayer tree and Tansy received a candle from the Bishop which we will now use as part of our leaver's service in school. During the service, the children received a blessing from the clergy and our children were lucky enough to be blessed by our own Miss Hope who is a lay reader. The children behaved superbly and were a real credit to the school and their parents. A lovely afternoon😃⛪️
Intra School Competitions, by Mr Ward
Date: 27th May 2016 @ 5:00pm
The last week of the school term normally means lots of intra school competition to give our children the opportunity to apply the skills they have learnt into really life situations. This week year 6 had a kiwi cricket and rounders tournament, year 5 boys had a rugby competition and year 2P and 3Q had a Benchball competition. Well done to all involved....

Thank you to everyone that came along today to share in our Buddy assembly. This is a very special scheme we run at Queen's Park. Our Y6 children are paired up with our Reception children for the full year. They do lots of different activities together to support our Reception children in their first year of 'big' school.
It is a big responsibility and one I know our year six children will live up to

Raising Aspirations at Queen's Park , by Mrs Kellett
Date: 5th Jul 2015 @ 10:06pm
This year, Y5 and Y6 at Queen's Park have been working with St Helens Chamber on a business enterprise scheme. The final session was held today. We had a 'Careers Carousel' in the hall. Over 15 different companys/jobs were represented from Nursing to Ice-Skating to Asda. The children prepared questions to ask the different companys. This gave our children a real flavour of the world of work and hopefully inspire some of them to look further into a particular career.
Another first for Queen's Park! One of our core values is aspiration and I really feel that this activity enable our children to at least start to think about work and how important it is to choose the right career.
Thank you to Natale from the St Helens Chamber who helped to organsie and Mrs Platt from school who is as ever, always on hand to help!

We held our first ever careers carousel here at Queen's Park on Friday afternoon and it was a great success!
Massive thanks should go to Natalie from St Helens Chamber who invited a wide variety of businesses to our event and to our Queen's Park parents and carers who volunteered their time to come and speak with our children.
The children were able to move around the carousel and ask questions about different careers and professions. There were a variety of industries and professionals who attended, e.g. ASDA, M&S, Silver Blades Ice Rink, DWP, QVC and Clarks to name but a few.
