MORGAN CALDWELL’S FUNDRAISING SUCCESS Cansfield student Morgan Caldwell was nominated Secondary School Pupil of the Year for the North West. This award was part of the The Wigan Observer, Wigan Evening Post and Leigh Reporter Education Awards 2015. Readers of these local papers were actively involved by nominating worthy candidates. All finalists were invited to a prestigious Presentation Evening, which took place at Wigan and Leigh College. Morgan received a Highly Commended certificate for her achievement in fundraising. Morgan spent over a year fundraising for the Roy Castle Lung Cancer Foundation, and here is what Morgan had to say: “In August, I completed, along with others from Cansfield, a ten mile walk for the Roy Castle Lung Cancer Foundation. We walked from Ashton Leisure Centre to Wigan town centre and back, and raised £500 through sponsors. Over the last year, I have raised over £1000 with the help of friends (Millie Pancholi, Anna Corkill, Jade Bushell, Cerys Winstanley, Jessica Johnson, Leah Roberts, Emily Grundy, Chloe Peel, Sian Wilkins, Lewis Taylor, Brad Wilson, Liam Higgens, Oliver Dolan and Matthew Sergison) and teachers. Everybody has been amazing and I would like to say “thank you” for your hard work and support.” LAKELAND MOTOR MUSEUM On 22nd October, Y11 students on the Motor Vehicle Technology course visited the Lakeland Motor Museum, in Ulverston. They were making comparisons between the design and construction of motor vehicles, through various stages of development, and the changes in design through the various eras. NEWSLETTER DEVELOPING POTENTIAL • CELEBRATING SUCCESS WINTER 2015 GERMANY 2015 We set off late at night on Friday, 10th July, and reached the Eurotunnel in the early morning. We managed to board an earlier train than was planned and, whilst we had been panicking about recent trouble in Calais and Operation Stack up on the M20, everything went wonderfully to plan! We arrived in Köln at around 11:00 a.m., having stopped off in Belgium for a bit of breakfast and a quick freshen up. We made our way into the city centre via the Deutz “Padlock” bridge. Once in the centre, Mr Robinson raced up the cathedral with a group of equally enthusiastic students; others had a more leisurely stroll around the city centre.We then continued south to the hostel. The hostel itself was a little way out of Köln, down in the peaceful spa town of Bad Salzig (Salty Bath). The family who ran it were incredibly welcoming and the food was fantastic.The disco on the Saturday night was … different, shall we say! It became a kind of talent contest with certain students - who shall remain nameless! Sunday was Phantasialand. A little bit of rain couldn’t dampen our spirits and a fabulous time was had by all. Indeed the weather was miraculously good throughout the trip, considering downpours had been predicted for the entire duration of our stay. We then did a little bit of sight-seeing in Bonn, where we tried spaghetti ice-cream. Yum! On Monday morning, we set off up the Rhein from the picturesque town of Boppard where, after exploring the centre and greedily consuming numerous Currywurst, we boarded our boat and enjoyed the sail up the river to Koblenz, in the shadow of the Rhein’s fairytale castles. In Koblenz, we also had time to take the cable cars across the river to the old fortress. It was wonderful way to draw a close to such a successful trip. We are already looking forward to the trip next year!

HEALTHY RELATIONSHIPS EVENT As part of the Cansfield PALS training programme, twenty-eight students participated in the Healthy Relationship Event, which was held at Wigan Youth Zone. TRIP TO QUARRY BANK MILL As part of a study into the impact of the Industrial Revolution, 40 Year 8 pupils, accompanied by Mr Forshaw and Mr McGrath, visited the working cotton mill at Styal in Cheshire. The event was part of the Wigan Safeguarding Children Board’s new campaign around tackling Child Sexual Exploitation (CSE) - to prevent it from happening and to protect young people in Wigan; it also highlighted teenage relationship abuse. Key agencies in Wigan came together to organise this specialist event to raise awareness in young people. The experience started with a tour of Styal village, and then on to the Apprentice House where we were met by the formidable Mr Shawcross (in reality an actor by the name of Malcolm) who gave the pupils rigorous schooling in letters and writing on slates in the stone-flagged schoolroom. The event gave Cansfield students an insight into the consequences of an abusive and controlling relationship, and a greater understanding of what some people go through. They found the workshops were interesting and informative, but emotional as well. The “apprentices” were then shown the sleeping quarters.There were looks of dismay, especially from the girls, when they realised that their beds were filled with straw and that they were expected to shake the lice out of their blankets in the morning. YOUTH CABINET NETWORKING MEETING In September, a group of School Council representatives were taken to the YMCA, in Ashton. They had been invited to attend a Youth Cabinet Networking meeting, to represent young people of Ashton and meet with senior leaders who sit on the Children’s Trust and the Wigan Safeguarding Children’s Board. Moving on from the sleeping arrangements, we were shown the excellent medical facilities provided by Mr Gregg’s enlightened regime at his mill. The children thrilled to brimstone and treacle, “vomit tea” and, of course, leeches. After packed lunches in the museum school rooms, we moved on to a tour of the workings of the mill itself. Skilled operators explained how the process took raw cotton, spun it into yarn, then thread, and eventually wove this into cotton cloth. There was a chance to look at the machinery driving the mill.We even managed to see the steam engine that was used as a back-up source of power should the water wheel be halted for maintenance. The trip was a resounding success and gave all the Cansfield pupils a genuine taste of what life would have been like for apprentices in a Victorian cotton mill. The Head Boy’s Experience As part of Wigan Council’s ‘Deal in Action’ programme, the other senior Student Voice leaders and I were invited to attend a meeting with many members of the Council, to represent the views of all of the young people in Ashton. From that meeting, it was clear that the voice of the youth is a major aim that the Council currently has. Personally, I learnt about various Council resources, such as the ‘Linc2’ website and the ‘My Wigan Report It’ app.Also, since the meeting, I have joined Wigan Youth Cabinet, where I continue to represent the views of young people, as well as working to support Wigan’s Members of the Youth Parliament. By Matthew Sergison The Head Girl’s Experience Two representatives from years 9,10 and 11 went to meet with the Youth Parliament and also members of Wigan Council. We discussed our community and how it could be improved; ideas included various social media advertisements and posters up in schools. Also suggested was that the types of services, provided by the Youth Parliament, were publicised more. The visit provided us with a different outlook on our society and made us think of how it could be improved. It was a good experience and lovely to be invited along to the meeting. By Anna Corkill 2 • CANSFIELD YEAR 9 WIGAN SCHOOLS RUGBY LEAGUE CUP FINAL 2015-16 Robin Park 20th October 2015 was the year when our Y9 students progressed to their first ever Cup Final. Through hard work and determination they had confidently beaten all opponents on the way to the last stage where they met a strong and confident team from St Mary’s. After a solid start to the game, St Mary’s were briefly in the lead with the score at half-time - Cansfield 10 v 12 St Mary’s. However, this only inspired our boys; they went back onto the field with new found confidence and belief, scoring an unbelievable 24 unanswered points. As the final whistle blew, it all suddenly became real; the hard work on cold, icy, rainy and windy evenings, since year 7, had paid off.The next mission is already in mind, as they tackle the North West Counties Shield competition in 2016. Well done boys. CANSFIELD • 3

WIGAN SCIENCE & TECHNOLOGY CHALLENGE DAY On 30th June, twelve students from Cansfield attended the Wigan Science & Technology Challenge Day at St John Rigby Sixth Form College. The students were randomly put into working groups of four, two from each school, to participate in three out of a possible four challenges over the course of the day. All of the challenges involved teamwork, cooperation and communication, all of which are the high level skills that STEM activities are designed for. The students thoroughly enjoyed participating and rose to the challenge. When we first signed up to be PALS, we were confident that we would give everything we could to mentor the new Year 7 students, in order to help them settle into Cansfield life. Before half-term we went into Y7 forms, every Monday, to help out with their organisation and to become a familiar, friendly face. PALS After half-term we met with our own STARs; we loved meeting new people who we could hopefully help throughout the year with any problems they might be facing, or worries they might have about high school. We felt that we connected with our STARs well and found out lots about their first few weeks at Cansfield. We can’t wait for our future meetings every Monday! By Eve Wagstaff and Molly Talbot CAKES FOR CHARITY Lydia Conboy On Saturday, 3rd October, Year 8 student Lydia Conboy helped to organise a coffee morning for Macmillan. As a junior member of a ladies’ singing group called ‘Milltown Sound Chorus’, Lydia is frequently involved with fundraising and community events. Along with other chorus members, Lydia baked a variety of tasty treats including her famous creations; burgers, fries, popcorn and coca cola cakes. A fantastic £360.20 was raised on the day.Well done Lydia! THE CANSFIELD CAREERS AND COLLEGE FAIR In November, Cansfield invited Y11 students and their parents to attend a Careers and College Fair. Representatives and training providers were available to discuss the options and pathways available to students and offer advice and guidance. Alexia Willons & Chloe Rothwell Year 10 students Alexia Willons and Chloe Rothwell held a cake sale to raise funds for the RSPCA. Cansfield staff and students baked cakes for the girls to sell at break time. Alexia and Chloe visited the RSPCA shop in Wigan to present a cheque for £78.00. Well done girls! CANSFIELD REMEMBERS On Wednesday, 11th November, Cansfield students attended a special assembly to remember all those who lost their lives in past and present conflicts. Many of our students wore their uniforms and are pictured with our guests. 4 • CANSFIELD VIVO Vivo is now bigger and better than ever! Students are accessing their personalised Vivo account more than ever before, and really enjoying the benefits of being rewarded for their progress, behaviour and attainment. As the picture shows, the new and improved Vivo Shop is very busy at the moment with a whole range of exciting Vivo products. Some students do decide to save up their Vivo points and buy something a little more expensive, while others are weekly visitors to the shop! Cansfield now has a new and fantastic Vivo display board. It is located by the PE corridor and will be updated weekly to show Vivo league tables, current Vivo news, and many other exciting Vivo events. Finally, this term there has been an increase in students being rewarded for their assessment results and essentials marks; large numbers of Vivo points have been awarded in recognition of the brilliant student achievements across a whole range of subjects. We are very proud of all the students who received Vivo points. Happy Vivo! CANSFIELD • 5

DUKE OF EDINBURGH BRONZE PRACTICE AND ASSESSED EXPEDITION WEEKENDS For their Duke of Edinburgh practice expedition, Year 10 students took part in a 25km walk from Garswood to Upholland, over two days, to practise their navigation skills. It was essential that all participants were self-sufficient for the expedition and caried everything needed, including cookers, waterproofs, food and tents, in their rucksacks for the weekend. The group learnt a range of skills including rucksack packing, tent construction, menu planning, trangia cooking, using compasses, map reading and route planning. On the following weekend, Cansfield students took part in their Duke of Edinburgh Bronze assessed expedition at Rivington; they did exceptionally well and all students passed with flying colours! SPLATTER OR DRIPS! Year 10 GCSE students have been looking at the work of abstract expressionist Jackson Pollock as part of their coursework. Pollock had a distinctive style of painting that involved “splatter” or “drips”. His unique work sells for millions of pounds andY10 students are hoping that one day, their masterpieces will sell for the same!! Also included in the photographs are the pupils’ assessments based on the theme of chaos! STUDENT VOICE Last year, Cansfield remodelled the Student Voice to make it bigger and better than ever. Each form elected a representative in charge of ensuring that their ideas and opinions were discussed during meetings. Each term, leaders and representatives discussed topics such as the classroom environment, recycling, energy and rewards. The topic of the school environment provoked lots of positive discussion and, as a result, new shelters, seating areas and bike sheds were introduced around school. Representatives from the Student Voice discussed at length school rewards and what they would like to see introduced to recognise and reward student progress. As part of the feedback, students felt happy with the Vivo system of rewards but mentioned two key issues; parent and guardian involvement with Vivo and also recognition based on their positive progress in learning. Consequently, from September, Vivo has been remodelled as a response to the Student Voice. Those students who are on or above target in each assessment will now receive a set number of Vivo points. Also, all parents have now received their own Vivo log-in details in order to monitor their child. 6 • CANSFIELD CANSFIELD • 7
