School Events 2019-20
Pop Lacrosse Stockport Finals
Mellor Primary entered two teams in the Pop Lacrose Stockport final at the end of February. Well done to both teams and huge congratulations to ‘The Tigers’ who brought the Trophy back home for us. Looking forward to L3 next round!
Schools Cross Country League
It’s fantastic to see that Mellor children are competing in the Saturday Stockport Cross Country League, held at Woodbank Park. Thank you to Miss Tweedie and well done to all the families that are involved.
Brilliant Displays in our Junior Classrooms
Wonderful inspiration as a reading corner in Year 5 – The brilliant Miss Tweedie & Mrs Bergin creating a special area with the children…linked to work by Rousseau and The Jungle Book production.
Fantastic work in Miss Lockwood’s classroom to engage the children in this year’s Shakespeare festival – Romeo & Juliet. Looking forward to seeing a unique piece of work once again.
Stunning artwork from our Year 6 on the theme of ‘being human’. The children chose how they wanted to portray their concept.
Greater Manchester Cross Country Championships
Well done to our brilliant cross country runners flying the flag for Stockport schools today, Year 5/6 girls got team gold, boys got team silver.
Choir Singing @ Young Voices
Our choir have been performing at Young Voices for the past 12 years & still going strong…thank you to everyone who supported the event.
Mellor Country Home Christmas Appeal
Thank you to all the Mellor parents and carers who kindly donated presents to the Mellor Country Home. Members of our charities committee took an amazing 70 presents to the Country Home on the last week of term. Mellor Country Home provides low-cost holidays for people who are disadvantaged both socially and financially. These presents were very gratefully received by Sharon, and will be given to children over the course of next year as they arrive at the House. Many thanks again.
Mellor School Choir
Mellor Primary School sang at a chilly Marple train station again, to bring a bit of Christmas cheer to commuters and raise a little bit of money for St Ann’s Hospice. Thanks to all our children, staff & parents who took part, we raised £137.75.
Year 4 & 5 Swimming Gala
A swimming gala was a great way to end the sporting success for this year. The 8 swimmers from Year 4 and Year 5 swam brilliantly, with the girls team finishing 8th and the boys team finishing 1st. Well done to all swimmers!
Once again, our Year 6 children led the school in our Remembrance Day service. The children created the special school assembly and shared their thoughts with everyone. Thanks also to the children who represented our school in laying a wreath at Mellor Cenotaph. Each year, our representation grows at this Sunday service held at the memorial.
As the lead school developing the first Youth Climate summit for Stockport, we were amazed at the technical knowledge and passion displayed by the children of 20 schools that took part. A team of our Year 5 children represented Mellor and gave a fantastic presentation in front of a large audience. The event held in the Rutherford lecture theatre gave the children a fantastic platform to express their views but also influence councillors and MP candidates. We were also able to build a link for the future with Manchester University which has great potential. The event was opened by Professor Sarah Bridle (an expert on the history of the universe) and supported by Friends of the Earth and GGDot working on greenhouse emissions linked to food production.
Beautiful Manchester Bee art work as stain glass windows done by our year 6 children.
