The pupils at The Fallibroome Academy have observed foliage and created stencils from recycled materials. These have been combined with handcrafted tiles that are embossed with plant materials gathered from the local environment and incorporated into a beautiful banner.
The pieces of art are displayed on the columns at Macclesfield Town Hall with Fallibroome’s contribution placed first on the left with accompanying pieces (from left to right) by Macclesfield Academy, Tytherington School and All Hallows.
Well done to all the young artists of Macclesfield that have contributed to this fantastic display.
Fallibroome Academy Year 7 Maths student Nathan Herbert receives The Ian Porteous Award by winning First Prize in the MEM Open Challenge 2017.
MEM (Mathematical Education in Merseyside) has been running Challenge competitions in February half term since the late 1970s. The Challenge is aimed at students in Years 7 and 8, and the competition itself attracts about 1,000 entries annually. Students complete the competition during February Half Term. Nathan Herbert from The Fallibroome Academy won this year’s challenge and received his award at Liverpool University on Wednesday 10th May.
Fallibroome Academy has been announced as the winner of The Arts Council England Award for Innovation & Leadership in Cultural Education. The award highlights Fallibroome’s work as the best amongst the rich cultural education landscape in the North West.
Following the dreadful events last night, Fallibroome has been quiet and subdued today. Thankfully, we don’t believe that there have been any fatalities in our community.
We have asked our students to go through the school day as normally as possible in the coming days. In our experience, it can help to keep the normal routines in place following a traumatic incident. We will, of course, be mindful of the students who are struggling to cope and are ready to provide additional support in these circumstances.
I have been asked by a number of families who had children at the MEN last night to try to minimise rumours and online discussion of these events. I am sure that you will want to support these messages at home with your children. We will try to help individuals to come to terms with what has happened by encouraging them to talk to those who are very close to them and by accessing professional support as appropriate.
Our thoughts and prayers go out to all the families who have been affected by these events. It is hard to imagine how they will cope with the grief of losing a loved one in these circumstances.
