The author Jackie Burke visited St. Michael's on Monday, November 21st. Many of you might be very familiar with Jackie's very successful series of books Grindlewood. The boys in Third and Fourth Form were delighted to be able to hear the author read passages from her novels and to also be able to ask questions about the writing process and what it is like to be a writer. Thank you very much Jackie for coming to see us!

What a great start to Science Week! Mr. Loughrey taught the boys about the importance of science and engineering in our everyday lives. The boys got to share some interesting information about their favourite engineers and even participated in a competition to build the tallest structure (using newspaper and sellotape)! Thanks again to Mr. Loughrey for this wonderful talk!
