Lower School Fundraising

The Lower Site Chaplaincy Team organised a Spring Fayre to raise money for The Good Shepherd and East Africa Appeals. In just one lunchtime they raised £115. Thank you to all the students who supported this amazing fundraising effort.

Geography Department Italy Field Trip

Over the February half term, 42 gallant Geographers travelled to Italy as part of the Geography Department's annual international residential to Italy.

Volcanic highlights included scaling the summit of Mount Vesuvius and exploring the ancient ruins of Pompeii and Herculaneum- Roman towns destroyed by the 79AD eruption.

We explored the carved coastline of Capri and enjoyed the stunning views at the Arco Naturalè. We spent our final day following in the footsteps of the famous Gladiators at the Coliseum in Rome.

Our year 11 Geographers were a credit to themselves and to McAuley and proved that with Geography you really can go places!

First World War and Poetry Enrichment Day - Year 8

Doncaster 1914–18 recently visited Year 8 students to deliver interactive workshops on the First World War and poetry. Doncaster 1914 -18 encourages the people of Doncaster to uncover and share their own First World War stories.

This session explored what life in the trenches was like for the men of Doncaster. Students were encouraged to create their own 'trench' using replica First World War items and copies of objects and material from Doncaster Museum & Archives. They created a trench based on the life of a particular soldier from Doncaster. They also had the chance to get hands-on with real First World War objects and get dressed up in First World War costume and uniforms.

Students also worked with BA (Hons) English students from University Centre Doncaster to design a war poetry lesson. Students were guided through a critical reading of a poem and encouraged them to create their own.

Incredible feedback from students - many thanks to everyone involved!

iSing! 2017

24 year 7 and 8 students took part in the Doncaster music Hub celebration at The Dome. They joined students from other schools in the area to form a 150+ member choir. They had been learning the songs that would be featured in the concert since Christmas, and all attended weekly junior vocal group rehearsals. All managed to learn all of the words without needing music in front of them which was a fantastic achievement. The evening was an incredible event and the students represented the school fantastically.


Doncaster Youth Council Elections, Feb 2017 - New McAuley Candidates

After a respectable turnout in voting at both upper and lower school, all 8 candidates received a respectable number of votes. However, the two candidates with the most votes were Connor Burleigh, 10K and Holly Nyika, 7J. These two pupils will now represent The McAuley school on the Doncaster Youth Council.
Congratulations to both winning candidates, but also to all of the other candidates for taking part in such a professional manner.
Massive thanks to everyone who took part in supervising the polling stations at lunchtimes and to those who voted and made the election a meaningful process.
