Sportsman's Night a Success

Over 160 people packed the school hall last Friday for the first PTA organised sportsmans dinner of the new academic year.

Despite a late withdrawal of Kevin Sheedy, (who had an Everton coaching commitment clash), a great night was had by all.

Late substitute David Johnson, who played for both Liverpool and Everton FCs in the 1970s and 80s, brought along his collection of 18 medals won during his career and held a lively Q&A session.

Former Liverpool FC player, coach and manager, Roy Evans (pictured right at the school) also treated the crowd to an insight into his time at the club and local comedian, Hal Nolan, rounded the night off with a flurry of jokes.

As usual the sportsmans event got the 2013/14 fundraising efforts off to a flying start.

The details of next sportsmans night will be announced in the new year but in the meantime the next social event is on Saturday 23 November, see www.cardinalheenanpta.org.uk to find out more.

Bible Quote

“Praise the Lord because he is good.  His faithful love will last forever.”
Psalm 136:1

Word of the Week

Machiavellian (adjective)

Subject which uses this term: English Literature; Drama; History; Politics

Meaning: cunning, scheming, and unscrupulous.

For example: ‘Mrs Lyons is Machiavellian. She manipulates Mrs Johnstone into giving up her baby. She uses Mrs Johnstone’s superstitious nature to ensure she gets what she wants.’

MRS. LYONS: You do know what they say about twins, secretly parted, don’t you?


MRS. LYONS: They say…they say that if either twin learns that he once was a pair, that they shall both immediately die. It means, Mrs. Johnstone, that these brothers shall grow up, unaware of the other’s existence. They shall be raised apart and never, ever told what was once the truth. You won’t tell anyone about this, Mrs. Johnstone, because if you do, you will kill them."

Thought for the Week
