Echo Schools Awards Winners

Cardinal Heenan has won one of the major prizes at the Liverpool Echo School Awards this afternoon.

We were named winners of the Healthy Living Award for our innovative Health programme, which is co-ordinated by Mr Townson.

While most of our boys enjoy playing sport - and collect armfuls of trophies while doing so - we know that some students don't enjoy physical activity which, along with poor diet choices, can affect their wellbeing.

This programme works with those students and their families, combining exercise, cookery workshops and advice on food and nutrition to help them to understand why and how to make the right choices.

As well as improving their health and giving them the tools to be Health, the students also benefit from raising their self-esteem and improving their body image.

We are proud of the commitment our students show on the programme, which involves giving up their Saturday mornings, and in maintaining their progress afterwards.

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


"Don't be afraid! I am here with good news for you, which will bring great joy to all the people."
