Steven Scoops Gold!

Last weekend Steven Jones represented Liverpool in the high jump at the English Schools Athletics Championships in Birmingham.

The Year 9 student jumped 1.84, 1.87 and 1.90m at Alexander Stadium, equalling then beating his personal best to win the title of National Junior High Jump Champion!

This is an unbelievable achievement shows true strength of character. We're so proud of him and his great efforts for the school and our city, congratulations Steven from all students and staff at Cardinal Heenan.

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. JOHNSTONE: What? What?

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."
