National Crimebeat Awards Win

Such a surreal day.

In March UrbanScape became an award-winning community garden, winning first place at the National Crimebeat Awards. I have worked on the project since establishing Mulgrave Street Action Group CIC August 2021. Still, I was dumbfounded to win not just the 1st place at the awards on behalf of UrbanScape, but also take home the award for the best presentation! I was ready to go home with nothing as being a finalist in an honour enough.

I have taken this back home from London on behalf of not just myself but all of MSAG’s volunteers, the Liverpool 8 community, and all our supporters.

Much appreciation to the High Sherrif of Merseyside and Sergent Moorecroft of the local policing department for their support of the project generally and getting my NCb application in. Liverpool College is also due thanks for being so supportive of my Social Entrepreneurship ever since I began.

Virtual Reality Science Day

Chapter 4, Chapter 5 and Chapter 8 pupils had an out of this world Science experience this week! Through the wonders of Virtual Reality Technology and CGI, pupils used VR headsets to become astronauts, exploring our solar system in wondrous detail. The whole class simultaneously blasted off into space, to pilot their own vessel to learn about planets, moons, stars and satellites.  This incredible immersive experience truly boosted learning and fact retention. Our thanks to Mrs Doran for organising the event and the Wilton Trust for supporting their adventure.


Scientists for the Day

Following the superb Role Model Day, Chapter 5 students were given a taste of what being a real Scientist entailed. Dr Muhammad Awais kindly brought into the school a full class set of white lab coats for the students to try on for the day. He also kindly brought in origami paper and instructions for children to make paper lab coats, practicing the importance of following instructions with precision - -a skill vital for all real scientists. The children thoroughly enjoyed this unique experience. Our sincere thanks to Mr Awais for his generosity.

Chapter 5 Role Model Day

What do you get when you cross a biomedical scientist, a Doctor, a technology developer, an auditor and a global event manager? The answer – inspirational and fascinating ‘Role Model day!’

Chapter 5 students were delighted to welcome a wide variety of role models from the world of work into school on Friday. These fabulous role models spoke to the children about their experiences in each career and shared advice about the subjects and skills they would need to develop for anyone wishing to follow in their footsteps.

Among the speaker was Ms Sholicar, a technology developer who was instrumental in rolling out 40,000 ipads in the banking industry. Mrs Mannion spoke about her role in accountancy and auditing, sharing some of the incredible companies she worked with – including Chester Zoo! Dr She also shared her experiences of apprenticeships. Dr Brophy gave a fascinating, jaw-dropping talk about her role as a neonatologist, taking care of new born babies in Liverpool Women’s hospital. Mrs Gray spoke about she travelled the world as an events manager, setting up conferences, concerts, festivals, fashion shows, Olympic events and exhibitions. Finally, Dr Awais spoke about his role as an academic -working on the pursuit of knowledge and on new scientific discoveries. Dr Awais spoke about his role in the Department of Molecular and Clinical Cancer Medicine as he travels the world presenting the technology he invented, to visualize interaction between proteins in live cells.

The children gained a great from the experience. Our thanks to Mrs Doran for organising the event, to all the volunteers gave up their time to make it so enriching for the students, and not forgetting the fabulous Chapter 5 students who managed to convinced their family members to attend.

If you would like to take part in a Prep School Role model day, the next one will be for Ch3 students on Friday 15th March. If interested, please email Mrs Doran for more details, This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.


Forensic Science Day (Ch5-Ch8)

In preparation for Science week, pupils ranging from Ch5 to Ch8 had the opportunity to take part in a superb Forensic Science challenge day. Pupils were taught about finger print identification, footprint impression analysis and DNA technology, as well as learning about the careful collection and analysis of other forms of evidence, including fibres and hair.

The pupils were presented with a crime science (where an unknown individual had broken into a school safe). The children were then tasked to work collaboratively to investigate to try to crack the case. Finally, they had to present their conclusions, backed up with evidence, in a court of Law, presided over by a judge. It was a superb event, linking beautiful to an understanding of careers in STEM, the police and Forensic Science. Our thanks to Mrs Doran for organising the event, and to the Wilton Trust.
