Headteacher for a Day!

Shaun Winship, Year 7, Took Charge of the School for the Day

Cardinal Heenan Catholic High School saw a change of leader for the day as Shaun Winship won the raffle to he Headteacher for the day.  Shaun also had a deputy working alongside him - James Murphy from year 10.  Their day consisted in dealing with a range of issues including financial, premises, pastoral and curriculum meetings.  Furthermore, towards the end of the day there was even a (staged!) fight between two of our history staff over unmarked books that Shaun and James had to referee!  

Ms Smyth, meanwhile, donned a school uniform and attended lessons throughout the day, covering some of Shaun's timetable and some of James'.  On the whole, Ms Smyth was a model student, although she was asked to leave her Computer Science lesson for getting out her mobile phone when these are a clearly banned item!

The event has raised money for both Claire House and State of Mind, charities the school are very proud to support.
