Drop it and learn

Students and staff at Hillside High School in Bootle have watched a wintry bare tree flourish and grow as shoots of knowledge have appeared on its branches.

Each day everyone stopped what they were doing at 2.50pm and wrote down the most interesting thing they had learned on a leaf.

These leaves filled the branches of the tree and demonstrated the rich and varied learning that takes place in school.

Headteacher, Mrs Amanda Ryan, said: “Hillside High School puts learning at the heart of everything that goes on and students understand that real progress is made when they stop to reflect on what they are learning and why.

“We are all immensely proud of the achievements of our students and our learning tree represents the rapid rate at which our skills and knowledge grow every day at Hillside.”
