Well done Santa Runners!

Well done to our Santa Runners! Miss Woods, Miss Bleasedale and Miss Warren donned their Santa suits on Sunday and completed the 5k MUFC Santa Run, raising a whopping £428.00 for the Royal Manchester Children’s Hospital!

They all worked very hard to prepare for the run, with Miss Bleasedale visiting the gym at 6am, Mrs Warren running and Miss Wood jogging 3 times a week, even in the rain!

Can we get them over £500.00? You can still donate on their JustGiving page, or text your amount with MHAA50 to 70070.

Defeated but passionate and proud

Manchester Health Academy’s U16 Girls Football team lost 3-2 against Wright Robinson in the Manchester Schools’ U16 Cup Final last night.

In very windy conditions the girls got off to a slow start, with Wright Robinson having most of the early possession. Our girls were playing well, keeping the attacks at bay with timely interceptions and strong tackling. After 10 minutes the opponents had a corner and, after a defensive mix up, they managed to squeeze the ball into the net.

The impact of going behind got Manchester Health Academy to start playing the match that saw them getting into the final. Our players reacted well, creating problems for Wright Robinson’s defence and eventually scored with a great shot low into the corner to equalise. The second half saw Manchester Health Academy with the wind and dominant possession. Wright Robinson’s reaction was to pack the defence and midfield to neutralise our attacking potential. Our team grew in confidence and did not allow a shot on goal.

The second half remained goalless and so we went into extra-time. Manchester Health Academy again dominated the match but could not score against a keeper who seemed inspired throughout the game. For the first time, it took penalties to decide the game. We went first and missed, with Wright Robinson scoring to put us behind. We then scored and made a great save to keep us in the final. We unfortunately missed the next penalty which meant that we came Runners-Up for the second consecutive year.

The girls played with pride and passion and were again a credit to Manchester Health Academy.

Wythenshawe Women: Breaking Through

As part of a fashion show with a difference Megan Irlam and Faye Taylor from Year 10 have been working for the past few weeks on an outfit which challenges the stereotypes held about how career women should dress.

They decided on a football theme as Manchester United Foundation is one of the Academy’s partners. They redesigned football shirts giving them more of a feminine twist – ribbons, lace, roses, key words emblazoned across the shirts like “power”, “woman”. Their message was clear as they walked down the catwalk underneath the famous “Concorde” plane, at Manchester Airport: “we can be strong and assertive and we are not defined by what we wear”.

On the catwalk

On Manchester International Women’s Day students from the Academy watched the show and had the chance to listen to inspirational women from business talking about how they have broken through the glass ceiling. Speakers included the Governor of a Prison, a Chief Inspector of Police, a First Officer for a UK airline and successful local business women.  As part of the event, businesses have made a pledge to support local schools in and around Wythenshawe. Well done Megan and Faye!
