Tell, Serve and Give at Alsop

Alsop students develop a Tell, Serve and Give initiative as part of the centenary celebrations at the school. Former Headteacher, Mr Arthur Roberts and 22 retired staff were served lunch and given gifts, as an act of kindness and generosity.

This year Alsop High School celebrates its centenary year. Students decided to develop a number of kindness initiatives in preparation for the Tell, Serve and Give outreach events organised in partnership with Liverpool Diocese. They organised a lunch for Mr Arthur Roberts who was Headteacher at Alsop High School from 1971-1988. Mr Roberts, was accompanied by 22 former members of staff.

During the morning, students served the VIP guests with refreshments, followed by a nostalgic tour of the school. For some staff it was their first visit since they left over twenty years ago.

Mr Roberts writes:

“I wish to express my pleasure and thanks for arranging this visit to Alsop as part of the centenary celebrations. We were most impressed by the polite and confident way, in which students showed us around the school. Thank you so much”

The students and visitors had the opportunity to TELL and share their stories. The students were very keen to capture these memories of school life during the last decades of the twentieth century. The young people spoke eloquently, about how their school has evolved, and the plans for numerous centenary celebration events.

One of the visitors wrote:

“It is wonderful to see how well the school is progressing. The students we meet were lovely – confident, chatty and they were genuinely interested in our memories.”

The students then had the privilege to SERVE a lunch of home-made scouse followed by a celebratory piece of cake. After lunch, the students were encouraged to GIVE each guest a bunch of daffodils, and a specially commissioned centenary mug and pin badge.

Mr Allan Corlett, served on the staff from 1975 to 2009 writes:

“The Alsop students were a credit to the school. They were charming, polite and so confident. The school itself looked amazing, the students clearly appreciate their learning environment and take great care with their grounds, classrooms and buildings.

“Our lunch was delicious and so well served by the students. I need the recipe! I wish you well in your preparations for the 100 Years Celebration.”

The event is one of a programme of events to commemorate the centenary of the school. The centenary will be launched, on Friday 8thMarch, by the Rt. Rev John Sentamu, the Archbishop of York.

Former students and staff are encouraged to visit the school website for further information about the #Alsop100 Centenary.
