Music Prodigy Hannah’s Top Grade

Cardinal Heenan pupil Hannah Garnett has hit a high note in an international music examination.  

The Year 10 pupil has just gained a distinction in the Grade Eight saxophone examinations of The Royal Schools of Music at the tender age of 14.  Hannah also plays flute, clarinet and piano and will take her Grade Eight examination in flute in December. 

Mrs. Keith, curriculum leader for music at Cardinal Heenan, said: “Hannah's achievement is one that only the most talented musicians can hope to gain - the highest grade.  It’s a very remarkable feat for someone of her age.”

Hannah took up the instrument five years ago.  She plays in the Cardinal Heenan orchestra and the Leeds Youth Jazz & Rock Orchestra.  Talented Hannah will tour South Africa with the Leeds orchestra this summer.  The trip includes concerts and performance workshops with a partnership school in Durban.  She also plays with the Leeds Youth Wind Band.

The examinations of the Associated Board of the Royal Schools of Music (ABRSM) are internationally recognised qualifications in music performance and theory.  Students need to prepare rigorously and respond to challenges in sight reading, scales and aural perception.  The demanding grade eight examination requires musicians to complete scales, modes, arpeggios, chords and a stylistic study.  Players have to perform a piece which had advanced stylistic techniques and sounds, with complex solo and improvisation.  They also sit two tests of listening to musical extracts for melodies and rhythms before playing them back.  Finally, they are quizzed on general knowledge of music and the instrument. 

Cardinal Heenan pupil Hannah Garnett, 14, gained a distinction in the Grade Eight saxophone examinations of The Royal Schools of Music.

Stock Market Winners

Stock_Market_Challenge.jpg

Pupils at Cardinal Heenan won Stock Market Challenge.

Pupils at Cardinal Heenan are stock market champions!  A Cardinal Heenan team of five Year 9 pupils (aged 14 and 15) beat 18 teams from schools across West Yorkshire as they traded shares and cash with the aim of making the most money in simulated stock market trading.  They were taking part in Stock Market Challenge, a business and enterprise event run by Leeds Metropolitan University and independent educational publisher 10 Lane Learning. 

Winners Sally Greaney, Joseph Fahy, Frances Grindrod, Lauren Hamilton and Sam Morris collected a trophy, gift vouchers and an invitation to visit to the offices of stockbrokers Redmayne Bentley in Leeds.

Competition organisers praised the winning Cardinal Heenan team for their well-researched but risky strategy which involved buying a large number of shares in one company towards the end of the competition.  Sally Greaney was awarded special commendation for her work as media analyst, which influenced her team’s decisions to buy and sell shares.

Another Cardinal Heenan team made up of Hannah Blinston, Joseph Booth, Niamh Burke, Lottie Jordens-Harris and Edmond Nyantou secured a top ten place.

Mr. Matterson, business teacher at Cardinal Heenan, said:  ‘Our pupils enjoyed the excitement of a live trading floor.  They made decisions under pressure and took calculated risks.  This was a fun way of testing Mathematical expertise and stimulating interest in business and economics.  It developed employability skills such as critical thinking and problem-solving.   Events such as this help students leave school better prepared for the world of work, with the confidence to make sound choices.’
