Our thoughts and prayers are with the families and friends of those who lost their lives at the Manchester arena on Monday night.  Also, we pray for those injured in this terrible tragedy.  We at Alder Community High School stand for peace, tolerance and understanding; we stand united in solidarity with the people of Manchester and in particular with all the families affected at this most difficult of times.

We are providing support for our students, some of whom attended the concert, and or their families.  Please contact the appropriate progress leader if your child (or you as a parent/carer) needs advice or support.

Mr O'Regan

Uniform standards are excellent here at Alder but to improve them even further and to reduce issues caused by so called ‘back to school’ sections in shops and supermarkets, we have worked with our suppliers, Kids Stop and JFC to produce unique Alder branded trousers/skirts; I believe it will relieve the pressure on parents and carers!  The girls’ trousers and skirts have a thin green trim along the waistband; the boys’ trousers have a thin green trim along the pocket.

 Prior to half term my assembly highlighted the plight of the homeless  -  both from the point of view of people as well as animals.  A target of 834 tins of food was set  -  one tin from each student/adult in school or 25p which would then be used to buy tins.  The target was met!!!!  Over 1000 tins/packets of food was brought/bought and this will be being distributed at centres in Tameside.
