Why is our
Editor Hanging Around???
the next month or so, our Editor, Patrick Trollope, will be
learning the basics of Aerial. If you do not know what that is, well
it is a kind of cross between circus performances, gymnastics and
dance. Why is he doing it? Because he is hoping to help the girls at
the Sophie Morris School Of Dance (Vertigo Aerial Arts) to raise
cash for charity. Also it is hoped that some of the money raised by
him and the class members will also go towards a performance rig
that will let the school take their children and adults out, into
the community, to perform at events. You can follow his progress or
lack of progress, and discover more on our Facebook
Page and also to
the Vertigo Aerial Arts
Facebook Page or better still
call around to The Fitness Factory,
Southport. We do not know if
the girls will get him to perform, but it is all in a good cause...
also for the enjoyment of our readers... If you do not have
Facebook, do not worry as we will bring you some cracking updates on
here too. Well he did say at the start of 2013 that he wanted a good
challenge this year for charity... This has to be one of the best
challenges he has had yet. Congratulations to Vertigo Aerial Arts
for thinking this evil challenge up! Email our newsroom at:-

events that you would like us to look at promoting.
ChildLine offers support to young
people across Merseyside as pupils wait for exam results
AS teenagers across Merseyside
wait patiently for their exam results, ChildLine is offering support
to those who are feeling anxious or worried.
ChildLine is encouraging young people in Merseyside to contact the
service by phone or online with any anxieties or worries about exam
results, either before or after they receive their results.
Last year, (2011/12) the ChildLine base in Liverpool received 288
contacts from children and young people about exam pressure.
Ann Pulling, ChildLine area manager said:- "Although many
young people in Merseyside will be enjoying the break from school,
we understand that many young people's minds will be on their
upcoming exam results. We hear from lots of young people each year
who are worried or panicking about their results, so we want to let
them know that they are not alone and that ChildLine is here to
listen to them."
Parents, family and trusted adults can help young people who may be
worrying by making space and time to ask them how they are feeling
about their exam results and talking to them about their concerns.
ChildLine has the following top tips for young people who are
feeling stressed about their results, or if they don't get the
results they had hoped for:-
► Tell someone how you are feeling; a parent, carer, friend or
teacher. Or if you want to speak to someone anonymously you can
contact ChildLine in confidence.
► Look at the options that are available to you such as re-sitting,
going to another university or college or changing to a similar
► If you are able to re-sit, think about what you would do
differently; you may need more help with revision or there might be
one area that you need to concentrate more on.
► Don't think that your whole future will be determined by your exam
results; it's not. There are lots of things out there for you to do
and gain experience in. Speak to your guidance councillor or even a
career advisor about the options available to you.
There is also lots of help, advice and fun things to do on the:-
exam stress' section of the ChildLine
