STUDENTS at Endon High School enjoyed a week of activities set outside of their usual timetabled classroom lessons.
On the Monday they took part in Self Respect sessions which were run by Ruby Girl and also Dove to help promote body confidence and self-esteem.
On the Tuesday, the English department organised a Readathon to encourage pupils to have more respect for literature.
This included time for pupils to read their favourite books and be read abstracts by the teachers of their favourite books.
English teacher Kayleigh Evans said: "The day was a complete success.
"Students behaved excellently and appeared engrossed in their books at many points, while enjoying hot chocolate and biscuits.
"Students were joined by teachers at intermittent times throughout the day, who read chapters from their favourite books, each visit was a surprise for the children, although the greatest surprise of all was a warm and fascinating visit from child author Jon Mayhew."
Also on the Tuesday Year Seven and Eight pupils raised awareness, respect and money for the LEPRA charity by doing a wide variety of activities, which included a large-scale aerobics workout with more than 200 people.
The Wednesday had a 'Respect for a life' focus and the whole of Year Seven were trained in key Heart Start first aid skills.
Wednesday evening also saw the Music department run 'A respect for Music Recital Night' showcasing the talent of many musicians at the school.
For the Thursday the whole school went completely off-timetable for the day under the theme 'Respect', and also welcomed 60 primary school children into their school for the day of activities.
All pupils had an opportunity to opt into various respect activities which included visits to the National Arboretum, Slavery Museum and Chester Zoo and also a chance to carry out some woodland conservation, to name but a few.
There were also opportunities in school such as respecting the arts, where they created a board and film on what respect was, how to show it and why it was important.
There was also the chance to work on 'Respect for green energy' looking at working on an environmentally friendly eco powered car.
Students also helped to host a fund-raising community fair to raise money for fellow students going to Nepal next year and a chance to go and work in the community.
Teacher Nicky Tapley said: "The pupils and staff worked really hard to make this a successful and rewarding week.
"The pupils had a massive range of opportunities and a new found understanding and appreciation for the word 'Respect'. Thank you to all involved."
