LADYBRIDGE HIGH SPORTS MANIA Where the SPORTS world meets the SCHOOL world. Hello and welcome to our 2nd issue of the year. Here at Ladybridge High Sports Mania we have had a think and thought of better ways to produce a magazine that you like!

Also we’ve got our normal section and our fun page. So we’ve decided to base this issue on music and what’s been in

And finally students live their dream on radio to help you live yours. So Get Reading!!!!!


The blonde, famous for her barefoot performances, went straight to number one, knocking Usher into second position with his hit OMG, featuring Will I Am. Despite being knocked out of Simon Cowell’s 2008 series in the semi-final, Vickers didn’t let that break her spirit and has also become the first East Lancashire solo artist to be number one. Cowell immediately congratulated the 18-year-old by saying it was a ‘fantastic’ achievement. Vickers was live on Radio One’s chart show as her spot was announced, she couldn’t hold her excitement back, screaming: “Oh my God! Oh my God!” later we caught up with her and she said: “I’m beaming and so happy right now. I was very nervous before. It’s amazing and I just want to say ‘thank you so much’.” The single Once was released last month, while her album Tainted Cherry Tree was released on May 3.

The Interview - Diana Vickers Didn’t you have a mental breakdown after you were booted off The X Factor? No, I was just really exhausted because I had such an amazing time on the show. I had the adrenaline of being on the show every day and working really hard so I was exhausted afterwards. That’s what happens when you’ve been working really hard for ages, you get ill and run down. It’s like when you go on a crazy holiday to Ibiza for three weeks, then you get a cold afterwards. I’d done The X Factor tour and got signed. It was all a bit sudden and I got tired. What do you make of Jedward? They’re good entertainers. They’ve got an awkward endearing side to them I suppose and a lot of people love it. Have you got a typical fan? Young girls and lads but my gigs have been full of people in their twenties and thirties as well. A man in the street who looked about 60 told me he thought I was great the other day. It varies a lot. When people slated you for moving your hand whilst on stage, were you bothered? Not really. We all do things when we’re singing. I was just nervous. It’s something I did and got criticised for it. Your fans stand by you but some people who wanted Alexandra or JLS to win would have criticised anything that anyone else did because they were so in awe of their favourite ac t. Have you made a conscious effort to keep your arms under control? I just get on stage and whatever happens, happens. My body does what it does. Have you been sent anything nice for free? Shoes, clothes for the video shoots, nice things from Jo Malone and I’ve had mountains of Dairy Milk on my rider. I love it. I’ve specified it has to be at every gig. As long as I have a nice bit of Dairy Milk, a kettle and some honey I’m all set to perform. Have you been recognised when you weren’t expecting it? We were travelling in the middle of the night and I really needed a wee so we pulled over into this little hut café thing in the middle of nowhere. This woman said: ‘Oh my god, it’s Diana Vickers.’ It was weird. It was just her and this old man miles from anywhere. Have you ever asked anyone for their autograph? Noel and Liam Gallagher. I was ten and saw them at an airport in Majorca. I was really into Oasis at the time. They had a photo taken with me and were really lovely. Have you spent any of your money yet? I bought a Stella McCartney dress and a treadmill. The dress is beautiful, long and white and very elegant. Sadly, the treadmill is just sitting in a corner gathering dust. Have you ever been attacked by an animal? When I was a baby a swan jumped into my pram and started pecking me and cut me. My mum had to get it off. It was a big ordeal apparently but I can’t remember it. Then, when I was 11, my pet hamster crawled up my pants and bit me somewhere personal. He was called Nibbles, which is very ironic.


As the FIFA World Cup games come closer to time the teams tension builds. With all eight groups keen to go the games are all set up, and will begin on the 11th June they will last a month before the all important trophy is handed to the deserving team. The 19th tournament brings a lot of excitement and will surely be a period of time we will all remember. Current Champions, Italy, are up for the challenge and just like any team, they too are aiming for the prize! Group A

Well, you’ve probably heard about the general election 2010 and in school we had to cast a vote for the three main parties; Labour run by Gordon Brown, Conservatives (tories) run by David Cameron and the Liberal Democrats run by Nick Clegg! Here at the Ladybridge High Sports Mania we’ve been following the election very closely and our political reporter has been watching the primeministerial debates. On May 6th 2010 we were expected to get the information on who is going to be the prime minister for England but because our magazine needs to be finished on the day of the election and the BBC have give us knowledge that we can find out the next prime minister anytime between 10pm May 6th and 10am May 7th. However on our VLE we’ve dedicated a page for the elections with live coverage for the weeks to come. Here are the main stories for what has been happening on May 6th. David Cameron was the first of the party leaders to cast their vote, at a community hall in Witney in Oxfordshire shortly after 10.30am, accompanied by his wife Samantha. His visit was delayed by a whimsical demonstration from two protesters. Prime Minister Gordon Brown went to vote shortly after 11.00am at a community centre close to his home in North Queensferry, Fife. His wife Sarah was with him. Lib Dem leader Nick Clegg arrived at a polling station in Sheffield Hallam at 11.20am. His wife Miriam is unable to vote in the general election because she is a Spanish citizen. UK Independence Party candidate and former party leader Nigel Farage was slightly injured in a light plane crash in Northamptonshire first thing this morning. A man has bet £5,000 on a Labour victory, according to bookmakers William Hill. Villagers in Chettisham, Cambridgeshire, have been casting votes in the bedroom of a bungalow. Voters in the Telford constituency are casting their ballots in the historic Iron Bridge Tollhouse. People in a Hull constituency are voting in a hairdressing salon.

Ladybridge High, Climbs Mount Kili For Billy ... Virtually... Well, Well, Well. On Tuesday may 4th 2010 students and staff battled it out to see who was the fastest to climb the worlds largest free standing mountain, Mount. Kilimanjaro ...virtually... The students and staff collected money for the charity Childreach international here is a bit about them: ...Unlock A Child's Potential... We are a UK based registered charity working directly with communities striving for positive change. By working hand in hand with children and their families we provide sustainable solutions, leading to self sufficiency. The students at Ladybridge High thought they would be faster than the staff in climbing the mountain. When we say virtually we mean they had to step on a step 738 times each and altogether with everybody that would be the same amount of steps it would take to climb the actual mountain. Although everybody had fun and the amount of people watching was unbelievable for people to show their support, there is a real message put behind this, there are children in Tanzania who would do anything for an education so they can achieve their goals of being able to work and earn a good wage. There are also young children in Tanzania who have no food and live on the streets. Childreach international will strive to make them have a good life. Now here is the moment you’ve all been waiting for. WHO WON?! Well we’re proud to announce that the Teachers of Ladybridge High School had won the students with 2minutes difference.


A True Living Experience

Manchester is one of the liveliest and most exciting cities in England. Since the Common Wealth Games were held, the city has had significant changes in recent years. Manchester is a multi-cultural city and has a population of 2,240,230 people. To many tourist Manchester is a mind-blowing city with fascinating shopping malls and spectacular night life. Yet, the most amazing thing about Manchester is the history. It’s hard to believe Manchester used to be an uncommon and dull atmosphere with a small population, but eventually the tables turned and it rapidly became known as a fabulous and famous city. Media City is a new project, which is being carried out in Manchester, Salford Quays. The project will end in late 2011 and will present jobs to 10,000 workers. The BBC will offer 1800 of these jobs and they will be looking mainly for a younger staff! Sounds interesting? Well Manchester has a lot more to offer ranging from entertainment to education and, you are even proud to be stood in Manchester knowing that this is the birth city of many of earths celebrities!
