St Mary's is honouring the memory of police hero Dave Phillips in a series of fundraisers including cake sales and raffles.
Now Year 9 boys (pictured below) have competed in a five-a-side football tournament, with medals commemorating the policeman’s life.
The married father of two young daughters was mown down by the stolen red Mitsubishi pick-up he was trying to stop on a dual carriageway near Junction 1 on the M53.
The popular officer, aged 34, served with Merseyside Police on Wirral for nearly 10 years and was buried with full honours and a funeral service held in Liverpool’s Anglican Cathedral.
Head of Year 9 and PE teacher Mrs Nicola Lam, who organised the tournament, said: ‘The death of PC Phillips has deeply affected our whole school community, and he has been remembered in special assemblies and in other activities.
‘The football tournament was another way to honour him, and boys who took part now have medals to remember the occasion.’
The medals, engraved with the words ‘In Memory of PC Phillips 2015’, plus an engraved trophy, were donated by Capitol Solutions in Liscard.
