The Principal Reports:

Neil Gallagher, PrincipalWe are now on the countdown until the Christmas holidays and I am sure that you are all busy at home in the build up to the festive season.
At this time of year school is very hectic. Students continue with their studies and lessons unabated but also try and cram in additional activities. Year 11 students are very busy with their mock exams and these continue right up until this coming Friday, 9th December. Despite the time of year, I am very proud of how focussed they have been and the mature approach they have all taken towards exams. A reminder to parents of Year 11 students that this coming Thursday, 8th December, is your final Parents’ Evening within the mainstream school and we hope to see as many of you there as possible.
Our annual Shoe Box Appeal, bringing together gifts for the elderly residents of Holly Court in Clacton, is in full swing. Thank you to our parents and students who have donated items to allow us to fill the boxes. The residents are always so grateful to receive them and delighted to meet the students who make the deliveries. If you wish to donate and haven’t done so yet, please could we have any contributions by Friday, 9th December.
The final week of term - next week, is extremely busy with Attendance Rewards Trips to the Cinema for all year groups, celebration assemblies and PE inter-form competitions for Year 7 & 8 students, who will compete against each other in swimming, basketball and dodgeball. There has even been time to squeeze a special Parental Engagement Workshop in Science next Wednesday (14th December); we are looking forward to seeing parents in school to ‘have a go’ at the exciting things their children get up to in science lessons!
Friday, 16th December is the last day of term at CCHS. It is a non-uniform day to raise money for charity. Students come to school with a £1 and any money raised will be divided equally between the British Heart Foundation and CRY (Cardiac Risk in the Young). School finishes at 1.30pm on the final day.
Neil Gallagher, Principal CCHS
