The Principal Reports:

Neil Gallagher, PrincipalThe next two weeks are very full on in terms of the examination schedule for Year 11 and Sixth form students and then this period gradually starts to wind down. This does not mean to say that life at CCHS quietens as the summer term is a very busy time of year, preparing for many of the important annual events of the school calendar, including welcoming those students who will begin their academic life at CCHS in September.
This year we are very pleased to welcome the return of our summer musical after a three-year break; the 2017 production ‘Made in Dagenham’. Make a note in your diaries for the performance of your choice: Thursday 6th to Saturday 8th July, the curtain goes up at 6.30pm. For the first time, tickets are available to buy online, so please follow the link on the website or you can find it in this week’s edition of Parent News.
12th to 16th June is Healthy Eating Week in school. Throughout the curriculum and REAL days, indeed, at any given opportunity, we try to educate our students on the importance of eating a balanced and healthy diet. We also work on developing their common sense skills so they know and understand the impact that certain foods and drinks can have on their body e.g. energy drinks, part of the reason that we took the decision to ban them from the school site. We also understand how difficult it can be to get children to try something new, they can often can be very ‘anti’ if offered something they don’t know or recognise. This week in Clouds, students will be tempted by special taster opportunities and encouraged to think about their “5-a-day”. Lessons will feature food and drink related topics, looking at where their food comes from; beyond the supermarkets, food production and sustainable farming. A very interesting week and perhaps you might even see some broadening of your child’s taste buds!
This week is also a very busy week for our Year 12 students as they begin to think in earnest about their final year and then life after CCHS. They now need to start preparing for the next phase in their life whether this be university, apprenticeships or work. Activities this week include: an Essex University Research trip, help with UCAS application preparations and a mock interview day.
Coming up: Ninety Year 9 students are out on a Geography field trip in the local area, District Athletics Competition at the Colchester Garrison, Years 7 – 10 Girls welcome Colne Community students to our school for a rounders tournament, sixty Year 7 girls will take part in a very special ‘Women in Engineering Day’. Finally, a group of our students will be assisting Mrs Wicks with a very special Forest Schools Learning Activity, in our orchard and on the field, with a group of students from St Clares RC Primary School.
Neil Gallagher, Principal CCHS
