The Principal Reports......
It is the time of year when for many of our students it is heads down into revision as the examination period is now upon us. Students have worked incredibly hard and I would like to wish all of those involved in exams the very best of luck. Last year we saw record breaking results and I sincerely hope that we can emulate this again for this group of students.
‘PROUD’ remains the school’s ethos and although exam results are vital, there are so many other achievements of which CCHS is rightly very proud. Our students are involved in supporting lots of worthy causes and have raised a substantial amount of money for charities this year such as, Children in Need £658, Sports Relief £1,125, Headway Essex £1,700 and the Rosemary Suite in Colchester £1,820. This is to name but a few and the students are always trying to raise funds, including head-shaving, for causes that they feel extremely passionate about; well done to everyone for fundraising and donating.
We have also had a very successful year with sporting achievements; school success in a wide range of team competitions but a special mention for our Year 8 Netball team who became District Champions. There were also some amazing individual successes in Cross-Country, Table-Tennis and Karate. At the Coastal Athletics Competition held on Thursday, 8th May we are very proud to announce that CCHS students won all the trophies in the year groups 7 to 10; congratulations to all the participants.
We are also currently preparing for one of our main calendar events; the annual school musical - this year it is Madness favourite "Our House". This will be held over 3 nights from Wednesday, 9th July and the hard work and dedication of all involved never fails to disappoint.
As well as acknowledging their academic achievements our students are a very talented group with a diverse range of interests. As educators, parents and the community we should be justly proud of everything they achieve and celebrate their dedication.
