Choir Spread Some Christmas Cheer

The school’s Affinity Choir have been busy spreading some festive magic around Clacton with a number of carolling engagements recently. They performed at the Westcliff Theatre during their annual Rotary Community Carol Service before singing at another service the following evening.

At the end of last week, the choir joined forces with the Rotary Club of Clacton Jubilee at Morrison’s Supermarket in Little Clacton. They spent the afternoon putting shoppers in the Christmas mood and helping the Rotarians with their collection in aid of Shelter Box and other Rotary charities.

The Joy of Giving at Christmas

The Joy of Giving at ChristmasStaff and students at Clacton County High School helped to spread some Christmas cheer this week, with our annual Shoebox Appeal. Students kindly donated gifts and filled over a hundred shoeboxes, which were wrapped and placed around our school Christmas tree ready for delivery.
The initiative was set up eight years ago and has helped focus the students on the idea of giving something at Christmas, rather than just compiling a ‘Wish List’. Earlier this week, the residents of Holly Court sheltered housing, each received an early present. Student representatives delivered the gift boxes and wished each resident a ‘Merry Christmas’ on behalf of all the Clacton County High School community.
The Joy of Giving at ChristmasThe residents were again overwhelmed with the kindness and generosity of our students as they welcomed their gifts of chocolates, hats, scarves, bubble bath and many, many more presents. Anchor Housing Manager, Ela Crabtree-Soanes, was full of praise for everyone who helped; "The generosity and thoughtfulness of the students at Clacton County High School has once again astounded us. You make so many people happy at Christmas time each year. For some of our residents this is the only Christmas present they receive. Thank you all so much."
Well done and thank you to all our parents, students and staff who contributed to this wonderful and kind gesture.
