The CCHS General Election

PROUD - DiversityLast week, students from across the school took part in our own CCHS election, voting for the political party that they felt would be best suited to run the country. Form teachers talked about the key facts from each of the party manifestos, without discussing their own political alliances, so students could make an informed decision.
A total of 661 students voted; their first experience of a democratic election. A number of our PROUD ambassadors undertook the The CCHS General Electionofficial CCHS count on Election Day. The CCHS election result was announced on Friday morning, although it was a little later than the official election results! The result had a completely different outcome than the genuine election, with the Green party coming top. Green Party – 262; Conservatives – 134; Labour – 92; Brexit – 53; Liberal Democrats – 41; Independent – 6; UKIP – 5.

The Joy of Giving at ChristmasThe Joy of Giving at Christmas

Staff and students at Clacton County High School helped to spread some Christmas cheer last 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 nine years ago and has helped focus the students on the idea of giving something at Christmas. Last Thursday, 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.
