CCHS Celebrates at the Tendring Youth Awards 2019

The fourth Tendring Youth Awards took place this week with Clacton County High School featuring in four of the eleven categories, with five nominations in total. The annual awards celebrate some of the fantastic young people who live, study and work in Tendring, as well as the adults who support them. Congratulations to Year 12 student Harry, who was nominated for the Learning Achievement Award, Year 11 student Millie and the cast and production team of Les Miserablés, who were shortlisted for the Arts Award, as well as Year 9 swimmer Alfie in the Outstanding CCHS Celebrates at the Tendring Youth Awards 2019Achievement Award.
The staff and students, who attended the awards evening, were ecstatic that CCHS picked up over a quarter of the awards on the night. Senior Reprographics Technician and Senior Midday Assistant, Sue Crotty, picked up the Unsung Hero Award, followed by Year 9 student Abigail in the Learning Achievement category and then the cast and production team of Les Miserablés were announced as the overall winners and collected the Committee Award. The evening also featured performances by talented young people from across our district, including excerpts from the CCHS Les Miserablés production – solo renditions by Year 11 student Lola and Harry in Year 12.
Congratulations to all our nominees and award winners; we are exceedingly proud to have been so well represented at the awards evening, which helps demonstrate the outstanding commitment and talent of the students we help nourish at CCHS.

Computer Science in Berlin

Computer Science in Berlin
Computer Science students had a fantastic time in Berlin recently, during a three-day Learning on Location trip to the German capital. The students, from Years 9 and 10, visited many of the famous sites such as the Brandenburg gate, Berlin TV Tower and the memorial to the Jewish Holocaust victims. Students also visited a technology museum to view how different technologies have advanced over the years, along with another, charting the history of gaming. Here, students had the opportunity to play many different types of games – including some from the 80’s and 90’s, much to the delight of the accompanying staff who were able to re-live their teenage years by playing their favourite games once again.

The highlight for many was a tour of the BMW motorbike factory where 700 motorbikes are produced a day by over 2000 workers. They saw how technology and automation is utilised to make one of the most efficient production lines in the world.
