Exams Start with a Good Breakfast

Our Year 11 students have the opportunity to fuel up and prepare themselves for their exams, thanks to our local supermarkets. Scientific studies have proven that to maintain focus and perform well in school and particularly in exams, eating a healthy breakfast is vital.

The lucky students now have access to some healthy cereals and fruit juice following a kind donation from the local Asda store as part of their ‘Asda in the Community’ scheme. In addition, the Clacton Co-op store has donated £100, used to purchase breakfast bars. The students have been tucking in this week before their exams, to help fuel their brains throughout their morning exams. Many thanks to Asda and the Co-op for their kind donations to help our Year 11 students perform at their best for the morning exams.

New Inclusive Sports Club

After the Whitsun half-term we are launching a new Inclusive Sports Club which is open to everyone. Students can join in every Friday to try out some new and unique sports in the school gym from 3.15pm to 4.15pm.
• Could you score a goal completely blindfolded?
• Do you think you could win a game of volleyball without moving from a chair?
• How easy would it be to save a goal just by listening to the sound of the ball?
Please encourage your child to come along and have-a-go!

Half-Term is Here!

The summer term is flying by and we finish today for the Whitsun half-term. We are back to school on Monday 3rd June for seven action-packed weeks, until the start of the summer holidays.

Air Cadets’ Trip of a Lifetime

Three very lucky CCHS sixth form students have recently returned from an aviation camp in Lakeland Florida, USA. Georgia Crick, Clare Rose and Ian Stainer are all members of the Clacton Air Cadets and joined other Royal Air Force Air Cadets for the two-week experience of a lifetime.

The cadets spent a week volunteering at the Sun ‘n Fun International Air Show, the world’s second largest flying expo. Along with sixty other air cadets from the UK, they attended practical workshops, marshalled aircraft on the ground, helped with crowd control around historical military aircraft and met with various pilots and engineers.
Air Cadets’ Trip of a Lifetime
The second week of the camp was more relaxed with excursions to Busch Gardens and Universal Studios, as well as a tour around an operational US Air Force station. The cadets also visited the Commonwealth War Graves at Arcadia Oak Ridge cemetery, where they formed a Guard of Honour for British pilots who died during their training in the USA, in preparation for World War II operations. All three students agreed that the trip was one of, if not, the best experience of their lives.
Clacton Air Cadets meet every Tuesday and Thursday evening from 7pm to 9.30pm at the Venture Centre, Plough Corner in Little Clacton; new members, aged 12 and over, are always welcome.
