VE Day 75

Parent News is published a day early this week due to tomorrow’s special VE Day Bank Holiday. Seventy-five years ago the country celebrated the Victory in Europe and recently the British wartime spirit has been rekindled as we all help and look out for each other during the COVID-19 pandemic. Why not enter into the 1945 spirit during the lockdown holiday?
Timetable for the day
11am - Join the Royal British Legion for a two-minute silence on your doorstep.
3pm - Nation’s Toast to the Heroes of World War 2 – “To those who gave so much, we thank you,” followed by the Winston Churchill victory speech on BBC One.
4pm - Stay at Home Street Party - tea and scones or coffee and cake on your front lawn or forecourt.

In addition, this week the CCHS History Department has set our Year 7 and 8 students a challenge, as part of their Home Study, to research and design a memorial to recognise the 75th anniversary of the conclusion of WW2 in Europe. The competition closes on the 1st June, when a winner will be selected – see Show My Homework for more details.

CCHS PROUD Community

CCHS PROUD CommunityThis week we highlight another student who is fundraising for the NHS Heroes. Year 10 student Alfie is running 5km each day for seven consecutive days, wind, rain or shine! After hearing about all the hard work the NHS and frontline workers are doing every single day he wanted to do something. He is now raising money to provide for the charity that helps support them. Alfie is not a natural distance runner and over the last few weeks has built up his distance. To help Alfie to his target, please visit his JustGiving page.
