Annual School Prize-giving

We were delighted to host the Annual School Prize Giving at St Luke’s Church, Crosby on Thursday 3rd October. Many of the students from the Class of 2019 returned for the celebration. Over the preceding weeks teachers and senior staff had spent a lot of time deliberating and finalising the deserving prize winners which eventually saw 160 awards handed out.

Students were recognised for their attendance, progress, attainment and personal achievement (PRIDE). Furthermore there were eight Special Prizes including the Contribution to the Arts Award, Duke of Edinburgh Award plus the Prizes for Football, Netball and Service. The Governor’s Prize for Achievement went to Joshua Morrison and Max Dilworth and the Prize for Attainment to Katie Lloyd, Molly Kelly received the Prize for Service. During the evening Year 9 student Kiah McGuffie sang To Make You Feel My Love and unseen footage from Year 7 and the Prom were played.

It was a thoroughly enjoyable evening and we wish the Class of 2019 continued success.

Kooth launches in Sefton

Kooth is an online counselling and emotional well-being platform for children and young people, accessible through mobile, tablet and desktop and free at the point of use (www.kooth.com). The platform allows students to access information, gain support from the Kooth community and chat to trained counsellors about a wide range of potential issues.  All students at Chesterfield High School will have an introduction to Kooth during assemblies this week.

Macmillan Cake Sale

Year 12 marked the annual Macmillan Coffee morning with their very own Cake Sale on Friday 27th September. Demonstrating his leadership ability Jack Brady organised the event with help from fellow students Ellis Hemmings, Adam Hoyte, Robbie Knight, Harvey Dehavilland and Jenna Evans. Members of staff, students and parents kindly donated a variety of cakes. In particular, we were most impressed by a number of homemade cakes that were designed based on the European Day of Languages theme from the previous week. In total £185 was raised which will go towards the work carried out by MacMillan in supporting individuals diagnosed with cancer through their treatment, offering emotional, physical and financial support.
