What a fantastic time we have had at Chapel-en-le-Frith High School today spending £2000 on new books for our school library on the Browns Book Bus. Students have been invited to get involved in selecting a range of new resources for our school library to make sure that what we have on offer for all our students is relevant, up-to-date and exciting. Ali Coe, the community champion from Tesco, came to visit and enjoyed getting involved and seeing our students benefit from the money we have been awarded from the Tesco Bags of Help scheme. The Buxton Advertiser also sent along a photographer to this event - look out for photos of our wonderful student librarians in next week’s issue.
Well done to our Warhammer Team. The boys came 2nd place in the national finals of the School League Competition. It was a close competition and we were really pleased with 2nd place given that most of our opposition were A-level students. This is the best our school has ever done in the competition and we have our sights firmly set on the national champion trophy for next year! Extra credit to one of the team for being awarded the ‘General of the Tournament’ award.
A group of year 8 students were recently invited to participate in a Giant Masks making project with Mrs Smart in school. The aim of the project was to inspire students to be adventurous and experiment in producing large scale artwork, increasing their skills, enjoyment and confidence. Some of the fantastic results can be seen here.
