Chapel girls u13s are Derbyshire runners up! With only 3 teams making finals day at Derby, Chapel were guaranteed a medal after success against Lady Manners in the previous round. West Park, Chapel and Bolsover were competing for the medals. Like the boys, Chapel made the final, and saw the girls take on a strong West Park side. Bowling first, the girls managed to restrict West Park to 83/7 in their 12 overs. In another nail biting response, Chapel required 12 runs off 6 deliveries, unfortunately falling just short - 72 for the loss of 7 wickets. This was a fantastic effort from the girls who enjoyed the day and improved their standard and knowledge of cricket considerably.
We were pleased to take two teams to the county finals this month. In the individual races Tom Prince rowed the furthest in three minutes and became county champion and Joe Whibley finished second by 8 meters in his race; he walked away with the silver medal as runner up.
The u13 boys came runners up in the Derbyshire Indoor Cricket finals, held at The Gateway Centre, the home of Derbyshire Cricket. Captain Reece Johnson chose to field in the first of the semi-finals. Chapel were successful, thanks to a fantastic knock of 23 retired from the skipper. This took the boys to the final against a strong looking Tibshelf side. In the final, Chapel elected to field first, and Tibshelf managed 86/7 in their 12 overs. Chapel were 72/6 in reply, with Aiden Theyer retiring at 15. This meant a silver medal for the team. A fantastic achievement - well done boys!
At Chapel-en-le-Frith High School the staff and students had a fantastic time celebrating the 20th anniversary of World Book Day. There were lots of activities taking place in school throughout the week in the run up to the day including a tutor time quiz where the students had to guess the member of staff from a photo of their book shelf amongst other book themed questions. Well done to the following tutor groups who won prizes: EMEb, TMOb, NGN and DSSh.
Throughout the week all year 7 and 8 students took part in a sponsored Readathon. This worthy charity raises money to provide children’s hospitals with regular storyteller visits and book cases packed full of brand new books. At the same time this promotes reading amongst children and young people who take part in Readathon across the country reminding them of the fun of reading for pleasure. All week in their English lessons students were busy reading books to raise money for this worthwhile cause.
On the day, year 7 students came in fancy dress as their favourite book character. We had some fantastic entries this year including a wonderful Willy Wonka who really got into character giving out chocolate bars to staff and fellow students and an adorable Paddington Bear. Prizes were given to the following students for their fancy dress costumes:
Riley Adlington, Jack Bancroft, Gabriel Mooney, Holly Paling, Jaz Wibberley-Jack and Charlotte Patterson and Anna Tamsons.
At lunchtime, the library was teeming with students from all year groups who had teamed up with staff to take part in the big World Book Day quiz. One team even managed to persuade Mr Grieves to be on their team! Well done to the following teams who won the quiz:

2nd Prize – The Bookaneers, Tabbie Thorp, Holly Howard, Sian Boothman and Mrs Cottell.
