Our active support towards the engineering status of Chelmer Valley High School has been recognised. The Head of Area led a workshop on this at The Engineering conference.The year 7 students built trebuchets to look at the engineering behind attacking castles.
We are actively involved in charity work and fundraising. For example, we have been involved in Operation Christmas Child for a number of years. We have also raised money for a number of projects. We are aiming to raise £1000 for a play area for an orphanage in Kenya – following the Matron’s visit to Essex and her talks to Year 7 students, we are following the lead of our Year 7 students, some of whom raised over £100 even before we had decided what our response was going to be!
Following the annual Year 7 Engineering day, we raise money throughout the year for Water Aid – through a range of activities such as cake sales and sponsored student hair cuts.
We have an annual Holocaust Day for Year 9 in March, and are privileged to welcome a Holocaust survivor to our school. (Students pictured above with Mala Tribich)
