Our two local Senior Schools keep our readers up-to-date with what has been going both in and out of school!

Chesham High Sports Relief

Hundreds of Chesham High School students have been running a mile over the past week in a bid to raise money for Sport Relief.

The project of every student

running one mile was inspired by Eddie Izzard running 43 marathons in 51 days and raising £300,000 for Sport Relief. The aim is for every student to pay £1 to run a mile. Although this isn’t the same as Eddie’s contribution, it should raise more than £1,000 for charity as well as bringing the school together in a philanthropic exercise.

Sport Relief: a day when you can run through the streets of London dressed as a dalek without feeling embarrassed.

A day like Sport Relief has inspired people from the likes of Eddie Izzard and David Walliams to the pupils of Chesham High. Students are sponsoring themselves £1 to run a mile each to raise money.

Half the money raised from Sport Relief goes to causes in England, Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland, the other half is spent trying to help the people of Uganda and such countries. Overall, whether accepting

Chesham Park

millions or pennies Sport Relief have raised over £30 million.

Auschwitz Visit

As part of the school's Humanities specialist status initiative, two Year 12 students, Ashling Coakley-Burns and Greg Wloch participated in the lessons from Auschwitz project, organised by the Holocaust Educational Trust.

This involved attending two half-day seminars and a one day visit to Auschwitz concentration camp in Poland. Since returning from the visit back in February the two have become

‘ambassadors’ for the project and are conducting a series of assemblies to the entire school on the lessons they have learned.

The school received wonderful news at the beginning of March when it was confirmed that the school is one of six in Buckinghamshire to be part of the government ‘Building Schools for the Future’ initiative.

This will mean that in the coming years there will be an investment of over £13 million to improve their learning and teaching facilities together with an improvement in the recreational space. This news opens up an exciting opportunity at the school who say they will keep everyone updated as to the progress of this project and they will be involving students, parents and the local community from the Chesham area as they plan for the future changes and improvement to the buildings and infrastructure at the college.

‘10 Tree Challenge’

Thirteen students from Chesham Park travelled to Sandridge, near St Albans in Hertfordshire, on 5 March to help plant England’s largest new native forest.

The challenge was for each of the students to plant ten trees in under two hours. The school's students succeeded brilliantly, planting 120 trees in total.
