Chancellor's 3G Pitch
September 30, 2017
By Chancellor's School
We would like to install a 3G Pitch on our school site for pupil and community use. This will increase engagement in sport not only within school but from the community. The durable, specialised surface will allow access to sport all year round and will protect players' joints more than an ordinary grass surface. It will be easier to maintain and will provide a quality source of revenue for the school by hiring it out to the local and wider community.

Our project will enhance the school’s sports facilities and increase opportunities for our students and members of the wider community to access sports all year round. We believe that the installation of a 3G pitch will:
  • engage more pupils in sport. build links with our community through offering the pitch for community groups.
  • enable access to a facility that will help to educate about the importance of exercising for a lifetime
  • encourage children to improve their fitness levels during PE including muscular and cardiovascular endurance, strength and flexibility.
  • promote opportunities for children to be creative, cooperative and competitive and to face up to different challenges both as individuals and in groups.
  • reinforce the understanding of many subjects taught in the classroom e.g. Mathematics. Movement is also associated with enhanced brain functioning.
  • will enable the school and community to take advantage of the 3G pitch and use it to meet and make new connections.
  • assist children who have yet to develop their verbal communication skills thus, their confidence in physical abilities can lead to positive feelings of self-esteem
  • enable access for learning the notion of fair play, honest competition, good sportsmanship and dealing with both success and defeat.

Red Nose Day
March 27, 2017
By M Runagall, Year 13 Student
As you will all know, last Friday 24th March was Red Nose Day. Every year the school holds events to raise as much money as possible for this deserving cause, and this year was no exception.

The Sixth form were given the opportunity to come into school in fancy dress for the day. We had some fantastic costumes including the Nativity scene, the mystery gang, Bill and Ben, a group of tourists and many more. In addition to this, the Sixth Form ran a Man vs Food event at lunch with a group of Sixth Formers and Mr Legarda having to eat as many items of a particular food as they could in a given amount of time.
The challenges included eating bananas, marshmallows and crackers and was very entertaining to watch.

Thank you to everyone who came along to support the event and to everyone who took part throughout the day, you have helped us to raise over £500 to support people around the world who are less fortunate than ourselves.

St Francis Hospice Speaker

By A Rowszar, Year 13 Student
Last Friday, February 24th, an event’s organiser Lucy from the St Francis Hospice came into the Sixth Form assembly.

The assembly consisted of a presentation of the amazing work the Hospice does, and the many way it can be supported. During the assembly the Chancellor’s Sixth Form was also awarded the Dasher’s Cup, which they achieved for the biggest group present at the Santa Dash they took part at the end of last year.

The assembly was very successful and the Sixth Form will certainly be supporting the Hospice in the future.

Sixth Form Basketball
February 20, 2017
By I Naran, Year 12 Student
On Wednesday 8th February, a sixth form mini basketball tournament took place during the lunch hour to raise money for the Leavers’ Ball 2017.

It was a very enjoyable event and sixth form students from both years 12 and 13 participated, with over 30 students made up of 6 different teams. There were also a lot of the Sixth Form who weren't specifically playing in the tournament, but came along to support their friends and classmates who took part. Multiple games were played in the tournament, and the amount of wins were tallied for each game. Congratulations Essy Mashinchy’s team for finishing the tournament with 4 wins.

Overall the event was a fun event to take part in; we'd also like to say thank you for those who turned up and supported and took place in the event.
