St Francis Hospice Speaker
February 28, 2017
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

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.

We are collecting vouchers again this year. Last year, we had a healthy total and would like to be able to purchase supporting equipment for lessons and clubs again.

There is a box for collection in main reception and we ask that any vouchers you receive are brought in and placed in there or handed to form tutors or PE teachers.

Thank you in advance of your support for this.

Lip Sync Battle
February 07, 2017
By M Runagall, Year 13 Student
Last Friday, 3rd February, the Sixth Form held their first ever ‘Lip Sync Battle’ as an event to raise money for this year’s leavers’ ball.

There was a great turn out, with students from both years of Sixth Form attending the event, be it to perform or just to support and enjoy from the audience.

Every single one of the performers put on an amazing show that was thoroughly entertaining to watch. We had performances from Honey G, Beyonce and Kanye, The Fresh Prince of Bel Air and even President Tump, as well as some other much-loved songs such as Bohemian Rhapsody, songs from Mamma Mia, and even a performance from Les Mis.

In the end there could only be one winner, and that much deserved title went to Poppy McDonnell in year 12, whose hilarious routine of ‘Billionaire’ performed by Donald Trump combined with the fantastic costume had everyone laughing. Well done Poppy, and thank you to everyone else who took part and supported the event.
Cranedale Update
February 01, 2017
By Mr P Hobbs, Teacher of Geography
Currently a group of 13 A level geographers have just completed the second full day out in the field collecting data to help with their A2 exams this summer.

Firstly, Monday was spent in the rather sleepy town of Malton (apparently the food capital of Yorkshire) collecting urban data allowing a better understanding of the methods used and possible criticisms. The weather was chilly, but kind, so all ended the day quite upbeat. Tuesday dawned with the promise of rain and a rather wetter day in the river. As it turned out, this failed to dampen any spirits, and a quality day collecting primary data in three locations in the North York Moors ensued. Chancellor's has welcomed another school for the river studies day, and we have seen some excellent cross school collaboration, not only with collecting data but also in negotiating some rather boggy ground, which threatened to consume more than one set of wellies. All at Cranedale are buoyant and getting some quality work done throughout.
