A group of pupils from our Secondary Department were very lucky enough to recently be invited to experience a day of Fishing in Brentwood. They visited Tylers Common Fishery where they learnt about the different skills that are needed to go fishing. As you can see from the photos they did extremely well!
On Wednesday 20th June a group of Key Stage 3 pupils took part in the SESSSA Athletics Tournament at Basildon Sporting Village. It was a very warm day but despite this every pupil managed to return to school with a medal and many pupils came first and second in their events. Overall Cedar Hall School came 2nd which was a fabulous result. Well done to all who took part!
Year 11 Prom
On Wednesday 13th June the Year 11 pupils attended their Prom. They arrived in style in Limousines and had their photographs taken on the red carpet. Once inside they were entertained by a magician and were served a drink from the Cocktail Bar. During the evening they sat down for a meal together and then enjoyed time dancing and having some more photos taken with props etc. A lovely night was had by all!
Duke of Edinburgh Expedition
A huge well done to the group of Year 10 pupils who completed their Bronze expedition recently. The pupils walked for miles during the day, cooked their own dinners with trangias (outdoor camping stoves!) and then camped out overnight in tents. They even had time to have some fun, rolling tractor tyres down hills and hiding in tree trunks! Despite the hard work everyone had an amazing time whilst creating some lovely memories with their friends.
Duke of Edinburgh Award Ceremony
On Tuesday 27th March an award ceremony celebrating the Year 11's Duke of Edinburgh achievements took place at the school. The Mayor of Castle Point attended along with parents/carers and families of the pupils. Each pupil received their Bronze award and staff took time to praise all of their hard work. A huge well done to all of them.
Growing Communities Competition
Our older Secondary pupils were set the challenge of designing a plot to grow their own healthy packed lunch. All of the entries were submitted to the Growing Communities competition and we were very pleased to hear that Owen in Year 10 won first prize! The prize is £750 of allotment equipment and an opportunity to turn the winning design into reality by planting it with the help of a gardening expert. A huge well done to Owen!
Mrs Bruty's Maths Lessons
Pupils in Mrs Bruty's Maths lessons have been learning all about weight. They have been testing some mystery bags to see which was the heaviest and which was the lightest. Some pupils also tested their strength by holding out a kilogram weight and seeing whether it got heavier the longer they held it! Adam explained that just because something is bigger it doesn't mean it is heavier as it depends on the item's mass.
Each Friday Mr Sankey, Miss Stone and a Year 10 class spend the day at Writtle College near Chelmsford. Writtle was established in 1893 and offers a range of land-based, design and sport courses at various levels of academic study including Postgraduate, Undergraduate, Further Education, Short Courses and Apprenticeships. Our Year 10 pupils spend time each week in various areas of the college doing interesting things such as gardening, woodwork and working with the animals.
