CHS Reward Day CrickFest 2018

We’re delighted to announce that we’re planning a Reward Day for all year groups on Thursday 19th July 2018, 11.00 am – 15.15 pm – CrickFest 2018.   In previous years, Progress Leaders have organised summer Reward Trips for Years 7-9.  This year we decided to offer students across all year groups an experience which they can enjoy with their friends and at a much lower cost than previous years, in a way that promotes community engagement and collaboration.

The aim of the day is to reward the students for their hard work and their good behaviour over a highly successful academic year.  The day will consist of a number of different festival themed activities ranging from live music on our main stage, catering vans, a number of different stalls, sports games and our very own on-site cinema.  Students are not expected to wear school uniform.

Due to some costs associated with this fun-filled celebration day, we are kindly asking for a contribution of £10.00 per student for their very own ticket to CrickFest, by Friday 13th July.  Please place the money in an envelope, labelled with the student name and form group and take to Mrs Walker or Miss Panfili in the MPS every breaktime (11.05 – 11.30 am).

Students may wish to bring a reasonable amount of money for the purpose of paying for food, activities on stalls and confectionery.   All money and other valuables will be in their sole charge and we cannot accept responsibility for loss or damage.  The canteen will not be selling break on this day but will be open for lunch, at a slightly earlier time of 12:00 – 13:00pm.

As a school, we relish the opportunity to work closely with parents, local businesses and community volunteers. If any parents, family friends or members of the community are in a position to offer financial input, stalls or ideas for the day, then we would greatly appreciate this in support of our efforts to make the day as successful as possible. We offer our grateful thanks for all those offers we have already received.

After the costs associated with the running of this day have been met, any money left over will be split between two charities; Bobath in memory of Tom Baxter (which is the chosen charity of his family) and Young Minds, a Mental Health charity which, as a Mental Health Pioneer school, we feel strongly about.  More information on both of these charities can be found by following the links below.

If you would like your son / daughter to experience this day, then please return consent form and the cash payment to Mrs Walker or Miss Panfili by Friday 13th July 2018.  We would encourage all students to participate in this experience, but if you foresee any issues or have any queries, then please contact your son’s / daughter’s Progress Leader in advance. 

If your son/daughter is in receipt of Free School Meals, their normal lunch time arrangement with the cashless catering system will continue on this day.  If any families are experiencing financial hardship we would ask that you please speak with your son’s/daughter’s Progress Leader so that suitable support can be put in place.
