Well done to the Year 13 Sociology students who took part in a workshop on Thursday 24th January with Ali Roberts who works for the ‘Cheshire Youth Commission on Police and Crime’ . Ali works with young people in the area on behalf of the Police and crime commissioner for Cheshire, David Keane, to gather the views from young people in the area on the role of the police. Students used their knowledge from the crime and deviance topic and personal views to discuss some of the issues facing the police today and how relationships between the police and young people can be improved.
Thank you to Ali for leading the workshop and to the students for their excellent contributions.
During my final week as Headteacher of Helsby High School I have been overwhelmed by cards, messages and gifts from current and former: students; parents/carers; staff and governors. I have been touched and humbled by the response from the whole school community and I have been particularly moved by the lovely comments that people have made about my tenure.
I would like to say a very big thank you to you all. It has been a privilege to lead such a fantastic school and it was not easy for me to leave the school community for the final time on Friday afternoon.
I would like to send you all my very best wishes for the future.
On Thursday 20 December 2018 students and staff from Helsby High School donated £500 each to Chester Aid to the Homeless and Runcorn and District Foodbank in a cheque presentation at the school. Robert Bisset from Chester Aid to the Homeless and Colin Keiley from Runcorn and District Foodbank were presented with the cheques by students from Year 7 – 10. The money had been raised by students donating £1 in order to wear their own clothes on the last day of term.
As a nice surprise the school also donated over 50 hampers of food that the students had collected as part of our annual hamper appeal. Prior to the presentation, we provided the local senior citizens of our community with over 90 hampers being delivered to their home or being taken away after the senior citizens’ party that was held in school on Tuesday 18 December.
On behalf of the students, staff and governors I would like to thank the families of our students who have given so generously this year and also wish you all a very merry Christmas.
