Chippy Trixsters crowned British Champions

chippy trixtersThis weekend ‘The Chippy Trixsters’ team competed against the best Peewee- aged teams in the UK at the roller hockey National Championships at the Midlands Roller Arena, Lutterworth. The team, captained by Devon Shadbolt (8GS), included Brett Massey (8GS), Ellie Williams (7GN), Ellie Lewis (8WN), Brett Matthews (7EN) and Reuben Beck (8GS) from Chipping Norton School.

Over the course of the weekend they convincingly beat all their rivals. The final match on Sunday against Medway Assassins was a particularly tough game, but the team triumphed and are now British champions. The day also ended with Devon and Brett being picked by the entire team manager to be in the Peewee Dream Team, and Devon being equal top goal scorer for the weekend with 18 points and Brett Massey only conceding 3 goals. The team have qualified for the European Championships next year.

Many congratulations to the whole team!

Year 4/5 AGT Design & Technology Workshop

AGT DT workshopTwenty-eight Year 4 & 5 students from our 10 Partnership schools took part in the Design & Technology Workshop led by Mr Crudge, Head of Design & Technology. The pupils were asked to research the meaning of the words 'anthropometrics' and 'ergonomics' and to find good examples of ergonomically designed products, including images of ergonomically designed handles on any product. At the workshop the pupils made a torch that had a ergonomically designed handle. Well done to you all, you worked so hard and thank you to Mr Crudge , his colleagues and our Year 13 students who assisted with the workshop. A fantastic event.

Family Focus Computer Animations Workshop

ff computer animation workshopMany families joined us at CNS for the very popular Computer Animations workshop; it was so popular we actually had to run two sessions. The workshop was run by Mr Beales and parents and children alike had great fun working on the computers in A5. Mr Beales led the workshop and ensured that everyone had a successful session. Thank you to everyone who came along.

Non-School Uniform Day

non uniform  dayOn Friday 10th October, Chipping Norton School supported two local charities, Katharine House Hospice and Helen and Douglas House, by holding a non-school uniform day. Katharine House Hospice provides services by volunteers and nurses for ill and terminally ill people with a hospice building near Banbury. Helen and Douglas House specialises in looking after children and young adults and their families in two hospice houses in Oxfordshire and the surrounding areas. The charities were nominated by two Student Council Representatives who had connections with the charities. Emma Pascoe (11EN) worked at the Chipping Norton branch of Katherine House Hospice as part of her Duke of Edinburgh Award and Annie Hawkes (11SS) proposed Helen and Douglas House after becoming aware of the charity’s important work after the death of her close friend’s younger brother.

The day was advertised by the Student Council around the school and the town. The shops put up posters with QR codes which sent you to the charities’ websites in order to raise their publicity. While Years 7-11 dressed in their own clothes, sixth form dressed in costumes from ‘ancient civilisations’ and on the day, most were dressed in togas and furs! Everyone brought in £2 to support the local charities and altogether we raised £1722.97! This money will go towards medical equipment for the charities and refurbishments for their hospice buildings.

Thank you to everyone who took part and helped raise money for these two local charities.
