Talk 1: Shark behaviour and conservation

Visiting CCHS for the second time, shark conservationist Dan Abbott delivered a talk to over 40 lower 6th and upper 6th biologists about behavioural patterns he had observed in sharks as part of his internship with White Shark Africa.

CCHS raised over £700 for local charity the Catherine Bullen Foundation through 2 fundraising events this term. Roger and Linda Bullen came into CCHS and gave a presentation about the work of the foundation and the latest project in Namibia that is being undertaken to students in years 7 and 8.

This year I decided to send in some of the Lower School work to the 13th National Students' Art Exhibition to be held again at The Mall Galleries. 

I am thrilled to announce that Hannah Eley, Angela Wong and Victoria Pratt in Year 11, in addition to Abigail Bartlett and Bethany Francis in Year 13 have been selected to exhibit their work at this prestigious event.
