Budoor's poppy fundraiser

Budoor Poppies sml

As 2014 marks the 100th anniversary of the outbreak of the First World War we have been learning about the history of commemoration and in particular the tradition of wearing poppies. One of our students, Budoor, age 12 was inspired to make crocheted and loom band poppies over the half term. They really look fabulous and very professional. She is selling them to raise money for The Royal British Legion. The crocheted poppies cost £3 and the loom band poppies cost £2. If you would like to buy any please contact the school office. Thank you very much! 

Thanks for helping with our minibus!

A donation was made from the concert at the Swiss Embassy which will go towards our new minibus – many thanks to all involved!

25th Celebrations

students-thumbAmazingly, it’s been a whole twenty-five years since Janette Steel founded the Chelsea Community Hospital School. We celebrated our special birthday with a fabulous party where staff – including our two longest serving members Mary and Brian – were joined by past students, friends, volunteers and Comenius visitors from Iceland and Ireland. A huge thank-you to Harrods for the delicious catering, all our sponsors, FCCHS and our volunteers, especially Eddie the driver. A particular thank you to Cindy who couldn't be with us but set the project in motion, and to everyone who worked so hard to make it all possible. Here's to the next twenty-five years!

Hadisa at 'Guardians of the Galaxy’ Premier

Hadisa1smlOne of our students, Hadisa, went on a very exciting evening out to the ‘Guardians of the Galaxy’ Premiere at half term. She has spent the summer since making a beautiful book out of marbled paper, writing about her experience and the film; ‘This was the first time I went to the cinema, it was the ‘Guardians of the Galaxy’ Premiere in 3D. Premiere means ‘first’ in French, so this means it was the first showing of the film. Nobody had seen it before so it was very special!’

 

Congratulations to our students!

We need your memories!

In 2014 we are celebrating 25 years of the Chelsea Community Hospital School. Before we start on the next 25 years we are taking a moment to look back and see how we got to where we are today. The plan is to collect our memories and milestones from that journey here 25years.cchs.org.uk and then to make a book with a selection of the material we’ve collected – and this is where we need your help.
