Students at Clacton Coastal Academy have been continuing their Christmas tradition of helping charity this time of year by organising a collection for the Clacton Foodbank. Year 11 students Gabriella Stewart and her sister Mollie Cook instigated the idea and it has been a huge success. 

Staff have generously contributed gifts for the Salvation Army to give to local children, particularly teenagers in need this Christmas. Tracey Hemming, Principal commented that: “It is part of the CCA way to give back to our community. Students and staff have embraced the true meaning of Christmas by putting others before themselves and I have been touched by the generosity of the CCA community.”

The prefect team have also been working hard and have organised a Christmas Jumper day where students and staff pay £1 to be donated to local charity, St Helena’s Hospice. On Wednesday night they will also be holding a staff quiz night where teams pay £5 to enter. This is the second year the event has taken place, yet another event which is becoming a CCA tradition thanks to Deputy Head Boy, Ben Rockell and the prefects.
