World Cup - 13/03/2014
Surprise Award - Click here for pictures
Pupils and staff at Shoeburyness High School were caught by surprise when the solid gold World Cup Trophy was unveiled during a football training session led by their sports coach and mentor Rachael O’Brien.
Rachael topped a national campaign run by Coca-Cola and sports charity StreetGames which encouraged coaches and teams to nominate individuals who had made an outstanding contribution in their community. Her reward was the FIFA World Cup™ Trophy making its first visit to her local town during the GB leg of the tour.
Rachael is a Streetgames sports coach and mentor working with kids from deprived areas in Southend – and has been doing so for the past 18 months. She also works across all sectors of the community to help community cohesion within the town, encouraging people to play sport together and break down any barriers.
Huw Williams, deputy headteacher of Shoeburyness High School, said: “This is a great day for the school, local schoolchildren and for Rachael herself who fully deserves this wonderful recognition. She really cares passionately about her job and the young people that she works with and this is recognition of that. Thanks to her hard work and enthusiasm she has given the pupils a day that they really will never forget.”
Cllr James Courtenay, executive councillor for children and learning said: “This is a fantastic day for Southend, and well deserved recognition for Rachael who does so much for the local community and local schoolchildren. It is a great honour for the town to be the first stop of this week long tour and further helps to put Southend on the map. I am very proud that we have such great people living and working within our community – people who make a real difference to other people’s lives.”
NINTH YEAR OF SUCCESS AT SHOEBURYNESS!
Mr Mark Schofield
A great start to the new term, English and Maths results for the GCSE examinations that some of our Year 11 students sat in November are in. English has now moved from an A*-C of 49.5% to 64.2%, a huge 8.4% above where last year’s Year 11 finished. Our FANTASTIC Year 11s in Maths added an increase of 14.7%. This means that Maths students in this school now have 56.1% with A*-C in GCSE Maths, just 3% less than the school achieved last year at the end of August, and will still have the Methods paper in Maths to add to this in the summer. Shoeburyness High School students have already exceeded last year’s percentage of students getting both an A*-C in English and Maths: WELL DONE!
