Both nominations, and in particular our WOW award, have been achieved for work highlighting our ‘CHS Community Pledge’ of Community, Action and Campaign. This has enabled Chorlton High School to lead and develop numerous successful charity drives and positive social action projects in a coordinated and meaningful way. Over the last few years all students and staff have helped to drive and contribute to our Pledge.


 
Below are just a few examples of how this work has been led by our students, and has involved Chorlton High collaborating alongside a fantastic array of amazing community partners and to highlight important social causes, both locally and worldwide.

COMMUNITY:
We pledge to work as a community and show kindness for others.

Working with local Food Bank Charities, like Barakah Food Bank, over many years to collect much needed food and distribute it within our community; especially over the holiday period where we know families struggle.

The Refugee Crisis centre is very close our hearts as teachers have spent time in Calais as well as supporting refugee students within our school community. 
The Centrepoint Homeless hub for teenagers in Manchester; we have been raising money to sponsor a room to get young people off the streets and back on their feet.

As a school we also have pledged to carry out “12 Acts of Kindness” in December, something that is simple but makes such a difference to our school community and this is part of what makes us all happy. We also held the Great Get Together in school celebrating the diversity and multi-cultural community that makes CHS so fantastic to be a part of.


ACTION:
We pledge to fundraise for local and global charities to support others.

Raising funds for MIND, Cancer Research, Children in Need, Macmillan Coffee Mornings and over 30 different charities. We also continue to celebrate the “Choose Love” concert dedicated to our refugee campaigns and many, many more. The Pensioners’ Party is hosted every year to make sure that the elderly in our community come and enjoy the festive season with us. As our students serve tea and sandwiches, the pensioners with their carers watch a special performance of the school musical. This is also the opportunity for our students to chat and connect with our visitors.
 
This year has also marked our own Gay Straight Alliance (GSA) Club enabling students to promote inclusivity and diversity within our school, embracing the work of the Proud Trust and organising our very first Chorlton Pride event.
