No One is Immune to Climate Change - Banner Drop

Worthing Extinction Rebellion (XR) performed a thought and action provoking banner drop at 6am this morning on Worthing Pier. XR said "The world is way off track to stop run away climate and ecological breakdown. Worthing is a seaside town and sea rise levels are predicted to flood many areas. We must Act Now."

Link here: https://coastal.climatecentral.org/map/11/-0.3506/51.0052/?theme=sea_level_rise&map_type=coastal_dem_comparison&contiguous=true&elevation_model=best_available&forecast_year=2030&pathway=rcp85&percentile=p95&return_level=return_level_1&slr_model=kopp_2014

Worthing XR state that most Paris Climate Agreement pledges have been broken. "We will pass 1.5' warming in the next five years and the governments own Climate Change Committee report predicts a 4' warming by 2100. A world not fit for habitation by any living species."

They urge that the catastrophic effects on human society and the natural world may spiral out of control if the Climate and Ecological Emergency is not addressed in time, including
⦁ Biodiversity Loss
⦁ Sea level rise
⦁ Desertification
⦁ Wildfires
⦁ Water shortage
⦁ Crop failure
⦁ Extreme weather

The combined result of these destabilising events will be:
⦁ Millions displaced
⦁ Disease
⦁ Increased risk of wars and conflicts
⦁ Impacts on human rights

The aim of the banner drop is to provoke thought and action amongst Worthing people because "We are in a planetary emergency. We must immediately begin improving carbon absorption, reduce emissions and stop the harm we are causing to the natural world." They state that "The task before us is daunting but we have proved big changes can be made during the Covid19 pandemic. We must Act Now."

Students, staff and parents are celebrating another year of fantastic GCSE results at Chatsmore Catholic High School, soon to be St Oscar Romero Catholic School.

In light of the extraordinary year, with grades being based on teacher assessment, schools in the Worthing area have agreed not to publish individual results. However, the school is delighted that for the third year in a row, the school has achieved record results, surpassing all previous attainment for prior years and confirming our continued upward trend of GCSE performance.
Stand out performances of individual students include;

Silas Turner, who achieved 8 grade 9s, 1 grade 8 and 3 grade 7s

Headteacher, Mr Byrne said: “I could not be prouder of our Year 11 leavers. Despite the challenges of the pandemic our students remained focused and always gave their best. The results they have achieved reflect their hard work and have broken all previous records. It has been fantastic to see a record number of students achieve the highest grades of 7s, 8s and 9s.

Student quotes;

Millie White – “I’m extremely grateful to the staff at Chatsmore for all their hard work and effort over the years that has allowed me to achieve my grades and I am incredibly thankful for all the opportunities this school has opened up for me.”

Silas Turner “I'm very proud of my results and I am excited for the future. I worked very hard for my mock exams and I am so happy that my final grades reflects all the hard work I put in for my GCSE's."

Katie Cox ““Although it has been a strange year with unusual circumstances I am delighted with my results. I feel that all my hard has been recognised despite not being able to sit the exams“


Mr Byrne added: “I would like to thank our incredible staff, both teaching and non-teaching, for everything they did to support our students in achieving such excellent results. Thanks also to our wonderful parents who play such a vital role in supporting the success of their child.”

Worthing High Celebrate Exam Results Today

Pan Panayiotou Headteacher said: “This academic year has been extraordinarily challenging for parents, carers, students and their teachers. This makes it even more special to celebrate such an outstanding set of results but more importantly, see so many of our students receive such fantastic, well-deserved grades. Due to the exceptional circumstances we faced this year, all locality schools have agreed not to share specific details on attainment and progress but to focus on celebrating those students who have done incredibly well. It gives us great pride to see that so many students have received the qualifications they need, to take the next steps in fulfilling their ambitions and goals.”
Outstanding individual results include:
Lucy BLOWER
SKYE BULLER
Archie CAIRNS
Erin CHACKSFIELD
Samuel CRABB
Freya DRAPAJLO
Lottie ERRATT-ROSE
Gemma MEDWELL
Isabel NEWINGTON
Galatee OGER-LIBOR
Toby PERRY
Rafferty WEST
“More than ever, this year’s results demonstrate our drive to support the well-being of all our staff and students and our shared commitment to our Core Values: Community, Resilience, Respect, Integrity and Excellence. We wish all our students the very best of luck in the next phases of their lives and even though they leave Worthing High School, they will always be part of our community.”
Headteacher - Pan Panayiotou commented:
“It would not be appropriate to compare the school’s results against other schools, as this is about all schools focusing on what is right for their students and how we support them in their progression and mental well-being. This is what is really important. I have had the pleasure of working with the class of 2020 for the last 4 years and they have been a phenomenal year group. I and my other staff colleagues will miss them a great deal and will celebrate their future successes as they continue on their educational journey.”
