Sixth Form student leaders raise £438 for Comic Relief

By Emily Treweek, Year 12 student: As a new group of student leaders in Sixth Form, this was the first event we organised. Twenty-four of us all clubbed our ideas together to come up with an exciting day to raise money for Comic Relief.

This included running a raffle for a red-themed hamper and a lucky squares game (thank you to Miss Blenkiron and Harrild for manning this, we couldn’t have done it without you! and a bake sale, for which seven of us baked a selection of red themed treats. We also had ‘Just Dance’ on the Wii in the bistro for people to pay to take part in, and we encouraged as many people as possible to wear red. With all these activities put together we raised £438.61 for Comic Relief so thank you to everyone who took part and donated money.

Once-in-a-lifetime experience for Richmond School Choir

Richmond School and Sixth Form Choir stepped out on stage at the Sage, Gateshead, for a once-in-a-lifetime experience with Collabro, the world’s most-successful musical theatre group. The 29-strong choir of boys and girls, ranging from Years 7 to 12, were chosen for the performance after Stephen Boyd, Lead Teacher of Music, auditioned for the ‘Collabro search for choirs’, submitting video footage and recordings of the choir.  

The choir were delighted to be selected to sing with Collabro, the 2014 Britain’s Got Talent competition winners, as part of their 51-date tour, which culminates at the Royal Albert Hall in April.

It’s a big ‘YES@Richmond School’ as Lottery award sparks a legacy of inclusive sports across the North

YES@Richmond School is delighted to announce funding of £9,992 from the National Lottery Awards for All’s ‘Big Lottery Fund’, to support a series of inclusive community sport opportunities for young people with Development Coordination Disorder (DCD), from across the North Yorkshire, Co Durham and Teesside.

The bid, titled ‘Activities for All – A pathway for those with coordination difficulties’ was put together by Kath Lawson, Specialist Teacher, and Steffy Cappleman, Marketing Coordinator,  who recognised that students with coordination difficulties do not regularly access sporting activities, not because of their difficulties but due to lack of opportunity and provision. Supported by The Youth Sport Trust, Stage1Cycles from Hawes, Richmond and The Dales Swimming Club, Richmond Leisure Trust, Pilates Teacher Anne Thorogood and Vic Sellers from Aspire Dance, the Yes@RichmondSchool team aim to highlight the importance of the availability of sports activities for all.
