Raynes Park High School - August 2014

A Day of Adventure & Fun 

Every year The Access Centre is fortunate enough to be invited to Chessington World of Adventure by the Morden Rotary Club. Community chairman Tony Hunn, contacts schools in the Merton area inviting SEN students to take part. This specially organised 'Kids Out' event is specifically for children with a range of special educational needs and people come from far and wide to enjoy it. Morden Rotary kindly supply sweatshirts and baseball caps as a memento of the day. 

This day is very much appreciated by staff and students of the Access Centre. It is an invaluable opportunity for our students to build on their social and emotional skills and social understanding of the world around them in a really fun way. 

Every year the students are full of excitement about what they have seen or what they heard during their time at Chessington - we cannot express our sincere gratitude enough to Tony Hunn and Morden Rotary Club.

And the Winner is... 

MediaManiacs across the country gathered yesterday for an evening of gold, glamour and glory. The red carpet was rolled out to welcome A-list celebrities from all over RollyWood. The paparazzi were out in force to capture the most anticipated event of the year. Last month saw the 2nd Annual RPHS Oscars Awards Ceremony, a celebration showcasing work produced throughout the academic year by Media and Film students. The evening also celebrated the Visual Arts, acknowledging outstanding work in Art and Photography. 

The star studded event was well attended, with staff and students presented with an exhibition of creativity. The competition was fierce, as Rollywood’s elite fought for the coveted prize: the RPHS Oscar. There were tears of joy and bitter disappointment, although all students were magnanimous in both victory and near The Media department would like to thank everyone who attended the evening and made it such a special occasion. A special shout out to all the Media and Film students who have worked incredibly hard this year.

We are the Champions! - UDO National Schools Street Dance Champions -  ‘Make it Rayne’.

 A 10 strong team from Raynes Park High School took the UDO National Schools Street Dancing Competition by storm on Saturday 14th June, at the Winter Gardens in Blackpool. 

Following regional heats, the team beat 14 schools in the Year 10 to Year 13 age group to pick up the coveted trophy. PE and BTEC dance teacher Emma Bartle said “The students all worked so hard they were an absolute credit to our school, they beat some really tough crews. One student said it was the best day of his life and for another, it confirmed that dance was the career they wanted to pursue.
