Today we are welcoming our new college chickens. Say hello to Doris Hay, Barbara Henworth, Hens Solo, Princess Layer, Lindsey Lohen and Gretta Henberg.
We had the pleasure of hosting Positively Mad at the college today who delivered three workshops for various year groups. They kicked off with an interactive and reflective personal development workshop focusing on up-skilling students for our Year 7s-9s. They then delivered an Exam Busters workshop for our year 11s to empower students with exam preparation tips, revision tools and stress management techniques. Finishing the day off with an immersive Super Speed Study Skills workshop for year 10 which inspired students to take control of their studying.
On Monday 2nd December, twenty-one of Rochester Independent College’s finest Year 11 Geographers travelled to sunny Reculver to undertake fieldwork data collection for their GCSE Geography coursework:
A group of yr 12 and 13 potential doctors took a trip to the Vaudeville Theatre, London, to see Adam Kay’s hilarious – and moving – one-man show ‘This is Going to Hurt – Live’. Based on the bestselling book of his diaries when working as a junior doctor there was much laughter as Kay recounted stories and sang songs about medical conditions as diverse as yellow fever and OCD and described in gory detail episodes from his years in Obstetrics and Gynaecology.
On Tuesday 29th October, 6 boarders had a go at pumpkin carving for the upcoming Halloween Party. Despite most of them being “first timers”, they did a great job and carved 5 smiley and spooky pumpkins. One of them has a shape of a Monsters Inc character! Simply amazing!
