Tricks at RIC

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!

The pumpkins were then used to decorate the Boarders Common room to make it more “halloweeny”.

On the 31st of October Boarding staff and students shared a good amount of laughs at the Halloween Night party. Following last year’s successful evening, this year’s boarders came really prepared for the outfit/dress up competition.  The Joker seemed to be the most popular choice, together with a Scooby Doo gang. It was extremely difficult to vote for someone in particular to win, but students’ enthusiastic applauses declared the scariest mask, the funniest outfit and of course the best costume of the night.

Students also had a go at apple bobbing, picking chocolates from a bowl of flour and tinned spaghetti and also making mummies out of toilet paper in pairs. Needless to say, all the mummies were beautifully wrapped!

It was very pleasing to see such a good number of students mixing together in this lively event. The pictures speak for themselves.

A Flutter in the RIC Garden

The RIC garden was a hive of activity on Wednesday this week when the RIC Community learning group made some tasty treats for the birds to enjoy. These are now hanging proudly on the many trees.

As part of the Community Learning, the Eco Warriors group research and planned how to make bird feeders with grapefruit, lard, seeds and string. Different birds are attracted to certain foods, often reflecting their special adaptations for natural food types. For example, sparrows, wood pigeon, collared dove like large grains; woodpeckers, tits, starling like fat balls and peanuts and robin, thrushes prefer mealworms and live foods. The students then attached the bird feeders around the garden.

A Breath of Fresh Air

The great outdoors. A place that is not very likely to be a top choice for most teenagers early on a Sunday morning. However, after a little nap on the coach for some, the boarders & boarding team arrived at Kingswood Activity Centre, Ashford bright and early for a fun day of boarding activities.
