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.
Clive Simmonds from British Aerospace comes to RIC next week to give a talk to our Y13 Business Studies students.
In November, our Thai scholars and students got involved in cooking some traditional dishes from their country for the boarders’ dinner.
On Friday 6th December the A-Level economists, accompanied by their teachers Michael and Neal, attend this year’s Tutor2u Economics Workshop in London. Students enjoyed an intensive day of economics study with over 200 other economists from around the country. The students took part in games and simulations to help them with applying their economic knowledge in real world contexts. Two key pieces of information I will take away from the day are that only 10% of the cars sold in the UK last month were electric powered, and 70% of the world’s supply of Jade comes from Myanmar! As you can tell, it was a varied day. Below are the students posing with their workshop packs at the end of the event. We had a great time.
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.
