Celebrating the European Language Day

On Friday 25th of September we decorated the school with posters as always, the Graphics department provided us with one made by students. There were also some prints of poems, tongue twisters and  riddles In different languages on the walls, to encourage the students  to pronounce different sounds.

Kent Artist Profile: Inside Kent

Today we received a printed copy of Inside Kent Magazine (October Issue) featuring a Q&A about one of our Graphics & Photography teachers Sarah. The article which showcases some of her many freelance projects as a Graphic Designer & Illustrator also includes a little bit about why she chose to pursue her career in teaching and her background in the subject. You can find it online here (Page 8-9) in its digital form, as well as inside printed copies which can be found in various venues around Kent.

Virgin London Marathon

Neal Layton is raising a small but important amount for the NSPCC.

A few years ago Neal Layton and two others started by running a couple of 10K’s, they progressed to ultras (London to Brighton and Thames Path 100k’s) so Neal now aims to be the last of the original three amigo’s to show that he still has it and do our bit to raise some money!!!

Fast Tomato

As part of the careers offering being headed up by Neal Layton we will be utilising fast Tomato throughout the lower school. Since 2003, Fast Tomato has been one of the most popular online career guidance programmes for young people, helping millions of students explore the many different career opportunities open to them. The system will be introduced in the first term back with the opportunity for all in the lower school to take part.

After a quick sign up, students answer 72 simple questions relating to work which normally takes less than 10 minutes. This produces their individual Career Profile. Starting at Y8 this will help to signpost potential routes of study, and information careers which may be of interest, work styles and work places, helping them appreciate how their unique make-up can fit into the world of employment.

Go Leo!

Leo has shaved his head this summer in support of his Aunt Talita who has been diagnosed with cancer, he may stand out a bit but let’s admit it is for all the right reasons. We all need a little bit of support at times and Leo is showing the type of “community” spirit we should all be proud of at RIC. We salute you Leo and wish you and you family (and Aunt Talita) all of the best!!

Medway Champions

We are pleased to be part of the “Medway Champions” initiative designed to boost the Medway area as a great place to live, work, learn and visit. It also showcases the great businesses we have in the area and RIC will be doing its bit to promote these businesses and Medway in general.

Happy World Meditation Day

Today, across the globe people are taking the opportunity to press pause and reboot in celebration of world meditation day. A few weeks ago we posted 5 tips for mindfulness written by Nadia. Meditation and mindfulness have a huge relationship, however meditation is not just activities like Yoga, it can be much more than that!

At 12 noon the well known app ‘Headspace’ are going live on YouTube to give everyone the opportunity to learn how to meditate in ten minutes, explain how their app works, and enjoy a global mediation session from the comfort of our homes . You can join in via this link.

For our RIC students Nadia is running mindfulness sessions weekly on a Thursday 12:30pm as well as Monday at 4:15pm.

Jenny is also running online Yoga on a Wednesday at 4:00pm.

To finish with a quote from Nadia – “When you wake up or go to bed, think of 3 things in your day you are grateful for”.

Happy World Meditation day!

RICWW – What’s Been Going On?
