Pursue Your Passion

Form 8b took part in a project called ‘Pursue Your Passion’ during some of their form time this year.   

‘Pursue Your Passion’ (PYP) is a way for students to focus on something they love, research it and create an end project such as a presentation. This can be written or documented in other ways (such as video or website) or a combination of ways.  It has the feel of a University-style assignment – a great way to up-skill their academic approach.

By focusing on one of their passions, students get to explore in depth, meaning that they will produce a good level of analysis and helping them think about how to present AND what they might be interested in studying further. It also gives them a chance to engage with a potential career path, opening up options for work experience with potential visits to businesses/charities etc as part of the project.  Naturally, with lockdown restrictions, students were not able to visit anywhere but some of  them did reach out to experts to help them with their research.  

Projects include:

FREE Audible for Kids

For as long as schools are closed, we’re open. Right now, kids everywhere can instantly stream an incredible collection of stories, including titles across eight different languages, that will help them continue dreaming, learning, and just being kids.

Explore the collection, select a title and start listening. You can find it here.

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!!

RICWW – What’s Been Going On?

Since lockdown, the way of schooling may have changed by entering the virtual world of RIC Without Walls, however our students’ efforts have definitely not. We asked our departments to feedback any new ways of learning, activities as well as any fun things that have been going on in their virtual classrooms.
