Carlene from Get-Lene Fitness Academy hosted a one hour bootcamp for some of our sixth-formers today. Filled with exercise circuits, from kettlebell training to boxing it certainly got them into that Friday feeling!
The Intermediate maths challenge was held online on Tuesday 23rd February 2021. 15 students attended in total and 3 of them got a special award. This means that one of them was in the top 40%, and two others were in the top 20% of all participants in the UK.
The Junior maths challenge was held in RIC on Tuesday 27th April. 20 students attended in total and two of them got a special award. One of them in the top 40% and the other in the top 20% of all participants in the UK.
We wish them the best in their future endeavours.
Our Monday Motivation this week is RIC Around the world. Here at Rochester Independent College we are fundraising for Young Minds. We are challenging ourselves to travel the circumference of the Earth which is a whopping 24,901 miles!
All students and Staff will be partaking by running, jogging, walking, cycling and even skateboarding as far as they can to help us travel around the world! This includes our boarding students who are based in many countries around the world from Latvia to Japan.
We chose Young Minds as we are focusing a lot on Mental Health and Well-being during the very difficult times we find ourselves in. Taking care of your Mental Health is very important and the resources available through Young Minds for young people and their families are so valuable. Please help us in supporting this organisation so close to our students hearts.

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!!!

Whilst we remain on lockdown, it is more important than ever to keep ourselves motivated and enthusiastic about exercise. Not only for obvious health reasons, but for our mental health too. That is why, we are setting you a monthly sporting challenge.
A group of students from year 10 and 11 participated in the Invicta Secondary Team Maths Challenge which was hosted at Invicta Grammar School in Maidstone on Tuesday 19th November 2019 . One of our two teams came in 3rd place out of the twelve participating teams.
The competition consisted of four rounds, the format very similar to that of the Regional and Final Team Maths Challenge hosted by the UK Maths Trust every year.
- Round 1 consisted of 15 worded problem solving questions
- Round 2 involved puzzles with missing numbers in squares
- Round 3 consisted of 11 mathematically challenging problem solving questions
- Round 4 was a ‘relay’ problem solving task during which students had to find the solution to a problem which represented the value of a letter. Students then had to use the values of previous letters in subsequent problems in order to find the following solutions.
The students demonstrated great team work skills and they had to rely on each others’ strengths in order to solve the problems which were from various areas of mathematics.
Congratulations to Eric, Catharine, Crystal, Justin, Nina, Neal, Jerry and William who will be participating in the national UKMT Team Maths Challenge in March 2020..
