Last Saturday, some of our international students enjoyed a day trip to the amazing Winter Wonderland, in London.
On Monday 2nd December, twenty-one of Rochester Independent College’s finest Year 11 Geographers travelled to sunny Reculver to undertake fieldwork data collection for their GCSE Geography coursework:
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.
The year 11 Art and Photography students ventured out of the college and headed off to sunny (rainy) Margate. The sun was definitely not shining but we headed out with our jackets on and cameras at the ready, in search of lots of intersecting research and material for their personal projects.
