IT’S been a busy two terms at Rawmarsh Community School...
From plays and presentations, to sports trips and competitions, the pace has never slowed, with much more planned for the rest of the school year.
Both staff and pupils were delighted to receive a new minibus this term, from RCS Professional Development Ltd, to help with transport between events.
Among many successful school-based efforts was a bumper Sport Relief week, when pupils dressed up to strut their stuff and complete sponsored miles for charity.
This followed a recent thirteenth Movement Evening on the theme of the Olympics. Colourful stage performances from over 100 students were shown to 600 people including the Mayor of Rotherham, Coun Shaun Wright and Mayoress Mrs Lisa Wright.
A programme for Able and Talented students saw them enjoy team-building sessions including rock-climbing, and for those who are handy with hairbrush and scissors, an in-house hairdressing competition revealed plenty of new talent.
Sports-wise, Niall Gleaden and Callum Bramhall, with the rest of the UK Blackhawks team, went to Hong Kong to play in the Inline Cup - a large and prestigious inline hockey tournament. They returned with Gold having had a fantastic experience, said a staff spokesman.
Pupils who will join others at Rawmarsh in September will have an induction day in June then will spend two weeks at RCS. Their special project will be ‘Out of this World’, to include a space dome visit.
