Rudheath Senior Academy Headteacher’s Newsletter
Friday 22 November 2019
Already 3 weeks in to this half term – time certainly does fly when you’re having fun!
Mr Lambert had a busy lunch time organising the 20 children taking part in the poppy run to raise money for the Royal British Legion. Children from year 7-11 took part, running on a very soggy field to secure sponsorship from their family and friends.
A highlight of the event was having old Rudheath boy Jack Harrison, now Secretary at the local British Legion, come in to present medals.
Thank you to all who ran and all who sponsored our runners. I will update you with money raised as soon as we have final numbers.
Children in Need Day
After a super busy careers Friday last week, we postponed our Children in Need Day to this Wednesday. We wore, yellow and spots, sold cakes and ate lots to raise £150. Thank you to Mrs Lockett for organising us and to all who brought cakes in for our cake sale.
Northwich Memorial Court Performance
Our Pitch Perfect Choir, Ukulele Group, Guitar Group and Lydia Orton all performed at the Edsential Music Together Showcase Concert at Northwich Memorial Court on Wednesday. I had the best seats in the house sitting with representatives from Edsential and the Arts Council and we were treated to a great evening of performances from 6 schools and 2 Vale Royal ensembles.
The performances from Rudheath Senior were just stunning, singing and playing “Tonight You Belong to Me” by Gene Austin, “Soap” by Melanie Martinez and “Radioactive” by Imagine Dragons. It was great to watch them and the loved it when I heard children from the other schools there commenting on how good the performances were.
Well done to all involved and a big thank you to Miss Pim for all the time put in to rehearsals and the evening itself.
Gambling Awareness and Protection Seminar
Mr Russell organised for Mark to speak to key stage 4 learners about the negative impact gambling had had on his life as part of our PSHCE programme on Wednesday. There were some tough messages that we can all learn from in his presentation. Do speak to your children about what they learned.
Moss Farm Football – Raising Money for Lille
Twenty learners who are off to Lille for the Christmas markets raised money playing football at Moss Farm this week. The event was organised by year 11s and I have to say they did a great job sourcing sponsorship and an all-weather pitch #ambition these guys are going to change the world!
Year 7 Parents’ Evening
Thank you to all who attended year 7 parents’ evening this week and a huge thank you to our student helpers who manned reception and provided refreshments.
If you didn’t manage to see your child’s teachers, please contact school to make an appointment or catch up on the phone.
Another super week, lots of fundraising and hard work. As always super proud of my team. Have a lovely weekend.
