Citizenship Project – Year 8

For the last two months, all students in Year 8 have been planning a project to work with the elderly in 3 local care homes – Thomas Hardy, Meadowrythe and Lane House. Working in teams, the students have made cakes, sang and played games, told stories and generally just chatted to the residents. There are a huge number of care homes in our vicinity and the idea of the project is to close the gap between the two generations.

Our students have been fantastic! The residents have thoroughly enjoyed being entertained by the likes of CJ and Dan among others. They have loved the cakes and the chats and watching Jack Smith be so enthralled with 93 year old Vic’s history was lovely to see! These are just some of the things that came to mind but all the students have been equally great and all have benefitted from having to come out of their comfort zones and to use their social skills. We have been very proud of them all.

Thanks to all the students (and parents for providing the cakes) for their hard work.


Christmas Boxes


We decided this year to focus on the quality of the boxes rather than the quantity. Although having the boxes as a house competition was fun, generally the Competition became more important than the meaning behind the boxes.

Forms were asked to do up to 10 and we have collected around 180, which are now being distributed to our friends at Thomas Hardy, Meadowrythe, Lane House, Sunningdale and Age UK. “Santa Stephen Wallbank”, who has a gift with the elderly, has been delivering them with the choir. Since September, Miss Perry and the choir have been practising Christmas Carols and have spent two days singing and dancing in the care homes. It’s been a wonderful atmosphere created by the students!

Both these projects are so important for the students to understand that those ‘life’ skills of communication and working together are just as important as academic achievement.

WKU World Kickboxing Champion of the World

Congratulations to Jack Dilloway (Year 8) who captained the England Under 12 squad in the WKU World Kickboxing Championships in London during the last week of August.

Loo of the Year 2014

For many years pupil and staff toilets at Rawlett were far from golden.  Pupils often raised this as their number one issue in school.  We listened and responded so well that our refurbished toilets have been recognised with a gold award for 2014.
