15 Oct St. Richard’s Catholic College Open Evening
The wet and windy night did not deter visitors from St Richard’s Catholic College’s busiest Open Evening to date, held Tuesday 6th October. Following an address by the Principal, Miss Cronin, year 7 pupil Maddie Baszczak spoke about her experience of taster days in the summer term of year 6 and the transition programme which helped her to settle in. She talked about how coming to St Richards has encouraged her to become more independent and confident.
Highlights included: a CSI History Murder Mystery, culinary magic in the Food Technology room, sports, music and Dance Company demonstrations
The evening was a wonderful opportunities for parents, carers and prospective pupils to see all that the school has to offer. Current pupils excelled themselves in a whirlwind of vibrant performances and activities. Highlights included: a CSI History Murder Mystery, culinary magic in the Food Technology room, sports, music and Dance Company demonstrations, as well as all other departments being brought to life with displays, music, competitions and events. Once again the Science department drew large crowds with their propensity to both dissect and set alight in a variety of exciting experiments!
Potential parents, carers and pupils were able to speak to the specialist teachers in charge of the excellent transition programme, special educational needs and disabilities and literacy, along with a multitude of other staff who were able to provide an insight into life at St Richards. Over 200 current pupils were available to provide conversation, answer questions and guide visitors around the school.
