Before the October half-term, a group of intrepid Year Twelve AS Geography students braved everything the Lake District’s great outdoors could throw at them. Mud-covered, soggy and cold, they could be seen scrambling over scree and ambling over arêtes in order to make their way up through the clouds to the top of Stickle Tarn.

Dom Sokalski and Giuseppe Scalisi, both 6th Form pupils at Rickmansworth School, recently arranged a Ricky Jam at Croxley Skate Park. The event was held in memory of their friend, Richard Johnson, who sadly died suddenly from leukaemia in May last year, just before his 16th birthday.

Imagine a room filled with strong opinions and open minds concerned about current world issues. Four students battling it out in front of their audience, debating about what is the right action or belief we should have on the issue at hand. This is what students at Rickmansworth School have the opportunity to participate in every Wednesday in the library during their lunch break.

Blisters and bruises the size of small islands, lines under your eyes that make you resemble a panda, and not forgetting a mini-bus which developed such a strongly foul odour that the teacher wept at the prospect of having to drive it home. These are just a few of the experiences endured on our Duke of Edinburgh expedition, alongside hilarious memories, a sense of achievement and a genuine appreciation of home comforts...

Technology, where would any of us be without it? Lost, confused and very bored (after all, how rubbish would life be without Facebook?!). But technology has had a large effect on schools as well; it changed the entire face of teaching and I have seen the impact of it on schools like my own.

Eddie is a grizzled war veteran who feels trapped in the work of his father before him, fixing rides at a seaside amusement park. Then he dies in a tragic accident, trying to save a little girl from a falling cart.

As part of the A2 Biology course, a group of 45 Year 13 students spent five days on an Ecology field course at the FSC in Slapton Ley, Devon. The trip commenced with a four hour coach journey, including a single stop at the most isolated and smallest café on the M5, (where perhaps the most careless member of the group, Vicki Roberts, managed to leave her rucksack) and a showing of the legendary film, The Anchorman.

Sport and dance leadership has outgrown itself this year. The volume of exciting courses offered, the huge number of students taking them and the need to maintain the incredible team of talent and volunteering has taken Ricky PE to a new level. Volunteers are the lifeblood of our sport.

It seems that WCHT are one of a very few organisations that have the guts and common-sense to bring back apprenticeships. Oh that more companies would do the same. At least some kids leaving school might be able to forge a career in such essential things as plumbing, bricklaying, electrician, etc. − pc49plodHousing trust signs up construction work apprentices »
