Teachers Go Bald for Cancer
Last Friday, Teachers and Pupils braved the cut of the scissors and the buzz of the trimmer to either go bald, or donate pony tails as part of or charity drive to support the Teenage Cancer Trust.  TCT are currently looking after our very own Nicole Lowther who was regretfully diagnosed with Hogkins Lymphoma before the summer.  As a show of support for Nicole the entire school came together for this event in what has been an incredible display of school and community spirit.  Special thanks go to Mrs Jayne Gordon (RMPS teacher) and Ms Lynne Forster (AFA) for coming up with the idea and organizing the event.  Both Mrs Gordon and Ms Forster together with Mr Rennie (Maths) and Mr Orrock (Head Teacher) were fully shaved whilst Mrs Kay (Depute Head Teacher) and two pupils, Rachel Egan and Emma Carrigan donated ponytails.  Fundraising has now reached over £12000 and is that total is still rising.  You can read more about this on our School web-site.

STEM Club
A Science, Technologies, Engineering and Maths club will be up and running Wednesday lunch times as of 19th September! Pupils from all year groups are welcome.  Our first challenge will be to construct a Rube Goldberg Instrument!  The club is a good opportunity to have some fun as well as earn yourself recognition for achievement through the CREST awards scheme!  Please come along Room 225 and bring your lunch if possible.
