What a turnout there was at the Friendship party for our incoming Y7 cohort last Thursday! 135 students and their parents spent two hours with us in a party atmosphere. The students were split into teams and participated in a quiz written and compered by RPA Parent Gordon Barnes and then had to make a dress out of newspaper with only sellotape as their aid. There were some fantastically creative designs which bodes well for the Technology Department in September! The RPA Ambassadors were a credit to themselves and their school, the PTA surpassed themselves with their bunting and refreshment management and the new members of our community showed great enthusiasm and humour. A huge welcome to you all!
